Popular Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, has indicated that he doesn’t follow any account on Instagram because he viewed the platform as a marketplace.
Speaking to media personality, Temisan Emmanuel, of Tea with Tay podcast, in an exclusive chat, which was published on Friday, Jim Iyke noted that Instagram was a ‘pseudo’ reality and people should take it as their everyday life.
He said, “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 market place. 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.”
