Jim Iyke shares the Untold Truth – on $48,000 Ring to Nadia, his Ex & the Deliverance | Watch



Jim Iyke & Emma Emerson - June 2014 - Jim Iyke is totally unscripted.

Last month, BN Movies & TV presented the teaser for Jim Iyke’s exclusive 90 minutes sit down with Golden Icons titled “Truth be Told“. If you missed it, read it here.

Now the first part of the interview has been unveiled for our viewing pleasure. As expected, the Nollywood actor, singer and fashion designer keeps the conversation interesting from start to finish.

Jim candidly speaks on his engagement to Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari, the T.B. Joshua deliverance, cheating reports and the much publicised break-up with his ex.

Jim Iyke is a trendsetter and in true Jim style, he can attest to that. The actor made headlines for wearing a short suit to the debut GIAMA ceremony as well as the debut edition of AMVCA.

On the bold move, he says “I think everything I do if it’s…if my blood is not pumping, if the adrenaline is not pushing me, if my testosterone is not going right, I will not do it.”

He then launches into the concept of design and how the designer said he didn’t want to be associated with it.

“I know everybody is going to come out there with tuxedos, come out there in their Versaces, I wanted an untamed, untamed design, that was just completely peculiar with me and he said he wanted to be completely dissociated from it.” he said.

Reality TV Show – Jim Iyke Unscripted
Believe it or not, Jim Iyke’s reality show garners over 15 million viewers every week according to the star.

His ex claims they broke up because of his anger issues, so who is the real Jim? “I am not trying to get into anybody’s good books, I am not trying to get into anybody’s bad books” he states.

And the only person that could really understand him was his late mother, and “I dare say my sisters.”

Was it real or a simply of a publicity stunt?

Jim filmed the proposal to his Ghanaian hottie. He planned a vacation, they visited four cities – Frankfurt, Barcelona, Zurich and Madrid.

He proposed with a 6-carat diamond sparkler, which cost him $48,000.

On the crazy reports, he jokes that “I think for us to get massive hits on this reality show, let me buy this ring, when I am done, we can go pawn it back, and I will get my money back.”

Break Up with Keturah Hamilton, Cheating & T.B. Joshua Deliverance Jim Iyke & Keturah Hamilton - June 2014 - After their split, Keturah made headlines every other week, revealing details about their relationship.

“I didn’t say one word, awful. I didn’t say one word, not in defense of myself, not against her. So now I’ll tell you why. I spent six (6) years with an amazing woman. Six years. There is nothing she does, that will offend me to say anything bad about her.” he says.

He did however say “It didn’t go well, but we lived well…I owe her, the fact that my history will not be complete without her.”

Speaking on the deliverance at T.B. Joshua’s church, he says normal people walk into the church and fall, nobody sees it as extraordinary but when you are a star, it becomes a big deal.

And on reports that he was given N15million for deliverance, “That’s not a bad amount or something spiritual happened.”, leaving it for us to decide.

Did Nadia make me go for the deliverance, “That is probably one of the dumbest  bulls**t, I have  ever heard in my life.” he says laughing.

The rest of the interview, – Part 5 to 7, where he talks about the loss of his mother, his business and the AGN will be released later this month. So stay tuned.
