She has paid her dues. Having appeared in uncountable films and produced a couple, delectable actress Mercy Johnson-Okojie indeed deserves some accolades.

 No wonder, she was appointed Senior Special Assistant on Entertainment, Arts and Culture to the Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello. In this interview, the mother of three sheds more light on her latest movie, The Lamb, reveals secrets of her happy marriage as well as talks about her fears and reasons she craves more kids. Enjoy it.

How then do you cope with your home front and duty as the SA to the Governor on Entertainment?

It has not been easy but I’m a home girl. There are priorities. God comes first, and then family and other things follow. Definitely, the family has to be settled before we talk about work. When I am not happy at home, I can’t function properly in whatsoever capacity. God, family and then others; it works well for me that way. As we are here right now, if I get a call from my children’s school about anything, I’ll push your recorder away and run off (laughs). CONTINUE


Kids always want mummy around, how do you cope leaving your children for days while on location?

It has not been easy, but we are in the jet age. I am a working mother. I have to work. However, like I said earlier, it’s all about scale of preference. I give everyone and everything it’s own time.

When should we expect another baby from you?


Sure! Very soon.

Are you not scared of the labour room?


I’m obsessed with children. While growing up, I always had it in mind that I’ll have four children. So, we still need one more to complete it (laughs). So we can always play football correctly, three boys, three girls.
