How I Wasted Six Years Of My Life With Jim Iyke – Estranged Fiancee, Kenturah Hamilton cries out

Keturah Hamilton
She sounded absolutely distraught, and utterly disconsolate. Her usual
exuberance, the bonhomie which she wears like a badge of honor was
missing both in her voice and in her demeanor. She was inconsolable,
pained and emotionally devastated. She had every reason to feel that
way. For over six years, she had given her all to a romance that had
been celebrated, touted and written about as one that was made in
heaven. For six years, they had projected the image of a blissfully
happy couple that could do no wrong.
Her boyfriend of six years – the one that is famously referred to as the
‘Nollywood bad boy’ – Jim Iyke, has finally acted out his moniker and
it is not pretty at all.
“These days, I ask God: Why has thou forsaken me? How can a man with
whom we had gone through the highs and the lows – a man who had
professed so much undying love for me over the past six years just walk
away like that? I don’t know what happened and I wish I could put a
finger on it.” Keturah had told me, sounding sad and exasperated.

Their romance was strong, and Jim had spoken severally of plans to walk
down the aisle with her. He had told me a number of times that in
Keturah, he had found “a perfect mate – someone who was “sexy,
intellectually curious, exotic and edgy.” Keturah was known all over the
Nollywood firmament as Jim Iyke’s main girlfriend – a wife in waiting. They had traveled the world together, and she had stood by
him through most of the scandals that has continued to dog his
professional and private life. Not
even when another woman claimed to have dated Jim Iyke and later accused
him of battering her and a business deal gone awry which was amplified
in the media did she
wince or threaten to end the affair.
Put simply, Keturah Hamilton – the Jamaican born actress, model and
business woman was the partner tailor-made for Jim Iyke. She had
accepted and tolerated all of his foibles, issues and challenges and was
determined to stick with him through thick and thin. And then…Just
when we thought the wedding invitations will soon be mailed out; just
when we thought the loving duo had reached a point of no return in their
relationship, the news came out that the story book romance had
ruptured, that the center of the relationship could no longer hold. Jim
Iyke had ‘bailed’ out of the affair and appeared to have acted out some
of the elements in their joint reality show “Jim Iyke Unscripted”. He
was said to have ended their six year old affair in a most emotionally
callous way. He simply walked away “without even a phone call” as a
tearful Keturah had told me. “He took away six years of memories, of
support of love and all that I did for him – just like that. How mean
and callous can one get?”
Depressed and emotionally forlorn, Keturah had told me how Jim used and
dumped her “Jim was supposed to come to New York and stay for six
months, during which time, he would go to an acting school:

here in New York and then we would move to Los Angeles and get married
and pursue our acting dreams. I was looking forward to that with
eagerness and then he just walked away” she began to sob.

Asked what could have been the reason for such a change of heart,
Keturah said “we had problems like normal lovers do, but we always
resolved them amicably. I know there was something Jim asked me to do,
which I didn’t want to do right away, but that should not have made him
to do what he did.” Pressed to reveal what it was that Jim wanted him to
do, she said it was personal.

Keturah said she feels used and dumped “I played along in the reality
show as if I truly was a jealous and crazy lover. It was an act, but now
I feel as if Jim set me up. He is a wicked man. I stood by him through
all his troubles and tribulations. I helped bring him to the limelight
when the light of his career was dimming. He is an ingrate and I leave
him to God.”
I just can’t
believe Jim would be this ungrateful – after all I have done for
him. I have not been able to accept this and I am truly in a state of
shock. If Jim could treat me the way he did, after six years of being
there for him, supporting him, encouraging him in all that he did, then I
wish Nadia the best of luck.”

Jim according to sources is living in Nadia’s house in Ghana and is
constantly seen driving her car on the streets of Accra the Ghanaian
capital.

Meanwhile, Keturah appears to have moved on with her life. “I am a
strong woman and I am moving ahead with my life. God cannot give you
that which He will not provide you the platform to stand and deal
with. I wish the best in his life.”

To buttress her newly single status, Keturah was seen recently having
fun and laughing the night away at 9ja Restaurant in Brooklyn during a
surprise party that was thrown for top actress – Stella Damasus to
mark her birthday. Stella is currently vacationing in New York with her kids.

Efforts to reach Jim Iyke for his own side of the story was abortive as
his telephone lines were all switched off. But we will strive to get his
own side of the story next edition.
