    no offense. but Jim Iyke is Trash, he should stick to acting and his phony phoney that he picked up watching American movies. Folks here in the U.S can’t stand him for nothing. We would take Desmond Elliot any day over this waste of space…………

    thankfully i can now partly recover from that awful “WHO AM A” thing he pulled out of his trick bag a few months ago. He’s still got his bad-boy swagger i see …

    haha is this setup supposed to be his closet…. if yes the recession must have hit him hard cuz his clothes r on sale… id rather not think no.

    Then why is that guy a prop in the picture… so unnnecessary especially cuz he doesnt complement it..

    ah ah, you have not heard that he is marrying one jamo girl, keturah hamilton? he says she’s an “international model” and “actress.” abeg, just youtube the girl and see the very very nasty nasty “interview” she was supposed to be conducting with some local rapper. she was one film crazy like a fox or crazy as a fox where she show all her business to the world, it was like watching soft porn and that na dey woman jim say no nigerian woman can even stand next to sef talkless of talk to abeg LMAORTFL! i will admit that from One Dollar to today, he has really changed as per his acting thing even though all that his phorming is still irritating. on a personal level, he is too arrogant and his ego is getting out of hand which unfortunately will lead to his pitfall.

    I read the entire interview over at He’s always struck me as unnecessarily arrogant and verbose but I have to admit that this interview softened my view of him…well, a little, anyway. It definitely appears that his arrogance is a cover-up for some insecurities, and I think we can all relate to that in one little way or another.

    Anyway, he made excellent points about AMAA, especially when he talked about the ridiculousness of channeling so much money into bringing an acclaimed ‘overseas’ star over for the awards as opposed to focusing on the homegrown talent. Plus, he cracked me up at the end of the interview when he exclaimed, “Let’s eat!!”

    Insightful interview.

    Kinda hot….

    I guess Halle is a whore too since she showed her putu to the world or Rene Russo in Thomas Crown Affair or anyother woman who has filmed “Sex Scenes in a movie”. I don’t particularly like the guy myself(Although I must admit i’ve seen one or two movies in the last year where it seems he has improved upon his acting craft) but we know nothing about the girl or the relationship between the two of them. So lets hold off on the assumptions and name calling for now.

    June 11, 2009 at 9:28 pm

    nice shots. I love the styling for the jacket in particular and what appears to be an Hermes tie and briefcase.

    I do however think that the jacket and shirt might be a little thight. Looks like if made the wrong move it could rip. LOL.

    Can someone tell me how to expand the article excepts so i can read the article. I’ve clicked and it only expands the embedded item minimally.

    June 12, 2009 at 4:54 am

    I agree with Stephanie. Some of the pics are not very flattering. I never really thought he was all that cute. Apparently though he is getting married soon to a lady from Jamaica so… congrats to him!

    June 12, 2009 at 6:20 am

    Why can’t alotta females stand Jim Iyke? I mean i understand most of his movie roles can be quite irritating but the hatred for him seems unbearable.

    June 14, 2009 at 2:53 pm

    Why trashing the guy like this? Infact i do not find anything offensive about his acting…that’s why it’s called acting, doesn’t mean it’s his true personality. looking good jim.

  30. Ajibola João

    June 15, 2009 at 3:42 am

    But that accent (or assent as lots of Nigerians say) makes him really funny. Come on, he’s a good actor.

  32. dmoe

    June 16, 2009 at 4:50 pm

    I think he looks great…his acting may be a different issue though. Too much of a stereotype. However, he is pretty hot when he gets a haircut!

    people,come on we re just talking about a persons character in a film,dont see anything wrong with jim iyk,though he s not my typ but he s a very good actor so far and when it comes to high fashion down here in europe i think he s one of the best naija actors thats cute.his styles and choices are mega chill and stop hating for God is per his choice of woman,i think he s right cos naija babes are 2 focused on money,we need 2 change that ,its disgusting so allow the young man

    June 18, 2009 at 4:46 am

    I love Nollywood movies! And this is coming from someone who is African American and born and raised in the South. They are entertaining and the rawness always captures me. I JUST bought a four-part movie with this dude and it was amazing! Loved it! Keep up the rawness, the newness, and the different film perspective Nollywood!

    December 11, 2010 at 4:53 pm

    I DON NOT find this man attractive AT ALL. Maybe if he smiled genuinely he’d look better. Beadie eyes, funny teeth and the worst part is the lips. I love thick lips but he aint no LLCoolJ, thats for sure….all he does is point the corners of his lips downwards which is an ugly gesture on most folks, but particularly on him.
    As for his acting, he’ll get a 3 out of 10. i am tryin very hard to watch one of his movies (that i only picked because of Mercy and Jackie) but he is disgusting me with his facial gestures and the friggin accent!!!!! Ohhhh!!!!!! how that accent pisses me off. Why doesnt the writers, producers and directors do something about that, or is it that they dont care because Africans themselves dont care. Are Africans too ignorant to realise that Americans sound nothing like that. Or are they ashamed of their own accents, which by the way is loved and admired by some Americans, Europeans and Caribbean people. If we wanted to hear Americans we’d go to the cinema for a Tom Cruise flick, we buy African movies to experience what we unfortunately cannot in our real lives: Mother Africa. So its a shame that u’ve cheapened your craft to be like Americans when Americans want to see u for yourselves.
