He’s Out & About! What to Expect from Jim Iyke’s Brand New Reality TV Series “Unscripted”





Since I heard Jim Iyke was about to premiere his new reality TV show, I’ve gotten all sorts of excited. For one, the controversial movie star is well… controversial, so imagine how much drama there would be behind the scenes of all the controversy. And, we’ll also get to see the luxury lifestyle of a male Nigerian movie star, just how we’ve got to see Omotola‘s.

The actor announced his reality TV show, “Unscripted” is slated to debut very soon on Thursday, April 18, 2013 via his Instagram account when he posted the above photo with the caption: “#jimiykeunscripted starts April 18 ….. African Magic”

Our enthusiasm has gotten us doing all sorts of research, to find out what we might be seeing on the show. Recently, Jim Iyke has had some issues with fake social media accounts…

…as well as fake bank account scams.

But, that’s not all that’s been up with the Nigerian A-list actor. James Ikechukwu Esomugha has been travelling a lot for photo shoots, club appearances, weddings and charity events and trust that BN‘s got all the photos. From hanging with Cynthia Bailey of the Real Housewives of Atlanta to dirt bike riding in Oman, Jim Iyke has been all over.

I wonder if we’ll get to see all this on his new TV show, but for now, you know what to do – Check on it!

      @Ms lala…Jim Iyke is an A-list actor …so STOP TRIPPING! yes he is controversial but it cannot be denied that Jim is in the same category as Ramsey, Desmond etc.
      On another note, this dude sure got style…I think he would have done great in the fashion industry than music….can’t wait to see this show!

      Pls take a seat! Whether u like him or not doesn’t negate the FACT that dude has paid his dues in the industry and is one of the most famous actors around. He is a great actor and yes, he is on the same level as other A-listers like Ramsey, Genevieve, and co.

  2. mmmmh

    April 10, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    1. The show is gonna rock… Jim is too wild and crazy to disappoint!
    2. Why are all these slim ladies rocking mini pot belly? LOL. Seems like they don chop too much McDonald or chicken wings.
    3. The way Nadia was holding onto Jim Iyke in the limo…. e go wound oooo hehe.

    Jisox! Some of those laydee’s outfits from the “Partying with fans in Atlanta” photographs are kinda scandalous!!… but I don hear plenty tori about the “kilon popping” lifestyle in Atl, so e dey like say this be the usual sights ’round those parts …

      I am from and in Atlanta and these photos you see is the bottom of the barrel APUSKELEKE RAZZ UNCLASSY bunch of girls and guys (epitome of the RAZZ QUEEN BETTY BEE – BONSU type of girls and guys). Not everybody dress like that in ATL – TRUST (every city has a razz bunch and in atl – this is it). #Bushmeats –

      April 10, 2013 at 10:03 pm

      Oh, then I glad to hear it, thanks for correcting my erroneous perception in that case 🙂 Plus, I maybe shouldn’t rely too much on the “Real housewives of ATL” …

    warri dis? looks like a carrot in his pant hehehe!

    Again if you can watch Reality shows from other countries (as me no dey watch. The drama in my life is enough show) please don’t complain about the ones from your country…the least you can do is watch and allow them make some money off you at least you subscribe to DSTV to watch The Kardasians, tia and tamera e.t.c

    Jimmy setting it on fire come April 18th…like Omosexy did…
    Cynthia Bailey Thomas is so free spirited if i can recall Omotola did her Birthday party in Atlanta at Cynthia Bailey’s Husbands restaurant….Peter Thomas and she took a picture with both Cynthia and Thomas…that’s cool and now i see Jimmy in a pic with Cynthia Bailey…that means a part of #Unscripted was shoot in Peters Restaurant in Atlanta……Bravo James Ikechukwu…..Make your moves High

    This post is already making me wonder whats going to be on this show! how exciting. I ll predict now that this man could possibly have the best reality show out of all d ones on or about to broadcast. His personal life alone is drama and if its all captured that alone is meat for the show

    Jim Iyke started out as a great actor, but the controversies and music kind of derailed that…

    • Say What?

      April 11, 2013 at 8:17 am

      True word. This guy could have been the greatest actor ever to come from Nigeria but cutting corners is his undoing. From Germany to London to Cameroon to Abuja

    Jim Iyke is the perfect example of a take a man out of the village but you cannot take the village out of him #thatisall and he eerily resembles my ex which makes me dislike him even more they even have the same first name initials eeeeeek!

    • Nma

      April 10, 2013 at 7:01 pm

      U have issues, which clearly has nothing to do with Jim! Quit projecting and go get help!

    fact 1: Jim looks good.
    fact 2: those Atl fans dont look soo good.
    fact 3: this show’s gonna pack more bite than Omotola’s.

    who wants to bet a zinger burger on it??

    i dreamed romancing this dude, i hope is not part of his reality show.

  31. Dee

    April 11, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    The show will be a success just going by the comments here. Hate him or love him he is a character that gets a reaction out of you and that is the stuff reality shows are made of.

    he haz paid his prize in d industry yea

  33. omo

    April 12, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    @ Peachy_mo, LWKMD. ur comment of ” … carrot in his pants” is priceless. Went back to take a good look, couldn’t help but agree with u. Hehehehe!

  34. omo

    April 12, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    @mmmmh, lol @ the slim ladies rocking mini pot belly… Saw it too & was really in shock of my life. so………. not cute at all. Infact dem really chop mcdonalds ( maybe Big MAC), chicken wings & it looks to me like dem drink big size Mickey D’s soda on top. Hehehehe.
    Everytime i see jim Iyke he reminds me of someone with ADHD. ( Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Infact anytime i & my hubby watches his movies, we always refer 2 him as the ADHD dude. LOL… Still like him a bit though, nothing against his hustle except he’s just too hyper 4 me. But dt doesn’t take away from the fact dt this dude (jim Iyke) has really paid his dues in d industry. All d best 2 him!
