Few weeks ago a popular movie marketer, Film Mark Productions allegedly declared top Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson-Okojie, wanted over N2million movie fee.The aggrieved Marketer revealed that he paid the said sum to the actress in March, 2014, to star in his movie that kicked-off production in April, but she abandoned the production after for few days and featuring in just few scenes.
When the star actress had wanted to leave the movie set, Film Mark refused but she insisted that she wanted to make Easter meal for her husband and will return after a day or two, then she left the set, but never returned instead she jetted out to America.
Amidst the shady deal scandal, the Dumebi Star actress has sneaked into the country with her family but has chosen to maintain a low profile.
Sources close to the Kogi State born mother of two exclusively disclosed to nigeriafilms.com that Mercy has actually been in Nigeria since early December, 2014. She returned with her husband, Prince Odi Okojie and other family members.
“Mercy has been in town since last year. She celebrated all the festive periods in Nigeria; Christmas and New Year. She has a reason for keeping her return close to her heart. On the other hand Mercy is not really an ongoing person, she also has her family to care for than jumping to parties,” the source squealed.
When we probed further to know if truly the Nollywood’s sweetheart was guilty of the heavy fraud allegation pointing at her, the informant asserted that although he can’t vouch for Mercy, but he knows that the actress wouldn’t want to indulge in any kind of scandal that would dent her image.
Subsequently, fans and admirers of the super talented actress are eagerly waiting for her reactions over the scandal and as well beseech her to hit movie locations to make more interesting films for their pleasure.
It would be recalled that Mrs. Okogie took a break from acting in July 2014 and travelled to the United States of America to deliver her second child.
The actress put to bed in the early hours of Wednesday, October 15, 2014.
