Nollywood Producers can’t afford me- Jim Iyke

Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke is very expensive.

He has disclosed that movie producers can no longer afford his fees, so it will be hard to see him staring in a Nollywood film.

“I have not been away, it is the 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,” he said during an interview with NET TV.

Jim Iyke made it known also that his inspiration to act will be determined only by the right pay.

The film star also disputed the lack of creativity claims among the present Nollywood stars.

“It is wrong to say today’s artists lack productivity and talent. When the likes of Ramsey Nuoah, Emeka Ike and I were acting, that was what was said about us as well, but I did not let it bother me. We learnt on the job and we got better with time. So, I think they will also get better with time,” he suggested.
