Mercy Johnson Biography

Mercy Johnson Okojie is a Nigerian actress and is currently one of the most recognizable faces in the film industry in the country.

Her foray into the movie industry started after failing her Joint admissions And Matriculations Board (JAMB) examination. But, determined not to be idle, she had auditioned for a movie role.

She got the role, performed brilliantly, and has continued on a winning streak since.

Age

Born in 1984, Mercy John is currently 37 years old. She celebrated her birthday days ago.

Children

Mercy John is the mother of four children – three daughters and a son (Purity Ozioma Okojie, Divine-Mercy Ehinomen Okojie, Henry Ozioma Okojie, Angel Onosetale Okojie).

She surprised many when she had three kids within three years. At the time, some social media denizens had criticized her as desperate to cement her relationship with her Benin prince husband.

To the critics of her birth journey, she had nothing but the middle finger. She would rather they get on with their lives. In fact, after her third child and the criticisms that followed from some quarters, she had spat in the face of her critics, letting them know she was going to have baby number four. And she did.

Net Worth

Mercy Johnson is one of the top earners in Nigeria’s movie industry. You wouldn’t catch her boasting about her net worth, though.

Although she would comment on her net worth, fans have been doing the commenting. Conservative estimates put her net worth at $1 million. That’s over a hundred million naira – not bad for a lady who takes her art seriously, a lady who popped at a movie location and acted barely weeks after giving birth.

Husband

2021 marks ten years since Mercy Johnson got married to Odianosen Okojie, a prince of the Bini in Nigeria. The wedding was a four-day event that began on the 25th and ended on the 28th of August 2011.

Prince Odianosen Okojie is a hotelier, politician, auto dealer, and Henod Group of Companies chairman.

When he shared his plans to marry the actress back in 2011, a lady called Lovely Okojie had alerted the press that she was still married to the man and has two kids for him.

Her plan to stop the wedding and reclaim her “dear husband” was unsuccessful, and the prince married Mercy amid tight security.

Mercy Johnson and her man have not one but several houses. Given how successful they are, one shouldn’t be surprised. Back in2013, her husband had bought a six-bedroom mansion for her in Ajah, a highbrow area of Lagos or her.

Movies

With appearances in over 200 movies, Mercy Johnson is clearly one of the most in-demand actresses in at the moment – a testament to her artistic appeal. Among the flicks, she had featured in are The Maid, Women in Power, Into Temptation, Under the Sky, Lost to Lust, Sweet Mama, Painful World, and Married to the Enemy.

Others are The Scorpion God, Look Into My Eyes, She is My Sister, Desperate Ladies, The Gods Are Wise, Strength to Strength, Forest of Promises, Heat of the Moment, End of Mirror of Life, Baby Oku In America, and Mmasi: The Arrogant Preacher
