Nov 3rd, 2013 – Expensive Mercy Johnson Banned By Nollywood Movie Marketers

Mercy Johnson Banned By Nigerian Movie Marketers For Being The Highest Paid Nollywood Actress

So mama Purity has finally spoken up on her expected ban in 2014 by the association of Nigerian movie marketers for being too expensive.

The talented actress who is now the highest paid actress in Nollywood charges around 1.8 to 2 million per movie while others like Funke Akindele and Genny charge between 700 to 1.2 million naira.

The busy mother of one took to her Twitter page yesterday to blast the marketers for trying to spoil her market.

Yes she acknowledged her expensive bid however, she has advised the marketers to go for other actresses who are less expensive than her.

Hear Mercy Johnson in her own words below:

Hmmmm….most expensive…its God o Wats wrong when u keep quiet till u no wats up?no petition,no complain just fees those who can’t afford heineken should stick with ‘Kai kai’ And those who can’t afford designers should stick to ‘okirika'” #stillsippingmakunuchampagne#
Even with all d paying press to diss me, I still came dis far,take d back sit babe’s, behind me is where u belong so back off and quit tryin.”

Wait a minute why should movie marketers ban her when other actresses who are even more talented than Mercy Johnson are staying jobless.

Even Tonto Dikeh with all her shakara no fit charge this much.

In the past, Nigerian movie marketers have banned Richard Mofe Damijo, Genevieve Nnaji, Jim Iyke, Emeka Ike and Ramsey Nouah but the ban hasn’t stopped them from progressing in their acting career with the exception of Emeka Ike who was recently hit hard.

Mercy Johnson is a busy actress ooo , I hear she has been fully booked for movie projects till the end of the year.

This is another indication of the messy political game ravaging Nollywood.

Do you support this ban?

    Her ban is politically motivated
    some folks who are jealous of MJ have a hand in this
    I believe Omotola is behind all these show because Mercy Johnson has sent her packing from Nollywood

        visit dis site daily 2 read nd knw watsup, i hardly comment but will comment on dis bcuz i luv MJ, d way she interprets evry role given 2 her. d ban is unnecessary, if producers can’t afford her dey shud simply stick 2 d ones dey can pay nd like she said “dose who cn’t afford designers shud stick 2 okirika” Bigger u i pray. AMEN. Luv u wella

        supported, Mercy J no fit smell omotola back at all, she is far away from omosexy bcs she still my favorite, doing mature tins with matured people, for mercy indeed she deserved the highest paid bcs she is doing her best in acting, but d truth is that I don’t like most of her movie bcs of too much falking, kissing etc she is indeed kezire.

    Mj didn’t put a gun on their head for the price,they know her worth and what she brings to their the ban is of use because they will be back for her and this time I expects to see 2.5 million or nothing .that’s why it pays to be good in what you do.keep rocking mama purity but don’t be rude to your fans.I dey enjoy you pass.

    There ban is completely useless and will not work in Jesus name oo , far as the producer is not losing and makes their gain after all payment,she must not be ban.she will never ever live from grace to grass because is a sin and she makes us happy with her services and will never be unhappy in Jesus name.

    For my own opinion banding mercy John from nolly wood because she is too expensive is not a good decision,you people should better discus with her in a proper well to convince her with reasonable amount don to stop using her from nolly wood.

    Nollywood Movie Stars deserve better guys, seriously… its time for them to start acting worldwide. May be in some of the sopies around the world. Lets take south Africa for an example “generation soapie” lets support guys…. so i”ll say the charges does not really matters cause you guys want a perfect acting anyway. aCTING WAS NEVER EASY

      @princesaam,I totally agreed with you.Acting is not an easy job.Recently a scene from her upcoming movies was posted on the internet,where she was being dragged in a mould,dirty water,filled with loads of bacteria,can tonto be that professional?mercy j o,is such a second Genevieve,she is a genius.Mercy is good at what she does,so no amount is too small for paying her services.she is an exceptional you mama purity.iAnd as for ope ifa,am sure you wanna say u act in localwood,not nollywood,and as for you Tina,am sure your name is affecting ur brain.Tiin brain,amount to nothing.Mj hubby aids from a royal family with loads of wealth.infact he swims in it,and talking of oil and gas,he is well known there.He is an humble man,and a man of little words.Empty barren make the loudest noise.Tina think,don’t be a dullard.Bluff.

          Oluwadunni you have spoken the truth, who among these fine fine ladies can take the roles this young woman passes through? to be dragged in mud??? it wasn’t easy and we from far saw the love of what she knows how to do best in her. so guys pay her

    Mj is d bomb and wil always be. Let her be, so dat she can enjoy her God given talents. Ride on BABYOKU. Marketers go search 4 new and talented ones. Da are lots of nw and undiscovered talents out da. Get dem and start using dem b4 d get 2 Mj’s level. If u can’t offord her go 4 cheap ones like TONTO DIKE.

    she is a professional , i do not think this ban would affect her , because she can set up her own business , she is capable of being a movies director . nollywood would be a looser without her , they can never find anyone that would be like her , because she act as if it is real . i would say to you mercy , please just get on with your life and do not give a damn to all those jealous hookers . ha har haaaaaaaaa

    Banning a talented actress like MJ because of exorbitant fees will not do nollywood any good.

    Who are the marketers? and who are the producer? anyway i don’t need an answer if MJ is banned by marketers, then let her swish into production and forget the so called marketers that cannot even spell their names correctly let alone acting. MJ go into production and i promise ill market all your movies in europe. Marketers my foot.

    February 3, 2014 at 7:22 AM

    Seriously let’s stop abusing each other,people are pouring out their opinions and if u do not like it,u correct he/she’s mistakes………..anyway to my own opinion I like mj so much.she is always real,she doesn’t form big in movies,at least to me she is still the best,but come to think of it,we are in naija she shouldn’t be charging too much,actually they are not only for her but to all the actors and actresses in the movie.if they ban her who among us can beg on her behalf,banning won’t do her good..she shud just think about it and as well try to meet the demands of her movie marketers……… u mamap
