Mercy Johnson became one of the most sought-after actresses with masterful interpretation of movie roles upon making her debut on our screens in early 2000s, with her tasteful and at times provocative dressing being a major part of her artistry.
However, since getting married to Prince Odianosen Okojie in 2011, a lot has changed about the screen diva’s carriage as she now goes about her duties with more maturity and grace.
After taking a break to focus on maternal duties, Mercy has now returned to work, with features in movies such as Professor Johnbull and From Free Town.
Here are the ways marriage has impacted the 35-year-old Kogi native.
1. Mercy the loving wife
No one dotes on her husband as much as Mercy does, as she never lets any opportunity pass without showering her husband of five years with unending praises and adulation.
2. Mercy the exemplary mother
Having stated how much it means to her to leave a good blueprint for her three children (Purity, Henry and Angel), while taking lessons from her wildly youthful past, Mercy is insistent on raising her children in the right way.
3. Mercy the responsible African woman
The actress has also shown she is willing to compromise her once-glamorous lifestyle for a more responsible public image by turning down specific roles. She was once quoted as saying, ‘I stopped taking up such roles in 2009 when I realised we were getting serious and headed for marriage.’ So far, she has kept true to her words.
4. Mercy the religious, God-fearing woman
Also part of Mercy’s noticeable reform is her more religious inclination. She never holds back on her social media in giving thanks to God for her successful journey thus far.
Indeed, one can say marriage has had positive effects on Mercy Johnson.
