Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke , has stated that movie producers can no longer afford his fees and that is why he is no longer seen in many films these days .
According to thenet .ng , the Nollywood lover boy said , “I have not been away , it is the producers who cannot afford me . So , I know my worth . But I have been busy creating opportunities and jobs for Nigerian youths so that we all can live better lives ,” he said .
He added that he always interpreted his roles professionally and would still act if he got the right pay .
Speaking on the notion that the present crop of actors lacks creativity and talent , Iyke said , “It is wrong to say today ’s artists lack productivity and talent . When the likes of Ramsey Nuoah , Emeka Ike and I were acting , that was what was said about us as well, but I did not let it bother me . We learnt on the job and we got better with time . So , I think they will also get better with time, ” he noted.
