Jim Iyke is presently in Ghana and when he was asked by Giovani Caleb on TV3’s Showbiz 360 to share his opinion about Shatta Wale’s infamous outburst against Nigerians, he passed an intriguing response.
The fresh-faced Nollywood veteran emphasised that Shatta Wale is entitled to his own opinion about Nigerians in the entertainment industry. Speaking further, Jim said he does not have a problem with Shatta Wale’s opinions as long as they do not interfere with the relationship they have built over the years as friends.
He said aside Shatta Wale being a personal friend, the artiste also supports him in everything he does. “Shatta actually supports everything I do, so I don’t know, I mean the man is entitled to his opinion as long as it doesn’t rob of my personal relationship with him”, he said.
He further added;
“It’s not in my place to determine what people say or how they react with, maybe his intention wasn’t bad, when he said it, it’s people’s reaction that determines, people react to things in a different way, you could say something bad and I would see a major good in it, I will just chalk it down, it could be your opinion and you are entitled to it”, said.
“The fact that I disagree with someone’s opinion does not mean I should dislike his personality”, he added.
