Most eligible bachelors on parade (1) – Jim Iyke


ALL married men were once bachelors.  As sweet as bachelorhood is, there will be a time to quit this group.  It becomes worrisome when a man refuses to leave bachelorhood.  Such are classified as chronic bachelors. ENCOMIUM Weekly presents some eligible bachelors…

Jim Iyke - Canada (5)Born James Ikechukwu Asomugha to Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Asomugha, Jim Iyke, as he is fondly called is the only son of his parents.  He has seven sisters.  Despite the fact that he is the only son of his parents, Jim has refused to give them a grandchild.  Rumour has it that he fathered a 11 year-old son.  Notoriously arrogant, the Nollywood fine guy is the toast of spinsters.  Handsome, rich, smooth and a super star who loves to dress well, his absence in Nollywood has not changed the mind of spinsters who have been throwing paternity and sometimes marriage claims at him.

Jim once said, “I am looking for a tall, pretty, exotic and supremely intelligent lady.  A woman who would compliment and reinforce my intellectually curious mind, someone who would add and not subtract.”

Over a decade now, the search is still on.  He has been romantically linked with a handful of Nollywood beautiful actresses, Rita Dominic, Steph Nora, who confessed that she wanted him back after their romance crashed.  He was speculated to have dated Ini Edo too.  Fans thought his search had ended when his relationship with Ghanaian Nadia Buhari was all over the social media.  He was also linked to a Liberian lady, Kehirah Hamilton.  The actor didn’t mince words sometime back when he said ladies are responsible for his single status.  He once wore a shirt which boldly stated, “Shame on you girls, I am still a bachelor.”
