Mercy Johnson was brought to tears 3 years ago when Genevieve Nnaji graced her wedding ceremony. The actress also dedicated her first AMVCA win to Genevieve Nnaji.
In a recent interview with City People Magazine, the actress speaks on her admiration for Genevieve Nnaji.
According to her, “I like Genevieve like crazy. So, I started watching her movies from the onset. But I didn’t want to be Genevieve; I wanted to be a Mercy with the motivation that a Genevieve could give me.
“The first time I met her, my friend took me there; when we got to where she was, I became Nervous. I jumped into my friend’s boot. So, when she came out of the hotel, I could only hear her voice.The second time I saw her on set. When she came down and I met her, she said, Mercy I like your movies, and I started crying.I was in tears of joy. I said Aunty Genevieve, so you watch my movies. She was sort of embarrassed. Before I met her, she had already known that there was somebody who was crazily insane about her.She was really nice to me and receptive”- Mercy revealed.
