“I want to give my son a fair chance to decide what he wants out of life” – Jim Iyke
Nollywood actor Jim Iyke is fed up of answering questions about when he will be getting married.
In this exclusive chat with Pulse TV, the actor said his marital status which has become a point of discussion online should not be so. He also talked about his son, Harvis Chidubem Iyke, who was born on September 1, 2015, by his then girlfriend from Lithuania, Dana Kinduryte.
The single father of one reveals that when the time comes for him to tie the knot, he would let everyone in on it.
“I just knew you guys were going to ask this question but this is what I find interesting, people have asked why do I wear a wedding band and my very humble response is the way I have operated in the last few years, I decide what I want people to know not the other way round. When you come to my Instagram page, people wonder why I don’t put up my son’s picture often but I said no, it doesn’t work that way, my son is another entity, a human being, I chose this path, he didn’t. What if he grows up and doesn’t want to be in the limelight like me, I want to give him a fair chance to decide what he wants out of life without intrusion or scrutiny, not me putting him in the life I have chosen”.
“There are three parts of everyone’s life you must try to adhere to survive and longevity, the public, the private and secret. I woke up one day and at the point of birth, I shared with the world that I am having a son but nobody knew for nine months or that I’m having the son with even a Caucasian woman, so that is how I live my life. I could have been married for three years and nobody knows, the day I am good at ready, I will share, the day I am also good to say I am not married, I will share and until then, keep guessing”.
