Popular Nollywood actor, James Ikechukwu Esomugha, better known as Jim Iyke has opened up on the mistakes he made at the early stage of his career.
According to him, at the initial stage of his career he was ignorant on how to handle fame and did a little bit too much that earned him a bad reputation.
Iyke who made this revelation in an interview with Sunday Scoop said,
“One cannot make a difference in anything in life if one is not open to criticism. At first, don’t forget we were not schooled about what to expect as regards being famous and handling fame. We did not understand what it meant. We did a little bit too much that earned us a bad reputation. I could not conduct myself with the best decorum in those days. As one gets older, one understands oneself, one’s pattern, the people around one, and the responsibility that has been entrusted unto one. It is no small gift to influence people. One owes the world a certain responsibility whether one likes it or not. We refused our responsibility along the way but once one embraces it, things would become easy. That is what I do these days. It is about my businesses, family, and mental health.
