Jim Iyke, a prominent actor in Nollywood, has disclosed the reasons behind his decision to seek healing for his mother at Synagogue Church Of All Nations, led by the late TB Joshua, in 2013.
During an interview with Teju Babyface that was posted on YouTube on Tuesday, the award-winning actor explained that desperation drove him to pursue healing for his mother at the church.
Tragically, his mother, Esomugha, passed away on April 1, 2014.
In January 2022, Iyke admitted that he had paid fellow actor Uche Maduagwu to assault him in a video that gained significant attention in 2021.
The incident occurred in August 2021 when Maduagwu questioned Iyke’s source of wealth, resulting in Jim Iyke physically assaulting him.
The viral video caught the public’s attention.
During an interview with Chude Jideonwo, Iyke clarified that the altercation was premeditated, and he compensated Maduagwu after they reached an agreement.
He said, “I called the man, we had an understanding, I paid very well for it, rolled out the script, called Moses in, we shot it and we’re about to release the ending of it. I’m not stupid. I will never make that kind of mistake.”
Iyke added that it was his strategy to promote his movie, Bad Comments.
