Jim Iyke: Nollywood is ‘too boring’

Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, may be looking for more controversy, going

In his words, "Nothing was challenging anymore. It was too easy and

too perpetual. It was too boring and too predictable.

" I had no room to pursue or hone other skill sets I had. I didn't

have time for…hobbies, family, and friends, personal and social

advancements. Something had to give! After all, I was the guy that

made 38 films in a year.'

He also spoke about his relationship with Ghanaian actress, Nadia

Buari, who he says is a solid and down-to-earth woman.

Addressing their rumoured split, Iyke says, "We have embraced who we

are and learnt to create our own world and expectations. We have ups

and downs like every other couple. We have our strength and weakness

as well. At the end of the day, rumours of break ups and make ups

ought to abound. It really doesn't matter.

" A relationship is a continuous work. Those that give up, perhaps

weren't committed enough. Those that go in for the long haul, suck up

" The people that judge harshly are obviously the ones that live far

from their desired lives. We just live the best way we know how and

leave the rest to the author and finisher of all things", he added.
