Our celebrity crush of the week is the gorgeous, humble, Nollyhood Actress, wife and mother, Mercy Johnson Okojie.
Few days ago, Nollywood and almost everyone in Nigeria celebrated her birthday with her. She’s one celebrity who has proven that humility is the key to success. While other celebrities may not give cognisance to their fans, and humble beginnings, Mercy Johnson appreciates her fans and their consistent support and she never fails to show it. This is why we appreciate and acknowledge her simplicity.
She drew her acting inspiration after watching Genevieve Nnaji, who was then, her role model. Her first movie in the industry was ‘The Maid’ which brought her into limelight.
She’s a wife, mother, an ambassador for entertainment in her humble state, Kogi, friend and a star who never fails to remember that she once had a humble beginning before she became famous. She’s happily married to Prince Odi Okojie, whom she never fails to gush about.
Mercy Johnson is currently organising a youth talent hunt (GYB) in Kogi State, where youths with acting talents have been given the platform to showcase what is stored up in them.
Nollywood is really lucky to have such a great and unique talent like her. We celebrate her now and always. Thumbs up mama purity.
