|Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by DON FASZY(m): 12:47pm On Jun 16, 2009|
Superstar Jim Iyke was in Katsina State on May 27th 2009 working on a project called "Day 27" . The Boy's Cot actor signed a 3-day contract to play the lead character in the movie directed by Charles Awurum and co-produced by Chidi Chidioke and Amaka Oleka.
The production quickly run into logistics problems which delayed the completion date of the shooting. Tied up in other commitments, Jim Iyke, who had been paid upfront N 600,000 for his 3-day work, was ready to leave the project after 3 days as contracted even though he hadn't completed his part of the contract. Panic set in and the production offered Iyke extra payment to stick with the project that would have fallen apart without his participation.
The Nollywood bad boy turned a deaf ear to their supplications and also refused to refund the money he already cashed in since he hadn't completed his part. He called a taxi and loaded his luggage in, ready to leave.
Amaka Olenka, who's married to a close advisor to the Kastina State governor, frantically called around, asking for help to prevent Iyke from leaving. The taxi was about to leave the premises when security officers stormed the location and stopped the taxi.
Jim Iyke was dragged out of the car and ordered to stay on the project. Tempers flared and a shouting match followed. The security officers roughed him up and the actor tried to defend himself. The officers ganged up against the actor and beat him black and blue. He was dragged back on the set and forced to complete his part at gunpoint.
His many attempts to contact his representatives and lawyers didn't produce the effect he expected and he remained on the location till he had completed his contractual part.

unless Jim Iyke confirms this, i cant believe it for this simple reason: Are you saying Jim Iyke will still be able to perform excellently well as requested as requested by the script at gunpoint. I dont think so or is it not a movie shooting?
|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by kaypinchi(m): 12:12pm On Jun 17, 2009|

That is good for him. Himself and Ini Edo are used to that poo. They are always too rigid and are arrogant.

I hope the blockbuster movie will be interesting cos I can't imagine an actor acting under duress. Unfortunately the duress part is not in the script

I love this story. I hope its true. Saw this guy at the new local airport with 2 gurls, my friend said "what up", and the way he replied was shyt. I walked up to him and said he is full of himself, that is he coz hez with ladies or just the nollywood hype, the dude could not say anything.

|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by audio: 1:32pm On Jun 17, 2009|
While we continue support barbarism, Nigeria will never progress. If he was contracted for 3 days work and the 3 days were up, he is free to leave. That should be a lesson to the producers to be better organized. Can you see this same situation happening on any hollywood set? I definitley think not.
Any personal dislike of Jim Iyke is not the issue here. I'm not crazy about the guy either, but i think it is very bad that something like this can still happen in this day and age, only in Naija.
|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by brein: 1:35pm On Jun 17, 2009|
Where and how do they expect the dude to continue the role after he'd been beaten black and blue, i mean his face bruises and all,
|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by ogazi007(m): 1:37pm On Jun 17, 2009|

|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by izeek(m): 1:43pm On Jun 17, 2009|
as much asi wud wanna say that serves him right,
he did nothing absolutely wrong.
his cntract stated 3days and he saw it through.
if the ppl wanted him to keep up his part, then they shud extend the contract shikena.
why all this unproffessional ways of doing bussiness self in naija?
|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by rasputinn(m): 1:49pm On Jun 17, 2009|
Why did you edit the report,you appear to want to sway public sympathy Jim's way,you needn't cut out some of Jim's actions to achieve that,not that he deserved to be beaten up as that is most uncivilised and barbaric
I think the producers took that barbaric step knowing that Jim would already be condemned in the court of public opinion as a result of his not-so-good reputation.

doesnt Jim have a lawyer who could file a lawsuit against these uncivilised boneless chicken savages? why put their chimpanzee filfthy hands on another helpless nigerian fella? the very fact that they ressorted in physical abuse and mauling of the defenseless poor Jim Iyke is proof that they knew that their contract was honored by the guy. nigerians should rally behind Jim Iyke and boycott these fake Bottom producers who brutalised him beyond the contract. he was even held hostage at gunpoint? how traumatising? did he receve medical and physchological attention afterwards?
|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by kooke: 2:14pm On Jun 17, 2009|
I was under the impression that Jim Iyke has some body guards, where were they when he was given the beaten of his life? I think its high time he should consider hiring a third hand for emergencies like this.
|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by favcom(m): 2:26pm On Jun 17, 2009|
Because of greed?
|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by chiejik(f): 2:34pm On Jun 17, 2009|
i can see alot of people hate jim iyke which is unfair
|Re: Jim Iyke Beaten Blue Black On Set In Katsina by kokoye(m): 2:40pm On Jun 17, 2009|
I'm sure his pretty face was untouched - they only dealt with him below in areas that'll be covered with costumes.
I pity him . . . but that's tghe way of life in Naija so he should've expected it. I'm sure he's brushed people before as well.
