"I don’t want anyone to label me a Nollywood actor" - Jim Iyke

Jim Iyke in an interview with Pulse.Ng, revealed the movie roles he would love to play, and why people should stop calling him a "Nollywood Actor".

Speaking with Pulse, Jim Iyke said;
“I have never played a gay role and I have no desire of playing anything like that. I have had a long career, a lot of movies, I have pretty much stretched everything that there is.
“But is there a role out there [that I haven’t played]? I can’t think of any off the top of my head.”
He, however, revealed the real-life character he would love to interpret on screen.
“It’s a man with the depth of Denzel [Washington.] Denzel is not just an actor, that’s how I don’t want to be perceived as well.
“That’s why I’m always going off and on to go educate myself some more, elevate my mind some more, invest in things that are outside the confines, fail in many more things and succeed as well as I go.”
He further stated that he doesn’t want to be tagged ‘a Nollywood actor,” sharing his reasons.
“I don’t want anyone to label me a Nollywood actor. I want to be a business man, I want to be a philanthropist, I want to help people in my lifetime, leave my signature in the stamps of time.
I want people to wake up and say ‘hey, if you didn’t do this, this wouldn’t haven’t happened. And I want to say the same of people.”
