Mercy Johnson among the most famous Nollywood faces in the world- Ikechukwu Onyeka
Ikechukwu Onyeka, famous Nollywood producer, has made an informal list of the most famous ladies in Nollywood, including Ini Edo, Mama G, Omotola, Uche Jombo and Mercy Johnson.
On Mercy Johnson, he says that he has high regard for her humility and professionalism. There was an incident of professional disagreement between her and Mama G over a scene in one of his movies. Apparently, Mercy felt Mama G didn't put enough emotion into her fainting scene.
“The fall-out of that misunderstanding was played up for weeks in the press, and that created a huge tension between Mama G and Mercy Johnson. Eventually, Mercy shocked a lot of us, when she knelt down before a crowd of school kids – big fans of hers, and apologized to Mama G for all the misrepresentations that were fanned by the media. Mercy is a class act.”
