Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie has said that because age is already telling on her, she can no longer act semi-nude scenes in Nigerian movies.
Mercy Johnson, in a recent interview with Goldmyne TV at the premiere of her directorial debut movie, Legend of Inikpi, said that it is not possible anymore for her to act nude because she is now mature.
She added that she now considers her husband, her family, and kids in her life decisions.
“When I do that (acting semi nude now), what would the younger girls do? When you grow past a certain level, you try to go ahead and do better. For me, you don’t need people to tell you what’s right or wrong. Age is telling on me. I’ve grown past that level, I’m answerable to too many people: my husband, my kids.
“I hate to embarrass them in any way. My daughter is growing. She gets hold of my phone sometimes, begins to google, and goes like, ‘Mum, my friends said…’ and they’re very inquisitive. I don’t think it’s (playing unclad scenes) something I want to do to make my kids question me in any way or have something in their minds that they want to ask and they can’t.”
