August 28 is the birthday of Mercy Johnson-Okojie. Hip Hip Hip Hurray!

Mercy Johnson is a popular Nollywood actress who is simply known as MJ for short. She was born August 28, 1984 in Lagos. Her zodiac sign is Virgo; therefore we are going to refer to MJ as a Virgo Queen in this post, and also share with you on NMN - some personalities of a Virgo Woman.

Mercy Johnson made her acting debut in the movie "THE MAID", in which she played the role of a possessed house help. Her performance in the movie shot her into the limelight and she has acted in over 70 movies ever since.

Mercy Johnson is a native of Okene in Kogi state, and comes from a family of seven children.

According to Mercy Johnson in one of her interviews, she revealed that she got into the Nigerian movie industry (Nollywood) after failing her University entrance examinations. She revealed that growing up was tough and had difficulties paying her school fees most of the time. She also reveal that she worked as a housemaid to survive before finding huge success in Nollywood.

Today, Mercy Johnson's name echoes in every corner of the Nigerian entertainment industry. Her movies are watched not only in Nigeria, but in other African countries and African diaspora communities in the U.S and UK.

Mercy Johnson was one of the inaugural winners at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards 2013 for her role in the comedy film "Dumebi the Dirty Girl".

On August 27, 2011, Mercy Johnson got married to Prince Odianosen Okojie in Lagos state, Nigeria. Her womb was blessed with a child, and on December 30, 2012, Mercy Johnson delivered a baby girl in the United States whom they named Ozioma 'Purity' Okojie, and the whole Nollywood Community celebrated her bundle of joy. 

As if her nickname was 'blessing', Mercy Johnson's womb was blessed again and she gave birth to another child on October 15, 2014; this time a boy who they named Henry Okojie. Now, Purity has a baby brother to play and grow with; what a wonderful blessing.

This month of August 2015, it has been revealed that Mercy Johnson-Okojie is pregnant again with baby no. 3! If Mercy Johnson is asked to count her blessings, be rest assured she can't count them all. But so far we know for sure that, Mercy Johnson started from the bottom, now she's here — from nothing to something, from rags to riches, and still remains humble to her supportive fans. And still looking sexy as ever, like in the picture below.
