Actor, Jim Iyke Reveals Reason For Not Having Many Friends 

By Oluwarantimi Oludase 

Popular Nigerian Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke has opened up on the reasons for him not being friends with many people.

The actor shed light on his issue of friendship on the ‘Deep Dive’ podcast hosted by Teju Babyface, where he bluntly stated that he cannot make friends with people who do not forgive or forget easily.

Jim Iyke further revealed that he is conscious about growth and so many people cannot keep up with it, and as a result he can't be friends with such people.

The actor also stated that his kind of friends are those that if he doesn't call for a long time or check up, they wouldn't be bothered, just like if he is in their shoes too. He believes that friendship should not be based on emotions, as he can't be pleasing everyone everytime.

Part of the actor's words are below;
“We don’t hang around emotions. We don’t have time for it. That’s why I can’t be friends with everybody.”

“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.”
