Jim Iyke: Why I don’t follow anyone on Instagram


Jim Iyke reveals why he doesn’t follow anyone on Instagram.

Jim Iyke, a veteran actor, recently revealed that he doesn’t follow any Instagram accounts because he considers the media to be a marketplace.

The controversial actor revealed this in an interview with Temisan Emmanuel, host of the “Tea with Tay” podcast, which was released on Friday.

A quick look at the actor’s Instagram page reveals that he has 2.4 million followers but doesn’t follow any accounts.

In a recent interview, Jim Iyke described the popular social media app as a “pseudo” reality that should be treated as such.

In his words;

“From day one I got on social media, I didn’t want to follow anybody.

I wanted to establish the fact that this is a marketplace. It’s a pseudo reality there. It’s not what people want to take as their everyday life. 

If you see any of my posts, it’s tailored. I don’t post about my family. I don’t post my pleasures. There are certain things I think should be left for one to experience alone.

There are three tiers of life that I live. I live the private life, the public life, and the secret life.

Social media is public life. If I want to make a statement in style, if I want to make a statement on my ideology and principles, if I want to market something, or if I want to set a new understanding on my opinion of something, that is where I should be.

If I’m having a good time with people that don’t mind being on that platform,I go there”

The actor further said that he’s shielding his children from social media so that their behaviors would not be scrutinized or observed in public.

He said;

“I have kids that run the mall at every part of the world and no one will say, ‘I know that face’.”

“I didn’t want to follow anyone on social media from the beginning.” I needed to make it clear that this is a marketplace. It’s a fictitious reality. “
