jim-iyke-bella-naija-who-am-iAll we have to say is that this is exactly how we expected a song from Jim Iyke to sound! Everyone has been talking about this song since it debuted on the internet about a week ago so we decided to join the circus. As you have probably heard, Nollywood superstar Jim Iyke is foraying into the music industry. Here is his 1st single ‘Who Am I’ featuring 2Face produced by Puffy T. We hear that a high-budget video for the track has been shot in the US. We cant wait to see it!

Big Shout Out & Thanks to NotJustOk for the track!

    When I listen to Nigerian music, I don’t want to hear hip hop, be original! I love reggae music because they sing with their accents and the beat is original. Jim this is GARBAGE

    Na 2face save this song…if not, I no for fit listen for more than 30 seconds to that noise maker…haba! Serious noise making…abeg, abeg, Jim Iyke, no be by force to be musician…if na so, all of us go dey rap dey go na…abeg, spare us from your noise. Normally, I no too dey leave comment for music cos I no too sabi, but this one, I no fear to talk say na serious CRAP.

    Quick question: is this an early April fool’s joke or is this song real?

    If only abs could sing,this ear-torture here would have won a grammy at the very least…
    one of the worst “songs” i have ever heard…
    the GRA-GRA intro was typical jim iyke–all noise and the emptiest barrel

    Did tu-face do this for free?or just for the heck of it..

    now i need to go bitch slap myself for wasting about 5 minutes of my life listening to this cacophony of nonsense…5 minutes i sadly can never reclaim back and i can only remember by the torture my ear had to endure

    Jim Iyke you is a CLOWN for real..THATS WHO YOU ARE

    March 30, 2009 at 3:39 pm

  39. miss

    March 31, 2009 at 5:24 am

    April 1, 2009 at 8:18 am

    I don’t know who keeps lying to all these wannabe actors turned singers. If you ain’t got it, u ain’t got it, please stick to what you got. So Jim Iyke stick to modeling, not even acting, because his acting still need a lot of improvement, with his fake yankee accent. 2face is a good artist, and you don’t want to associate yourself with people who obviously don’t have much to offer in music.

  48. nonemoss

    April 1, 2009 at 8:25 am

    hisses!!! I cannot stand Jim Iyke he is cannot act and def has no talent as a singer.

  49. Bola

    April 1, 2009 at 3:53 pm

    LOL, its really sad. Cus JI was once good. Once he adopted his ‘wanna wanna’ accent, then things began to spiral downhill.
    his arrogance is just too overbearing, we need thos bera ctors to step up to the plate!

  57. RAGE

    April 2, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    HORRIBLE , TERRIBLE …RUBBISH SONG. JIM IYKE WHAT WERE U THINKIN, WHO LIED TO YOU. THIS IS UNNECESSARY AND IRRELEVANT. STICK TO ACTING CUZ THAT IS WHAT U DO BEST. NA BY FORCE TO SING… AND ALL THIS FAKE NONSENSE ACCENT WHERE IS IT COMIN FROM?? PLEASE JIM IYKE FIND YOUR OWN IDENTITY U SEEM CONFUSED …

  58. LOLA

    April 2, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    Jim, u seriously need therapy. you must have horrible friends who lie to you.
    No one in your life was truthful enough to beg you not to release such a sorry excuse for music.
    Pls stick to acting and modelling.

    April 3, 2009 at 6:47 am

    LOL at people’s comments… Please don’t be harsh on Mr Iyke. That said, I must confess that after playing this song a couple of times and tuning out Jim Iyke’s voice/rap/whatever it is he’s saying, the song is pretty good.

    I can tune into and relax to a Jim Iyke movie character–the braggadocio, the dress sense and all that, but I cannot find myself relaxing to a song by Jim Iyke. I think he lost his calling there.

    May 1, 2009 at 5:59 am

    i’ll tell you the truth. The song sucks. Jim iyke stick to what you do best and that’s acting. You’re getting better in acting, keep up with that and don’t fuck it up with this rapping thing. This song maybe good if you didn’t try to make it sound americanized. tuface, do you have to be featured in everything, oga, your music is falling. Go back to the song you did in the past such as african queen, etc. You’re getting bad.
    Jim Iyke the only positive is the chrous, it’s kinda of catchy. Everything else SUCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Am sure most of u writing this comments are people dat never encourage good things and dats why u are criticising people dat are ready to do things from there mind. Am so ashamed am a Nigerian we dont encourage ourselves if it is Tom cruise u guyz wud av said whaoh wat a lovely song but becos its jim Iyke and Tuface u are screaming like a dead dogs. Lets agreed Jim Iyke did badly in his rhymes wat we all need do is to tell him where is mistakes are so subsequently he can improve am sure most u guyz writing this comment are the most intelligent people on earth u never do mistakes u are always correct all the time infact the more u spoil people wok the God we kip shinning the light on them.

  92. JayD

    July 1, 2009 at 6:18 pm

    Seriously dude, wt’s up wt u? U say there’s a line btw fantasy & reality, bt wt’s d diff btw jim iyke, d actor & jim iyke d singer(wanna be)? “I’m d sun!” Wt a joke. More like d moon, reflecting 2face’s light.

    December 14, 2009 at 2:37 am

    hmm… what can i say? well first and foremost its all a money making strategy.. apparently nollywood is not making enough money for him anymore…or may be he is no longer the best… lol… thats why he wants to be the SUN. well we shall see how many people you can illuminate their lives through this music.
    thank God for two face and the back -up who kept the beat and the swagg
    very disconnect lyrics…..sometimes clumsy- everyone wanted to say something….
    if the talents are dying go back to school and get a degree……otherwise stick to what you have been doing..? you can still make ends meet with the so called fine boy status you have built for yourself.
