Popular Nigerian actor and businessman, Jim Iyke has revealed that his viral fight with controversial actor, Uche Maduagwu was orchestrated by him with the intention of sell his latest movie.
The Nollywood star made the revelation in a recent interview with media personality, and journalist, Chude Jideonwo.
Recall that in August 2021, a video of Jim Iyke attacking Maduagwu went viral. Maduagwu had questioned the source of his wealth in a video on social media, so he tracked the critic down to his studio where the confrontation took place.
However, Jim Iyke in an interview, revealed that he made an arrangement with Uche, to shoot the video with him to promote his movie ‘‘Bad Comments” which was released in 2021.
He said that he knew the video would be a huge publicity for the movie because Nigerians have a penchant for loving gossip and controversy.
The movie star added that the video generated the required result for the film, which it had not gotten despite the fact that 20 million was pumped into its production and promotion.
