Popular Nigerian actor, Jim Iyke has opened up on how desperation pushed him into meeting different pastors to heal his ailing mom.
He also disclosed that he was extorted by them because he wanted his mom who is now dead to get better.
Jim Iyke recalled his interactions with the late Synagogue Church’s head, Pastor TB Joshua, and other men of God in 2013.
In 2013, Jim made headlines after a video of him utterly losing his cool in church surfaced.
During an interview with Gbadewonuola Olateju Oyelakin, also known as Teju Babyface, Jim revealed that his attendance at the church was only motivated by his strong wish for his mother’s recovery, which was fueled by a sense of desperation at the time.
“The only thing they could do was attack my personality, attack my integrity, I’ll never be desperate again in my life. Desperation was what took me there, to take my mother there, hoping that a man of God, quote and unquote would heal her.
“She lives here day and night, I still have conversations with her, she’s never left. When I’m done praying with God she is the next person, I know how many times my mum appeared to me in dreams, if she were to live, twenty TB Joshuas will not stop her”.
Jim Iyke noted that TB Joshua was not the only spiritual leader he sought out while discussing his experiences.
He claimed to have approached five or six different men of God, and he didn’t mince words about how they exploited him and stole his money.
The actor further added:
“It was her time, nobody would have made me enter that space, he wasn’t the only one I went to, I have been to five or six men of God, is it because I don’t want to mention names?? How they took money from me.”
