Big boyz thingz in a recent interview with Punch, Jim Iyke when asked about his love for sunglasses had this to say:
"I have about 125 pairs. My personalassistants and people who come to my house keep stealing them. Also, I have been a collector of all kinds of stuff-shoes and sneakers. I think I own about 200 pairs; it is not something to brag about, this is a form of art for me, just like the way people collect stamps. I like shoes and I collect them. I keep the ones my mother owned in the 60s and the ones my aunts owned in the 70s. I get shoes that are much branded and are limited edition. For me it is not just about fashion statement anymore, it is art."
Don't try Jim!
When asked how he spends his days, he said "I sleep around 3am every day, no matter the time zone or the country. I wake up fairly early, depending on the amount of activities I am involved in but I think I have some sort of in-built clock, I wake up at the same time every day which is 6 am. When I wake up, I pray because God is the central part of my life and I give it all to Him. My father always said the best exercise of the day is prayers. As soon as I am done with prayers, I do an exercise which is a fusion of yoga and martial arts. It is a process where the body, soul and mind have to be in sync. I do it to purge my mind and body, relieve the pressures of the day and make decisions about the kind of people I would let into my life for that day. I have not been to the hospital in over 12 years of doing the exercise."
