Nollywood actor Jim Iyke who was always linked with one controversy or the other in the past has insisted that there is nothing people can say about him now that is capable of breaking him.
The actor revealed that he had long-ago decided to ignore whatever people think or say about him. For him now, criticism is a form of advancement and admiration.
“Who will criticize you if you are nobody? Who will criticize you if you are not making bold moves? You cannot project boldness and fearlessness without being criticized. And you can’t stand as an entity of your own without criticism. I believe the greatest people in the world have been criticized for good or bad.”
He also insisted that he needed criticisms to be the man he was today, saying if everything had gone well for him in life, he would not have grown to be a better person.
“How can I even impact others and tell them that something is wrong? I cannot even have a voice in anything. But now, I can tell anyone that this is the way to survive criticism. I can tell them they need to be deaf and blind to survive it.”
