Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu has said that he revived the acting career of his colleague, Jim Iyke.
Maduagwu made the claim in a recent episode of the Trends and Bants podcast.
Speaking on his 2021 stunt with Jim Iyke, Maduagwu insisted that before the stunt, his colleague was absent from the movie space.
Naija News recalls that Jim Iyke made headlines in 2021 after a video of him beating Maduagwu for questioning the source of his wealth on social media, went viral.
However, Maduagwu disclosed in 2022 that the video was a stunt to promote Jim Iyke’s comeback movie, and that he received N4.8 million for the stunt.
Addressing the stunt once more, Maduagwu asserted that no one had heard about Jim Iyke before the skit.
He said, “The truth is I revived Jim Iyke’s career with that stunt. Before the skit, were you hearing about Jim Iyke everywhere? I revived his acting career.”
