Are You The One? Jim Iyke Looking For Love via New International Reality Show “Jewel for Jim”



We can’t say that we are surprised! After D’Banj’s foray into the reality show world with “Koko Mansion”, we have been on the lookout for the next Nigerian star to venture into this arena.

Nigerian superstar Jim Iyke has just announced his forthcoming reality show “Jewel for Jim“. It is basically a search for the lady that will capture his heart! The show will be based in the USA so there will be a mix of women of all nationalities vying for Jim’s affections.

Here are more details on the show received from the show’s producers:

Tabloid stories about his escapades are in volumes, leaving many to wonder what he is looking for in a woman or if he will ever find that unique woman who will melt his heart and make him entertain the thoughts of walking down the aisle. The heat is about to get turned on as Nollywood’s celebrated bachelor steps into the shores of north America and goes public with his search for this elusive “Jewel”, But maybe, just maybe a determined group of five celebrities living in different parts of the US can help find this jewel that will not only “tame the untamed”, but will also light the touch and be the new face and voice for children with “Sickle Cell Anemia”.

“Jewel for Jim” is a nationwide search for a “rare gem”, a cultural and social ambassador, a lady of substance, a role model who personifies a perfect blend of the traditional and modern mind, a great talent, a Princess fit to be soul mate to Africa’s most eligible bachelor Mr. Jim Iyke. Jewel for Jim will present and document unscripted dramatic and sometimes humorous social experiences, situations and/or events, while featuring beautiful women of all races, cultures, ethnic groups, religions and sects, struggling to excel at specific tasks and contests with the ultimate goal of winning Jim’s heart and crowned “The Jewel”.

Jewel for Jim Participation Criteria

* Must be Single
* Minimum age is 21
* Must agree to “JewelForJim” terms and conditions
* Must possess a special skill

BN heard that some major international urban networks are interested in the show so this could potentially be huge. We really hope this turns out to be more like “The Bachelor” and less like “Flavor of Love”!Your thoughts?

    BTW what is wrong with Aba made clothes anyway?She Yih

    • She Yih

      September 8, 2010 at 1:46 pm

      There’s nothing wrong with Aba-made if you are regular in 9ja (and am not been snotty) but not when you are a so-called celeb representing Nigeria internationally and apparently, one of the 50 best dressed men in Nigeria (whoever composed that list is sooo jaded btw) you def should have alot to answer to in the clothes department…..
      You said it urself Lola…he misses the mark….far too many times I might add and seriously…he cant even act to save himself…..

    Just reading the promo alone made me cringe..Africa’s most eligible bachelor. Chineke mee! With his Amerigbo accent, tacky dress sense and general ability to irritate, the only person who would marry this dude is that Afrocandy woman of “Ikebe na Money” fame. Pschewwwww.

    And at his old age he is seeking a 21 year old girl?? Some people have no shame !

    hhhmmm bring on the haters….hate hate hate, he will still make a load of cash off the show…if flava flav can have a show looking for a woman why not Jim Iyke? with all your hating most of you will still tune in!!! and at She Yih (what stupid attempt to be “cool”??!?) please Seyi, pomo lips? that’s just a playground insult… africans come in different shapes,sizes,shades…ps- get over it. I am not a fan of Jim Iyke but he should be congratulated at least he is doing something!

    • Brittle Paper

      September 9, 2010 at 2:58 am

      Oh I guess Flava Flave comes to mind when you think of Jim Ike.

    • SweetSerenity

      September 10, 2010 at 2:57 pm

      You know what, Flava Flav is most definitely NOT a good looking man, he is ghetto etc and that show was a joke BUT guess what, he is the founding member of one of the most iconic group in hip-hop history in America. He made music that spoke to rascism, poverty, police violence in America so you may down play his looks but you can NEVER down play his contribution to the history of music!

      Jim Iyke has grown as an actor, I will not take that away from him but this show is NOT a good look. He has not done any movie worth watching in a long while and this smells of a desperate attempt to call back attention to himself and MOST IMPORTANTLY, it is an attempt to wipe off the smear of bad publicity with reference to his relationships – isn’t he the one that was PUTTING DOWN Nigerian women when he was purportedly dating some “international model” from Jamaica? Isn’t he the same one for whom it was written that his Sierra Leonian lover had HIV and please before you tell me it was a badly woven rumor from the deepest darkest part of gossip hell, may I remind you that once in print, it is hard to recall back certain things?

