Nigerian actor, Jim Iyke has opened up for the first time about the reason his father sent him away from his house.
The ace actor disclosed during an interview that he was fortunate to get the support of his mother after he was chased out of home by his father for diving into acting.
According to the actor, his father wanted him to take his studies seriously but he was only interested in acting.
”I was a straight A student and my parent had already planned my life. I was about 18 and a half when I finished my first degree. The whole plan was I should get my MBA. My dad’s boss is American so he already had a setup.
“I came home one day and said; I think I really want to be an actor, it became unbearable to stay at home. One day, my dad woke up and told me that there cannot be two captains on the ship.
“It was either I take one year, go do whatever nonsense I wanted to do, come back, and then we set the course again or I leave his house. So I left but my mother started supporting and I think that is what makes mothers as unique as they are “.
