Three months after his son turned one, Nollywood actor Jim Iyke, wants another child, this time around, a girl.


The actor took to social media on Boxing Day to pen a note of prayer to God, describing it as a petition he must submit before the year ends.

“Please give me a daughter,” he pleaded and stated that he would be the “father, fathers dream of”.

Jim Iyke said he wants the public prayer to God asking for a daughter to be his “most ardent test of faith”.


The letter reads in part: “Dear Lord, I decided to quickly submit this petition before the year runs out. I’ll keep it short and straight. The last time we had this convo, King Harv showed up. My life has never been the same since. It’s being an amazing cocktail of unprecedented blessings, self-realisation, bold endeavours and forging of powerful alliances.

“Now to the matter at hand. My sister says I’m a career cynic. My Ghanaian ex says my head is too strong for love. My Nigerian and past exes say I’m amazing but Gladys took the last iota of love I have for any woman with her.

“I want a baby girl Lord. A daughter that will keep me on her permanent mumu button. I’ve done this before when King came and turned even the hardest skeptics to awestruck as I took fatherhood to the letter as naturally as fish in water.


“Please give me a daughter this time Lord. You know I’m one that never brings my private affairs to the public but I want this act of vulnerability to be my most ardent test of faith.

“I’ll be the father fathers dream of. I’ll pour my body, soul and spirit into raising her. Besides, King needs a sister to protect and love.”

The actor added that he would like his dream daughter to have the physical attributes of Shade Adu and the intelligence of Michelle Obama.

“I moved my file from the middle to the top of the stack when the LORD asks for it. A little addendum if you pls; I want her to look like Shade Adu in her teens with the brains of Michelle Obama.”
