jim iyke quit acting

Nollywood actor Jim Iyke has opened up on why he has become a scarce face on the big screen.

The Nollywood hunk told Weekend Vibes in a recent chat that he took time off acting to create job opportunities for the Nigerian youths because Nollywood producers can’t afford to pay him.

His words:

“I have not been away; it’s producers who cannot afford me. So, I know my worth. But I have been busy creating opportunities and jobs for Nigerian youths so that we all can live better lives.”
