Mercy Johnson is Nigeria’s busiest actress in Nigeria, it has been reported.

According to a report by Nigeria’s Yes International Magazine, the Kogi-State-born movie star, is also one of the richest actresses in the country, pocketing between N1.5m and N2m per script

Mercy is said to be in such high demand that movie producers queue up to secure her services, sometimes paying her upfront.

“The situation has been like that for some time now. Even when she was pregnant, she was still working non-stop, including shooting a movie in the United States of America with her bulging tummy.

As a matter of fact, the producers were so desperate that they started writing scripts to align with her pregnancy”, Yes Magazine quoted a source as saying.

Among Mercy’s latest works are: Obioma The Slave Girl, Sleeping Walker, Heart of A Twin 1 & 2, Mud of Hardship, Dumebi and Bitterleaf Cyhtia, Others are Daniella, First Experience, Endless Agony, Immaculate Heart, Painful Soul, Tears of Madness, Weeping Kingdom, Troubled King, and Baby Oku in America.

The rest are Dumebi in School, Somma The Local Champion, Ebute The Only Girl, Leave My Tears 1 & 2, Mary The Hunter, Cry of A Widow, Voice of A Mother.

Do you think Mercy is the best actress in Nollywood?
