"I almost sold my soul"- Actor Jim Iyke reveals the reason why he left Nigerian Politics

I almost sold my sold- Actor Jim Iyke reveals the reason why he left Nigerian Politics
Nigerian Actor, Jim Iyke has revealed the reason why he dumped Nigerian Politics.

According to him, He said that he almost sold his soul all in the name of politics.

During a chat with BBC Igbo, He said;

“I tried doing politics but what I was required to compromise was almost like selling your soul. I’m principled. I decided that there are different positions you can play on a field but the end result is to score goals.

“I decided to play my part, remaining a social critic, tell what needs to be told. It’s my advocacy. The day my people summon me to serve, then I come out. If there’s a jungle on earth, it’s Anambra politics. It’s a different game.

“Everyone wants to lead rather than be led. Everyone has money. At the end of the day, it’s the same circle. I’m not small-minded. I know that if I foray into politics, it’s either it consumes me or I get what I want.

“But I don’t want to be desperate or have a Godfather play me around like a puppet. I don’t want to stain myself,”
