Now this is a confirmation of what we’ve been talking about Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson.
You’ve read our side of the story about how we think Mercy is the best amidst all other Nollywood English movie actresses at the moment.
Now, Nollywood’s veteran actress, Rita Edochie, has confirmed our thoughts.
In an interview recently, Rita referred to Mercy as her role model and a true Africa Queen.
My role model is Mercy Johnson; that is my African Queen.
Of all the girls in Nollywood, she is the person I love most because she is natural to a fault.
She can fit in anything. She is over natural and I like her because she does it well anytime, any day. I give it to her.
After Mercy Johnson, Chioma Chukwuka, Ini Edo, Genevieve. You see all these girls, they are all good but of all the girls, Mercy Johnson is still the best.
Apart from being one of the best actresses around, Mercy is said to be the busiest.
Pulse.ng says the actress is presently in Asaba where she’s shooting in about five locations for different movie producers.
According to Mercy, she gets an average of 10 to 15 scripts every week and most times, the producers pay huge amounts of money to outdo one another so as to lure her to their sets.
Do we see the likes of Omotola Jalade, Genevieve Nanji, Rita Dominic, Kate Henshaw, Uche Jumbo and others going green with envy?
