How My Mum Supported My Acting Career Despite My Shyness – Jim Iyke Tells It All



Iconic Nigerian actor, Jim Iyke says his mother’s belief in him went a long way in shaping him into the man he is today.
The talented movie star spoke about his introverted childhood and the massive support he received from his late mother when he was featured on the ‘Is This Seat Taken’ podcast.
The 46-year-old filmmaker said when he informed his parents he wanted to become an actor, as a teenager, his dad wasn’t in support of it, as he argued that he was “excruciatingly” shy.
Jim Iyke said his mother, however, believed in him, adding that the support he got from his mum helped him become that great actor he is now.
Adding to this, the actor said he is trying to pass the kind of friendship he shared with his mother to his children.