      So abeg, make I hear word o. Listen, at least reality shows in America can pay off in spades if one plays their cards right BUT in Nigeria, what does that really get you? Even if you win some money, our society places emphasis on respect for oneself and one’s family name so you might have made some money but people will always ask how did you make that money and their nose will turn up when they hear how and you lost credibility right there and then!

      I don’t know what smart woman from a good home would want to be associated with this show or Jim Iyke for that matter, disgusting but then again, one man’s disgusting is another’s heaven lol.

    • Girlthegirl

      September 26, 2010 at 10:20 pm

      I agree with you. BTW who is this guy? His name is familiar from Nigerian movies. How did he become one of the most eligible bachelors in Nigeria (whether 1 or # 50. I hope this show only airs in Nigeria a sit will cause embarrasment for some of us living outside if the show is marketed as one of an eligible bachelor looking for love.
      Please whoever called him one of th emost eligible bachelor? Where are all our Nigerian businessmen, scholars, engineers, doctors, etc. When did acting a few Nigerian movies turn people into most eligible bachelors or bachelorettes.

      Just saying!

    September 8, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    I’m very sure this show will not be aired on American T.V, NO NIGERIAN MOVIE R SHOW HAS EVER MADE IT TO AMERICAN SCREEN!! so please don’t allow these NIGERIANS to tell u lies that their movies and show r being publicized on American screen. We all know that this show will be filmed in a rented rich Nigerian person home due to the fact in America u have to get a permit to shoot any outside activity so I’m very sure it will not be like the “Bachelor” more like a home video with low quality.

    p.s all of the girls will be Nigerian/African descendants…unless they r willing to pay Americans girls so real money to be on the show!!

    Lol… oh wow.. dis is sommin to look forward to so that we can laugh about it the following day at @omoyankee, u are mistaken dat no naija movie or show has ever made it to the american screen. About 2 yrs ago, a naija movie was shown on BET (can’t remember the name now) but Dakoja was in it along with RMD.. so yea, naija movies are making it slowly here but only the good ones.. Also only the good naija reality shows stand a chance to make it to american television.. “Jewels for Jim” however doesn’t seem to be one of them….lmbo…

    eyaaa…u guys are brutal sha. After reading all these comments, me sef dey feel super bad for the dude. Let him shine small nah haba. lol. If dbanj could, why can’t he?…dbanj ain’t the hottest there is in naija either. And who in the world just said that if 2face were to have a similar show they’d send their sister to go contest?? *sigh*…

    No matter how much we may all disagree about his acting skills, he is still a star (at least in Africa) in his own right….

    Jim is an entertainer.period. I am sure he was expecting all these reactions…and i bet also that all these people booing him will tune in to watch if the show was available in their area…

    All in all…..this is sure to bring in major ratings because while some may tune in to hate on him, some may watch to laugh, and some may watch to…..In the end; many will be watching!


    September 8, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    OMG !……..jim is popular afterall, thanks to all yah who sent in various comment….lol

    a few years ago people wont say all this shit about Jim iyke, i guess people got tired of seeing the same face in the same kind of movie over and over and they just didn’t care anymore. i guess thats why he tried music and it didn’t work, now it’s reality show.

    Advice Mr Jim if u can just reduce Ur fake fune, maybe people will like to c the Nigerian jim iyke, and not the wanabe oyibo

    Pomo lips? Apart from the star qualities of Jay Z (and maybe because of his influence in the music industry) can someone tell me whether Beyonce is blind to Jay Z’s pomo lips? Or, maybe (her) love for him is blind. And why is it Katie Price (aka Jordan) in the UK always goes on about men with “full blown” lips or what you call pomo lips. Terribly, she even did surgery to fleshen her lips and always fancies guys (white or black) with a bit of lip. I heard many white girls believe that full blown lips are more kissable – I wonder what that means – and such lips gets thinner as you get older. More kissable, may be yes, i.e. if your way of kissing is more focused on the lips; but thinner as you get older, hmm … Ask the late Abiola (may his soul rest in peace amen) and OBJ. But again, even Ashley Cole’s a bit of pomo lips was attractive to the beautiful Cheryl. But put thin or pomo lips aside, Mr Iyke is not a role model for any young man or women. Anybody dating that guy is doing herself, her family and their village the greatest disservice.

    My question is, y is it based in the states and not Nigeria, or is there another reason he wants her to be based there? I can actually imagine the rug rats that will be on the show, strippers and what not. I wish him all the best. Finally he should look closer to home , he will find the one. Akatta babes no easy o.
