Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson Okojie has revealed why she stopped playing romantic roles in Nollywood movies.
Mercy who has been appionted as the Senior Special Assistant on Entertainment, Arts and Culture to Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, told The Sun that she stopped her romantic roles because her husband doesn’t like it.
“My husband doesn’t watch my movies. But I think he has heard about the clown I am in movies (laughter). Nevertheless, I adore him for being my backbone and supporter of my career.
”Though, for the past eight years of our relationship, I haven’t featured in romantic roles. This is because he doesn’t like it and I can’t do it for all the money in the world.” She said.
She further stated that she must get consent from her husband before she does anything.
“I operate on a scale of preference regarding my service to God, family and job. My family has to be comfortable before discussing my job. I must appreciate my husband, Prince Odianosen Okojie, for giving me his consent when my appointment as SSA to governor came, knowing fully well the sacrifices and adaptations he will have to put up with.”
