Listen to article

The People's Democratic Party (PDP) primaries have come and gone but star actor, James Ikechukwu Asomugha a.k.a. Jim Iyke, will not forget in a hurry what supporters of the Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, did to him. City Players gathered that Jim Iyke's fund-raising concert coincided with the PDP primaries and that almost all the hotels in the Federal Capital Territory were fully booked by the governor's supporters. Sources told City Players that when Kalu's supporters arrived at the Keera Hotel, Mararaba, Abuja, the manager told them that they would not get the number of rooms they required as another customer had earlier paid for some rooms.

The Abia State governor's supporters implored the manager to return the money already paid by the said customer and also promised to double the amount. This led to an argument between Kalu's supporters and the said customer, who turned out to be Jim Iyke. After much persuasion, the Nollywood star actor, parted with three rooms out of the five he had booked.
