‘I STOPPED MUSIC ENTIRELY BECAUSE I REALIZED I’M THE WORST RAPPER EVER’- Jim Iyke Confesses

Nigeran actor and businessman, Jim Iyke has said that he has stopped doing music because he realized he was the worst rapper ever.

Jim admitted that he shouldn’t have done music in the first place since he didn’t have the talent for singing, however, he said that he enjoyed the experience.

Jim Iyke said;

“I think it was a coming of age situation that time. I woke up one day, I had just started this business then and it was doing well and I was working back to back. I think I got upgraded to a second black belt that time, something happened and I just decided I can do anything with my life.

So I jumped into music and you know what? That was a humbling experience. Cuz at the end of the day, I discovered that I was probably the worst rapper ever.

But I enjoyed the experience. I don’t take myself seriously like that, people shouldn’t. People that take themselves seriously never get ahead so I like to do stuff and fail. In failure, there is success.

I understand my boundaries, I understand where I shouldn’t go. But I also understand that there is a business in there, big business. So I didn’t go to hire people to do it, I was in that studio, I was distributing my stuff.

I probably cut a bigger check than big musicians then so the business was done. I made money from that business even if it’s the worst album of the decade.

I now understand that Untamed is something I’d love to revisit as a businessman. I’m a far better-evolved businessman than then. What I was doing then was run totally by passion and self-gratification.

What I’m going to do now is strictly for commercial purposes. Obviously as a better capitalist, as a better businessman, I’m most likely to succeed now using people that are truly gifted in this and not doing the P-Diddy thing of trying to put myself out there in front of every album and messing it all up.

So there’s no bad experience in anything you do in life, none at all. There is a lesson to be learned.”

LIBYA ISSUES ARREST WARRANT FOR GADDAFI’S SON, SAIF AL-ISLAM GADDAFI OVER SUSPECTED TIES TO RUSSIAN MERCENARIES

Prosecutors in Libya have issued an arrest warrant for Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, over suspected ties to Russian mercenaries.

A BBC World Service investigation has revealed links between the shadowy Wagner group’s activities in Libya and war crimes committed against Libyan citizens.

Russian fighters first appeared in Libya in 2019 when they joined the forces of a rebel general, Khalifa Haftar, in attacking the UN-backed government in the capital Tripoli. The conflict ended in a ceasefire in October 2020.

The Wagner group was first identified in 2014 when it was backing pro-Russian separatists in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Since then, it has been involved in regions including Syria, Mozambique, Sudan, and the Central African Republic.

The order for Saif al-Islam Gaddafi’s arrest was circulated internally to Libyan security bodies by prosecutor Mohammed Gharouda on 5 August, but was only made public after the BBC’s investigation was broadcast.

Before the 2011 uprising, he was believed by some to represent the hope for gradual reform in Libya, which had been ruled by his father Muammar since 1969.

A fluent English speaker who studied at the prestigious London School of Economics, he was long seen as one of the most influential people in the country and a likely successor to his father.

However, once anti-government protests broke out in Libya in early 2011, Gaddafi joined the state’s bloody crackdown on protesters.

The rest of his family were eventually killed or fled the country. Gaddafi, meanwhile, was captured by rebels in late 2011 and taken to the city of Zintan, to the southwest of Tripoli. He was freed by the militia holding him six years later.

During his detention, he was sentenced to death in absentia by a court in Tripoli over the killing of protesters in 2011.

He is also wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity committed during the crackdown.

Although he has not been seen in public in years, Gaddafi gave an interview to the New York Times in July, in which he spoke of his plans to return to politics.

According to sources in Tripoli, he is likely to still be hiding in Zintan.
