Nigerian actor, James Ikechukwu Esomugha popularly known as Jim Iyke in an interview revealed that the romance report between him and Ghanaian actress, Nadia Buhari, was never true.
According to Punch, Jim Iyke said they had something they wanted to achieve with the relationship rumour, as he further disclosed that dating and even getting engaged on their reality TV show was part of the script for the show.
“Things didn’t get messy as people thought. Two people met in the entertainment industry and there was a reality show at a time that kept us together. So, we did a smart thing anybody who found himself or herself in such situation would have done. And when the entertainment was over, we moved on to our normal lives.”
“For anyone who thought anything extraordinary happened, it was a live show except that it played into our personal lives too.
I got what I wanted, which was followership and I appreciate the audience for watching. She understood what she was coming into and I understood as well. We got the mileage we both wanted and we moved on with our lives. Five years down the lane, people are still talking about it.”
