We all thought Nadia Buari and Jim Iyke were actually once an ‘item’ but it appears for those of us who believed that, Jim once dated the beautiful Nadia, we believed in a lie.
Yes, the expensive diamond ring, the proposal, the traveling around the world all of that that drama were all FAKE–Just for TV
The Nigerian actor has said in a new interview with Punchng.com that, he never dated Nadia Buari and the impression they created in the eyes of the public was just to get followership for his reality show, Jim lyke Unscripted.
Jim Iyke made the revelation, when the host of the interview, asked him if he was cool with Nadia Buari.
He responded saying; “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.”
“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.”
Jim Ikye also said he stopped his reality show because his ex-girlfriend had a son for him then and he wanted to spend quality time with his son in his formative year. He said he had to choose between his son and traveling around the world while filming his reality, but he had to made that tough decision by canceling the show
