Jim Iyke Says That Brawl With Uche Maduagwu Was Staged 

The movie actor says that the stunt with Maduagwu raised more awareness than the N25 million he spent to promote his film.

Jim Iyke, a Nollywood actor, has claimed that his brawl with colleague Uche Maduagwu was pre-planned.

 The actor and Maduagwu had a near-free-for-all brawl in 2021.

During an interview with Chude Jideonwo on his show #WithChude, the movie actor revealed this.

According to the actor, he had no intention of becoming embroiled in a nasty public brawl with another actor.

The stunt was for his film ‘Bad Comments,’ which was released at the time.

“It was orchestrated. I wanted them to paint a picture of what it is like in the social media ecosystem. I can orchestrate anything and you would perceive it. It is about perception,” he said.

The movie actor said that everything was meticulously planned, scripted, and executed for the film he was promoting at the time.

“That would show you that, that world is so real. There is nothing that exists in that world. I called the man, we had an understanding, paid very well for it, wrote the script, called Moses in and we shot it,” he revealed.

“I’m about to release the ending of it. I cannot be that stupid. I can never make that mistake. I even called my sister the day before we shot it and said it would backfire and she said no it won’t.”

Iyke said that he had previously spent twenty-five million naira on publicity for the film, but that it had failed to get the desired effects until the now-famous video.
