Model, presenter and actress Vimbai Mutinhiri is set to scale greater heights after being linked to season two of Nollywood actor Jim Iyke’s controversial reality show “JimIyke: Unscripted”.
The show provides a glimpse into the Nigerian actor’s world as he promotes his latest movies while delving into the competitive world of men’s fashion.
Vimbai is expected to star alongside Ghanaian actress Joselyn Dumas and many observers should be trying to figure out the role the Zimbabwean celebrity would play in Iyke’s controversial production.
“Being in this production for Nollywood is extremely exciting and it was a fantastic experience. This movie is definitely a project close to my heart, and then of course Star Gist which was an answer to all my prayers,” she said.
The role is not the first time for Mutinhiri to take part in a Nollywood production since she acted in another Nigerian film titled “Finding Love” last year.
Nollywood is the biggest film industry in Africa and produces up to 500 to 1000 films a year earning about US$250 million and employing thousands of people. Vimbai has made a mark as co-host of the popular African lifestyle show Star Gist , on Africa Magic. The Herald
