This month, star actress Mercy Johnson resumes work; she is back on location with director and producer, Elvis Chucks. This is MJ’s first job after giving birth in December.
‘I want to say thank you to the fans, friends, colleagues and producers who were there for me. Many of them proved to be friends on and off work. Many adjusted their schedules for me and sent in their greetings during the child dedication. I resumed work this week with grateful heart and understanding that I am here because God through the help of people made it possible. Or how could I explain the overwhelming votes I got at AMVCA despite being away and inactive on social media? How could I explain the numbers of producers and scripts waiting for my return? How could I explain the overwhelming love and gifts while I was away? I am very grateful and here to say a big thank you to everyone who played a role and those who as much as had good wishes in their hearts. Thank you and God bless you’.
In the past months of Mercy’s ‘absence’ she gave birth to her first child, Purity, moved into a new mansion with her husband, Prince and won the Best Actress in comedy at the maiden edition of Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA).
Work-wise, she has continued to generate interest as many producers and a couple of corporate organization are in discussion with her for movies and other business. She’s returning on the heels of the record set by Dumebi, the dirty girl, the enviable record of being the highest selling.
She started acting in 2003 with The Maid. She’s been praised to be one of the few method actors around by respected movie director, Lancelot Odua Imasuen.
