Why I Did Not Mourn My Mother When She Died- Jim Iyke Spits It All

Fresh-faced Nigerian actor and filmmaker, Jim Iyke has spoken to media personality Chude Jidenowo detailing why he could not grieve his mother when she died despite the mutual love they shared.

Jim whose real name is  James Ikechukwu also spoke fondly about his three children and why he has not been successful with marriage, having divorced twice already.

In his words; “I have failed many times. I have had failed marriages, I have three beautiful kids, so how are you gonna know cos of my strategic pattern. Even people that live in my space don’t know…Even my sisters call to hear from me, even my PAs don’t know stuffs. I keep everyone on their toes with my level of unpredictability, I hate being figured out…once you figure me out, I have nothing else to offer, I refuse to be figured out and tamed”.

On his failed marriage and the connection he had with his mother, he said: “I suffered a loss. My mum died. She was my best friend and business strategist. …she is so smart that it is ridiculous…it was a relationship based on friendship and mutual respect….she always had the right words and advise to me….I lost all that when she died, there was a spirituality and connection that I lost after she died….we were so close that it took them 72 hours to inform me of her death…I am a product of love, my parents were so in love with each other so her death shattered my dad too….their kind of relationship opened my eyes to the kind of marriage I wanted too.
