Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, has explained why his appearance in movies have recently been limited. He explained that movie producers can no longer afford his fees.
According to thenet.ng, Jim said: “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 however said he would still act if he got the right pay.
On views that most actors nowadays lacked creativity and talent, Iyke said, “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”.
