Jim Iyke has admitted that his much-publicized fight with Uche Maduagwu was orchestrated for publicity.
The actor made this known during an interview with Chude Jideonwo.
Months ago, Uche Maduagwu questioned Jim Iyke’s source of wealth and Jim tracked Uche down and attacked him for the insult on social media.
However, because Jim Iyke had released a movie with a similar storyline, many concluded it was a stunt to promote his movie.
Jim has now admitted that it was indeed a stunt.
He said he and his team came up with the plan and Uche Maduagwu was contacted and paid well for it.
The actor said he is too “strategic” to “jeopardize” the success of his film by actually getting into a real fight with Uche Maduagwu.
He explained that he understands the thirst Nigerians have for gossip and bad news so he decided to tap into that to promote his movie.
Watch him speak in the video below.
