The purported proposal of Nigerian actor, Jim Iyke and his Ghanaian actress girlfriend, Nadia Buari, has yet again kicked off some controversies as many are of the view that it was just one of the episodes in his reality show, Jim Iyke Unscripted.
The first sign that the proposal was not real was uncovered when it emerged that it was done four months ago and in the midst of such speculations, Nadia had denied being engaged to Jim. She even said that she bought the ring she wore, by herself.
Many of her country people have been berating Jim, saying the hot head actor is only using her for popularity ratings as well as traffic for his TV show. According to a very popular Ghanaian entertainment site, GhanaCelebrities.com;
The whole engagement on camera and being part of Jim Iyke’s unpopular reality TV Show is an attempt to score some ratings and get us talking - which we are obviously doing.
If anything at all, we should remember that somewhere last year, Jim’s girlfriend from Jamaica, Kentura Hamilton, came out to announce that everything she did for the reality TV, including an episode of her screaming, were all staged and not real. Jim begged that she did that!
GhanaCelebrities.Com also stated that they spoke to some industry sources close to Nadia Buari and interestingly, they were told that the engagement was a commercial contract between Nadia Buari and Jim Iyke just for the TV show, and to help the dying show get some ratings.
There is nothing real or true in that engagement. Remember, the two are actors and beyond that, Nadia Buari’s mother is a smart business woman who will not allow Jim Iyke to swindle Nadia like he did to others.
So it was an agreement for camera which Nadia Buari has been paid to be part of.
Another top Ghanaian entertainment site, OMGGhana.com reported that;
The Nadia Buari we know is not a Kim Kardashian to be desperate for a TV proposal but since it happened. We can bet she owns some sort of right to the show now and she is ready to do all it takes to make the show work.
When many of her fans called to congratulate her, Nadia Buari took to Twitter to subtly dispel the rumour that she was actually engaged, claiming that the engagement was not real and was made just for TV.

So what do you make of this whole shenanigan?
