When the news and the video of Nollywood superstar, Jim Iyke’s purported deliverance from demons went viral, some saw it as a gag by the actor to blow his image out of proportion, while others felt there was more to it than meet the eye. Yet, there are some who felt the actor has shot his career into oblivion but one person who doesn’t seem fazed by the development is his girlfriend, Ghanaian actress, Nadia Buari as the couple were spotted last weekend in Accra.
It would appear the actor is taking his ‘delivered’ status very seriously and keeping his itinerary not too far away from the confines of ‘Holy’ places as the report claims he was seen leaving a church after a night vigil with his girlfriend, Nadia.
Another report has hinted the lovers have already concluded plans to tie the nuptial in December this year, at least, so it would appear, since the ‘demonic spirits’ who have kept him away from marrying have been exorcised at Prophet TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations.
But one thing seems to have definitely changed about Jim, that is, his nature, which is now calmer, less asserting, and the former Sexiest Man in Nollywood is now more preoccupied with evangelising and preaching the word of God. One of his recent tweets was his way of getting back at his critics, but not the old-fashion Jim Iyke’s way, but the ‘delivered’ Jim’s way “”His mercy grants true happiness and salvation which you quest. It’s devoid of popular opinion”
