JIM Iyke, a Nollywood actor, was all emotional as he paid a touching tribute to his ‘beloved’ recently. Iyke lost his mother to the cold hands of death on the April 1, after she suffered from an undisclosed ailment.
In a tribute, the controversial actor, described his late mother as “‘a force of nature,’ my big sis, my first wife, my confidante, my rock, my critique, my greatest fan and regal leader.”

The dull numbing ache in my heart will never be pacified by any woman alive. Not my lover, sisters nor even a daughter I may one day bear.
“The relationship of a mother and an only son is uniquely eternal and spiritual, transcending human comprehension. Mine with Gladys is even far strangely beyond that. They say, it’s a blessing if a son buries his mother and not the other way around. I’m not sure they’re entirely right. They also said, one never recovers from the loss of their mother. I hope they are right! May I never recover from the memories of your celestial love, sacrifices, warmth, your contagious laughter and merciless wit.
“Your enthusiasm for life and service of others was infectious. I’ll miss you each and every waking moment of my life. I know you’re in a better place now. I’ll carry on everything you stood for, till my last days. You came and saw and conquered. Adieu Gladys, from your boy Jim. I love you till the last breathe I take.”
