Nollywood actress and brand influencer Mercy Johnson Okojie has disclosed the reason why she stopped acting in romantic scenes.
Mercy Johnson has been in the movie industry for years and has been consistent in her career. She is one of the actresses that charms the heart of her fans.
The 35-year-old mother of four disclosed this when speaking with Goldmyne following the premiere of her movie ‘Legend of Inikpi‘. According to her, as she’s growing, she realized that there are certain things she needs to stop; adding that there are many people she is answerable to.
“When I do that, what would the younger girls do? When you grow past a certain level, you try to go ahead and do better. For me, you don’t need people to tell you what’s right or wrong,” she said.
“Age is telling on me. I’ve grown past that level, I’m answerable to too many people: my husband and my kids. I hate to embarrass them in any way. My daughter is growing.
“She gets hold of my phone sometimes, begins to google, and goes like, ‘Mum, my friends said…’ And they’re very inquisitive.
“I don’t think it’s (playing nude scenes) something I want to do to make my kids question me in any way or have something in their mind that they want to ask and they can’t.
“My sense of maturity is better, my judgments are better. Some of the errors I made in the past are things that I wouldn’t do now. Some choices I made back then I wouldn’t make now.”
