He made this known during a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jidonwo.

Recall that in August 2021, Jim Iyke tracked Uche down to his residence and physically confronted him for questioning the source of his wealth and labelling him a ‘ritualist’.

The fight was the hottest topic on social media at the time and netizens marked Jim Iyke as a no-go area for social media trolling.

However, some netizens argued that the fight was a publicity stunt for a movie the actor released during that period, with a similar storyline.

Well, Jim Iyke has now admitted that the fight was orchestrated for publicity and Uche was paid handsomely for it.

According to him, he had spent over 20 million on promoting the movie but it didn’t get much traction from Nigerians so he decided to tap into Nigerians’ thirst for gossip and bad news to promote the move, and it worked!

The 45-year-old actor added that he is too strategic to jeopardize the success of his film by getting into a real fight with Uche.
