Jim Iyke dismisses conversion rumor


By Aminu Kutama

Leading Nollywood star, Jim Iyke has dispelled rumors making the rounds on the social media that he has converted to Islam.

The actor debunked the rumors on his verified Instagram page on Thursday, saying the author of the rumor produced the story out of his photos from a movie he recently made in Ghana.

Iyke, who was visibly upset by the rumor, addressed his followers in a recorded video he posted on the Social Media platform.

“Hello everyone I felt it is just necessary to address a certain rumour that has been making the rounds lately. Usually, I don’t pay attention to these rumours because it’s not my cup of tea. But certain lines must not be crossed,” he said.

Speaking further, the actor said “I made a month ago in Ghana about a religious fanatic. Someone took the pictures from that movie and it ended up in the hands of a rather unscrupulous blogger. While I have no issues with any religion, I have no intention, not now or ever to convert my faith.”

He, however, took it further by threatening to take the necessary action on the rumor peddler.

“I don’t understand why anyone would want to peddle these rumours but there are certain lines you should not cross. So whoever is peddling these rumours should get it together. We are too busy for this,” he stressed.
