Star actress Mercy Johnson resumes work this month. She is back on location with director and producer, Elvis Chucks. This is MJ’s first job after giving birth in December.
‘I want to say thank you to the fans, friends, colleagues and producers who were there for me. Many of them proved to be friends on and off work. Many adjusted their schedules for me and sent in their greetings during the child dedication. I resumed work this week with grateful heart and understanding that I am here because God through the help of people made it possible. Or how could I explain the overwhelming votes I got at AMVCA despite been away and inactivity on social media? How could I explain the numbers of producers and scripts waiting for my return? How could I explain the overwhelming love and gifts while I was away? I am very grateful and here to say a big thank you to everyone who played a role and those who as much as had good wishes in their hearts. Thank you and God bless you’
During her ‘absence’, she gave birth to her first child, Purity, moved into a new mansion with her husband, Prince and won the Best Actress in comedy at the maiden edition of Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA).
All the while, she has remained a subject of interest as many producers and a couple of corporate organization continued to discuss movies and other businesses with her. She’s returning on the heels of the record set by the film by one of her films, Dumebi, which is one the highest selling.
She earned her first film credit in The Maid in 2003.
