Nollywood bad boy, Jim Iyke who was briefly in the country last week, is sure to be waging a cold war against the Nigerian press again.
Iyke, spotted at the Ozone Cinemas, in Yaba, before he returned to America, where he graced the press-preview of Joy Dickson’s forthcoming movie “ Between Queens and Kings” declined granting interviews to the newsmen after the preview elapsed.
He hurriedly left the cinema hall to avoid the newsmen who were laying in wait for him, but the producer of the movie, Dickson would not let him disappear like that, as she ran after, telling him to “behave yourself.”
When HVP, and some crew members of a television station approached him for a chat, he declared, saying “ sorry, I don’t talk to the press anymore.” He wouldn’t listen to any entreat as he has made up his mind to blanket the media in Nigeria.
Jim, who only few months ago temporarily relocated to America, where he is currently supervising his on-going “Jewel for Jim” reality show, flew into the country last week to grace the preview. He returned to America the following day.
In the recent past, the gangster actor has been a victim of bad press. He once lashed out on reports that he has a Sierra Leonean Girlfriend that has tested HIV positive.
There was also reports of him fathering a white baby boy after pictures of him carrying a white boy surfaced on the internet. Jim has since denied the reports and has threatened court action against any such publications.
