Popular Nollywood actor, James Esomugha, known as Jim Iyke has recounted the mistakes he made at the early stage of his career.

“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”.
Recall that the actor recently called out a fan who referred to him as short, after he shared a picture of himself on his Instagram page.
The actor who did not find comments funny called out his mother and sister.
