Right now on Twitter, Jim Iyke is trending for assault purposes. This time around, it is not a movie that he is making, however, reality playing out loud. As many Ghanaians may know, Jim Iyke is a talented Nigerian actor who has served the Nigerian and Ghanaian world of movies with impressive stunts and wild deviant behaviour in movies.
Whenever he is in a movie, he plays the villain role. Even in romance and love movies, he is busy fighting over someone’s girlfriend or beating some people for playing foul on his lover. Indeed, he is quite a character. However, in recent times, he had his fellow actor called Uche Maduagwu insulting him and calling him names. According to Uche, Jim Iyke is a money ritualist and deserves to be interrogated and possibly arrested. Whatever is happening between the two is quite unknown.
Apparently, Jim Iyke was invited by the Nigerian Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) for interrogation to ascertain the sources of his financial fortunes. After the visit, Jim Iyke got infuriated by the gesture. He couldn’t understand why an insult and false comment(s) from his colleague could waste his time and reputation.
Out of anger, he raged the location of Uche and decided to beat him up as he told in an interview some time ago: “I don’t know what I’ll do if I’m accused of something I didn’t do here sha. I know one thing- I won’t call a lawyer- I don’t have time. I’ll find the person and beat them till they confess.” This time around, Jim Iyke succeeded in kicking Uche in the stomach but couldn’t force a confession out of him.
This public assault got me thinking: do actors really get caught up in characters they play in movies or do their true characters make producers assign them those roles? I mean in Ghana, there are countless times John Dumelo was accused of sleeping with Yvonne Nelson or another female because he was always playing the darling lover boy in movies. Yvonne Nelson always played the role of taking multiple partners and indeed, she gave birth out of wedlock in real life- I am not judging her. Lil Win is always joking in movies. In real life, he jokes like he is still on the camera. The same story can be told of Akrobeto, Bismark the Joke and many others.
For me, I think roles in movies, that best fit certain actors and actresses, were distributed according to the real-life character of the person playing the role.
