    Shocking! Actor Jim Iyke Reveals Why He Dumped Nigerian Politics

    Jim Iyke

    Jim Iyke, a well-known Nollywood actor, has disclosed why he left Nigerian politics, claiming that it was “almost like selling your soul.”

    During an interview with BBC Igbo, the 44-year-old actor revealed that when he was pushed to compromise on his ideals, he backed down on his political aspirations.

    He said

    : “I tried doing politics but what I was required to compromise was almost like selling your soul. I’m principled. I decided that there are different positions you can play on a field but the end result is to score goals.

    “I decided to play my part, remaining a social critic, tell what needs to be told. It’s my advocacy. The day my people summon me to serve, then I come out. If there’s a jungle on earth, it’s Anambra politics. It’s a different game.

    “Everyone wants to lead rather than be led. Everyone has money. At the end of the day, it’s the same circle. I’m not small-minded. I know that if I foray into politics, it’s either it consumes me or I get what I want.

    “But I don’t want to be desperate or have a Godfather play me around like a puppet. I don’t want to stain myself,”
