Mercy Johnson-Okojie cries out
Mercy Johnson-Okojie, a multiple award-winning actress, has claimed that her first daughter, Purity, is becoming increasingly interested in her mother’s background.
This was said by the mother of four in a recent interview with Goldmyne when explaining why she can no longer act naked or in love films.
The 38-year-old actress, who was a force to be reckoned with in the movie industry and took many movie roles regardless of how scandalous they were in her early years, said there’s a lot at stake for her now because she’s married with kids and can’t afford to play suggestive roles.
According to her, being a mother has changed her perspective about life, and she wants to live a model lifestyle for the sake of her children, adding that she regrets some decisions she took in the past.
Mercy Johnson went on to say that her 9-year-old daughter, Purity, is very curious about her mother’s history and will sometimes google her name to learn more about it.
She wrote on Social media;
“When I do that, 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 and 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 nude scenes) something I want to do to make my kids question me in any way or have something in their mind that they want to ask and they can’t.
“My sense of maturity is better, my judgments are better. Some of the errors I made in the past are things that I wouldn’t do now. Some choices I made back then I wouldn’t make now.”
