A few days ago, Maduagwu had taken to social media to call out Iyke on grounds that he lives an expensive lifestyle in Lagos.
Questioning Iyke’s source of wealth, Maduagwu stated that he heard the fellow actor doesn’t buy expensive clothes in Nigeria but has them imported from abroad.
He wrote, mostly in Pidgin English, “Please, nobody should beg me on this matter because I have already made up my mind on this issue. Is Jim Iyke the only one in Nollywood?
Look at the expensive lifestyle e dey live up and down in Lagos and Abuja. Someone told me e no dey buy expensive clothes from Naija again, e now import the most expensive ones abroad. Please, what is his source of wealth again?
Any day we meet or see, I go use my Abuja connection to beg EFCC boss to invite am, we never recover from what Hushpuppi do us, now this one is changing expensive cars up and down like Hushpuppi of the movie industry.
“Even if dem pay me ten million naira to enter movie location with am, if e no tell us his source of wealth I go refuse.”
The post may have prompted Iyke to confront Maduagwu to the point that he was held back by people from fully engaging in a fistfight with him as seen in the trending video.
During the altercation, Maduagwu could be heard saying, “I will sue you,” after his shirt was dragged by Iyke whom he warned, saying, “EFCC will arrest you.”
