Actor Jim Iyke Explains The Kinds Of Friends He Likes To Make...

Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke has revealed why he struggles with making friends.
He disclosed that he can’t be friends with people who hold grudges.

“We don’t hang around emotions. We don’t have time for it. That’s why I can’t be friends with everybody,” he said.
“I need somebody that won’t be hung up on my last act. I’m too transitional for it. My propensity for growth is at an alacrity that you can’t keep up with.
“Who I was yesterday is different from who I am today. So it’s not everybody that can keep up with that. I need somebody that I won’t call for 10 weeks and he is not in his feelings.
“There’s a time I didn’t call him for 4 months and he didn’t call me either. We don’t have to. But when we call, it’s value.
“I don’t want a friend that I am in your life every day. It’s never going to work because I will never show up for your kid’s birthday.
“You find me wanting at your anniversary. When you have certain issues I might not be the one to reach. But I tell you, when you call me and I sense that it’s not even a function of what you tell me, I sense that you need me, I’m going to move every mountain. So you decide the kind of friends you want.”

  1. Na was o
    Podcasts hiarandia
    E be like say me sef go start my own o
    Ali B, how far? You don start ya own?

    1. LoL. Make my money for mic and ringlight set finish fes. Nigerians go hear am! 😂

  2. Na wa o...
    Confusing. But Jim Iyke has really done well for himself

  3. This kind of people are very misunderstood,we have one in my family,can go the extra mile and you keep wondering what changed.
    we have come to accept him for who he is.

  4. Nonsense! Just be friends with yourself. Nobody has time for that. A lot of pple ghost u then expect so much when they need you.

  5. Cling ons need not apply. I like space

  6. Jimmy can't do wrong in my eyes, yes that's how i love him..
    Badboy for life!!
    But i can't cope with this type of friendship 🙆

  7. Jimmy u might be wrong. You friends in time of needs, esp in your lows

  8. Different strokes for different folks. Not me, I can't cope with this kind of friendship

  9. Jim Iyk is one of my favorites actors in Nollywood. He's very talented in delivering his roles both in drama and commedy. He does his job so well. I remember a movie he acted with Genny then l can't remember the title of that movie, in that movie he was acting like a corper.and he makes everything looks so real, Kai Jim is a great actor but this his talk no balance. E no follow.

    Licious babe

  10. Is he Aries? This is one of their attributes

  11. Friendship thrives on good communication, not calling your friends for months is not too good, although I know we all have that one friend that vibe well despite non communication for many months.
    When called, please do the best you can, don't wait to sense when they will be in need because it might not be needed then.
    We learn daily, we grow, but we all have that core that made others love us/befriend us...if you outgrow all your old friends you might end up being surrounded by strangers who only know your present.

    1. This is so me. Maybe its an Aries trait. I don't call and when I need or you truly need me I'm there. I hold no grudges and I don't get angry. Most that know me have come to accept me like that. I've tried to change but truly its not working.

    2. Same here. Also ♈.

  12. Ok

    Whatever that rocks your Boat
