I have 125 pairs of Sunglasses & 200 shoes/sneakers – Jim Iyke

Nollywood actor Jim Iyke recently had an interesting interview with Punch and he talked about his love for sunglasses, sneakers and of course, BFF, Nadia Buari. See excerpts below:

“I have about 125 pairs of sunglasses.
I think I own about 200 pairs of shoes and sneakers and it is not
something to brag about. I like shoes and I collect them. I get shoes
that are much branded and are limited edition. For, me it is not just about making a fashion statement anymore, it is art,”

On outfits

“I am not brand crazy. The designer labels cost a lot of money but there is a healthy competition; which is why I find the fashion market very interesting. have been to factories
that make goods for Gucci. These are people working on a smaller scale
and these are the ones I hire to make my clothes and they give me what I
want. However, I always buy what I know I would look good in.

On why he rarely acts Nollywood Movies

“When you arrive at the pinnacle of a career pursuit where else do you
go? I surmounted that apex long in my prime. I was the guy that made 38
films in a year! I had created the work-machine image and inevitably
also made myself socially redundant. I couldn’t glean at the moment of
my decision till late what else that world had for me. It was a vicious
circle of constant, monotonous engagement.
“Nothing was challenging anymore. It (Nollywood) was too easy, too
perpetual, having travelled same circles and faced same obstacles. I
also earned same bracket, produced and invested
in the same suffocating projects. The secret of the constantly
progressive individual is the ability to discern when to shift focus and
reinvent even if it’s temporarily. I took all I had, the vast contacts I
had gathered, and moved into the world of business and facilitation,”

On Nadia,He says

She (Nadia) is a solid, down-to-earth woman. I’m a man that translates
variables in ways many people find incomprehensible. We have embraced
who we are and learnt to create our own world and expectations. We have
ups and downs like every other couple.
“We have our strength and weakness as well. At the end of the day,
rumours of break ups and make-ups ought to abound. It really doesn’t
matter. A relationship is a continuous work. Those that give up were
perhaps not committed enough. Those that go in for the long haul suck up
and square up to the variables life throws at them. The people that
judge harshly are obviously the ones that live far from their desired
lives. We just live the best way we know how and leave the rest to the
author and finisher of all things.”

No, I don’t think so (Laughs)..Personally, I wouldn’t want to, except God has another plan for me. Some people might disagree with me on this one, but I just feel that after the madness in the industry, I just want to go back home to sanity. You’ll just want to
go back to being cool and having your peace, rather than going back to
someone who’s also in that same madness.I was talking to someone and the
person said: “Chidinma, I don’t agree with you because I think the
person will understand you and understand that this is what you do.”...
