The actor disclosed this during an AfricaMagic programme hosted by Joselyn Dumas last week.
When asked why he had to openly kiss former lover Nadia Buari on the set of his TV show, Jim Iyke Unscripted, he said kissing ladies was a part of him. He said he kisses his sisters in the open as well and doesn’t find it unusual.
He spoke further: “I have once kissed them on set, and so, when walked into the room where two of them were with their boy friends, I kissed them one after the other and their boy friends were mad at me. I have also kissed over 200 actresses on set and nobody is talking about it.”
According to Vanguard, the actor has had to deal with a lot of negative things said about him in the media. But he explained that these stories aren’t always true.
Jim further said what people say doesn’t matter as much as what a person believes about himself.
He said: “Many times, a lot of negative things have been said about me in the media. It is not basically about what they say about you, it is about you believing in yourself. The first thing is, what I believe in, and what people say about me is secondary.“
Jim Iyke, born James Ikechukwu Esomugha, welcomed his son Dubem Harvis with an emotional post on Instagram on September 25. In the post, he described the mother of his child as a superwoman, among other things.
