Nollywood’s highest paid actress Mercy Johnson Okojie shares some new facts about herself in a recent interview with weekly magazine – City People.
She opens up about being absolutely scared of failure, being un-bothered by criticism/haters and why she does not socialize much like a lot of her Nollywood colleagues in the industry.
On her biggest phobia she says,
Success is hard. It’s never easy. It takes more than luck to make the right decisions, and the right choices. A lot of people have actually been acting before me, but they are just nowhere close. It’s not because I am better, it’s grace. One of my biggest phobias was failure. I had a phobia for it
No tears for the haters…Mercy wants you to know
I had gone through all of that, growing up, I had cried all the tears I need to cry growing up. Nobody can make me go back now. So it’s like hate all you want, I am moving. So you are just going to stay there and keep talking and I am ahead of you. It’s more or less like you know me, I don’t know you
She was a loner as a child which is why she hardly socializes now
I didn’t grow up in an environment that was very sociable, I didn’t have friends. Since I got into the industry I can say I am one person that you can hardly meet in a club house or at party. Even events, it’s really hard to see me there because that’s just not me.
MJ is currently in the United States where she will be giving birth to her second child any day now.
