It definitely felt like the fans of Nollywood actor James Ikechukwu Esomugha, popularly known as Jim Iyke, were beginning to get upset with the controversies that had been linked to the ‘bad boy’.
Many people may have gotten the wrong impression about this talented actor, labelling him as arrogant and violent, but from the look of things, it seems like Jim is trying his possibly best to redeem his image and bring back his reputation.
In a recent chat with a celebrity blog, Jim was quoted: “I will not disrespect you by lying about the fact that I do get into one or two brushes with people here and there. I
will not give any excuse that I have never been that kind of person. I am taking an Anger Management Session now; it was advised not only by my fiancée, but also by my agent. It is a very interesting session for my well-being. One thing about our society is that we have not accepted celebrities with their whims and caprices. An actor is allowed to be eccentric. There is a thin line between the person you see on stage and the real actor. A lot of people do not understand that. I’m not perfect and I’m taking steps to deal with my imperfections”
For Jim to have had the courage to say this, I think he deserves a second chance and believe that great achievers will accept mistakes, failures, problems and imperfections, as part of being human.
