Rude Shock As Mercy Johnson Insults African American Fan At Maryland’s Grocery Store

Exclusive report by Kemi Ashefon.

The location was an African store in Randallstown, Maryland, USA.

Since social distancing is also observed at the store, there weren’t too many shoppers present.

Well, a heavily pregnant Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie sauntered in.

All eyes were on her as she walked into the African food store in company with her little daughter.

“Oh my! Mercy Johnson!” a voice said among the shoppers and quickly walked up to her. A black American guy, other shoppers watched as the star-struck man told Mercy Johnson that his wife, a Nigerian, is a fan and had desired to have a photo with the Nollywood star.

According to him, since his wife was not at the store, he asked if Mercy would have him take photos with her which he would show to his wife when he got home.

“I don’t know you”, Mercy said rudely and left.

Everyone at the store felt for the guy, who was obviously embarrassed by Mercy’s behaiviour.

A Nigerian, Demola Babalola, who was one of the shoppers, disclosed to Kemi Ashefon that Mercy’s action was entirely rude and unexpected of a star.

A former journalist at PUNCH, Babalola said;

“You people should be talking to your Nollywood stars. I just ran into Mercy Johnson at one African store in Randallstown, MD about 10 minutes ago. One black American guy, apparently married to a Nigerian, asked MJ for a photograph together, she declined and talked rudely to the guy.

“I don’t know you,” she told the guy and rebuffed explanation by the guy that it was his wife who knows her. She waived the guy. The black guy was muttering over the way she treated him all through while we were at the check-out counter. Not that she must agree to having to take photos with him but there are polite ways to reject such without being seen to be rude. She’s a star for God’s sake!

“Thank God I’m not the type that asked for photographs she could have been rude to me too. I was elated to see her because she’s one of my favorite Nigerian actresses. Maybe she’s touchy because she appears to be pregnant. She was in company with her little girl.”

Is pregnancy enough reason to behave like that?

Well, we wish Mercy Johnson a safe delivery as she prepares to deliver her fourth baby in Donald Trump’s country during this Coronavirus pandemic

    You cant blame her, nowadays people do things which are unquestionable. He could be a good person or a bad person. He could take the picture with her and all you know, could use photoshop to change images. Nowadays bad people don’t leave room for good people to be known or noticed.
    But let me ask is it all American stars who take pictures with people they meet? NO

      You are wrong Ama, American celebrity will either go out with security to avoid much people asking for such and at the same time the still do it anyways,
      Mercy don’t need behave that way, atleast the guy explain to her the his own wife is her fan, so just imagine what will be like if the wife see her hubby with mercy in the pic? Or hear this story of how Mercy react to her hubby

    IF I EVER COME across any celebrity—whether from Africa or not—I would just keep my cool, take a glance, and continue doing what I was doing. I am a reserved person by default, and would not want any unnecessary embarrassment from some people who think they are some deity.

    I won’t lie but am also a fan of Mercy Johnson.But, honestly speaking after reading this article I felt sad cuz I know how badly I also want to have a one on one conversation with MJ.Though,we don’t know the actual reason why she did this but I think it was too bad and it was also not expect from a star to treat her fans like that,I just pray I will be able to go through with this heart breaking news and still be a faithful fan.
    Right now am not happy with her at all…

    l can not believe people are still crazy about going abroad to do a sensitive thing as delivery when lots of people are thinking of coming home to avoid the cov19 pandemic. Nigerians and their craziness about abroad even in its terrible state.we need to set our priorities straight.

    She should not have been rude but showed some class. I’m American and love Bollywood movies. I hope they are kind and use security to avoid fans.

    Really she was just trying to shop in peace. I would have done the same. No one wants to be bothered.
