Nov 5, 2013 – “Mercy Johnson Not Banned, She Is Rude & Often Walks Out On Movie Set – Onitsha Branch Made A Petition Against Her” – Movie Marketers Chairman

The Chairman of Movie marketers association of Nigeria has spoken up on the viral story of Mercy Johnson’s ban from Nollywood that is expected to take effect come January 2014.

In a recent chat with the Nation, Mr. Norbert Ajaegbu said the story is not as earlier reported.

He claims complaints were brought against Mercy Johnson for her rudeness and how she often walks out from movie location without proper notice.

He said the Onitsha branch of the organization made several petitions against Mercy Johnson that she often dictates to people who pay her to work on movie set.

Ajaegbu said a meeting to address Mercy Johnson’s indiscipline has been fixed for Thursday November 7th, 2013.

This is what the chairman of Film, Video Producers and Markers Association of Nigeria, (FVPMAN) said on the issue:

We did not ban Mercy Johnson, and this is authoritative. Let me tell you what happened; we had a National Working Committee meeting which I presided over. The leadership of the Onitsha branch came up with an issue that most of the artistes are charging exceedingly high. On that issue I ruled that such is the function of a competitive market; arguing that if an artiste is charging for example, N5 million, they are free to pick another artiste, who may charge N500, 000, if that is what they can afford.”

On Mercy Johnson’s high movie fee, FVPMAN chairman said:

“I also made them to understand that we are gunning for the day an artiste in Nigeria would be paid N100 million or sign N100 million as a contract fee, because that is the way to show that we are progressing. We can’t afford to remain in one spot for years”

Mercy Johnson’s Rudeness & Indiscipline On Movie Set

“I think they understood that, but they also brought complaints against Mercy that she sometimes walks out on set. They said sometimes, people would pay her for a job but she would prefer to give priority to those that are paying higher. On that issue, I said we cannot take a decision because there is no formal petition.”

“I told them to go back to their zone, discuss it and come out with a formal decision. We have fixed another meeting for Thursday, November 7, to see if there will be any petition. That was all that was said, so I am surprised that there is false news flying around that Mercy has been banned. If action would be taken, we would call her personally and inform her primary guild.”

If the case brought against her is true, then Mercy Johnson needs to be careful because pride goes before a fall.

As the only breadwinner of the family (this is authoritative) the mother of one needs to put caution to play when dealing with producers and movie directors because these are the people paying her.

The outcome of their meeting on Thursday will determine Mercy Johnson‘s fate in Nollywood.

  4. Am never in support of rude people no matter who you are and made it clear when the news was broke about the ban,but there are certain things people should know about the present MJ from the old MJ,she is now a mother with a very young child that she takes around her always,who needs attention even if the world is colliding,with a man as a husband who wants the services of his wife.all this and more can make her snapping because she is human not robot.when dealing with her case I plead on her behalf that people should pls exercise a little bit patience with her because she may be under presure.mJ you on your own should talk to yourself and curtail your rudeness or whatever the problem is and ask for forgiveness from everybody pls.treating people the way you will want to be treated will cement everything and more matured.mJ pls be the bigger person in this case and do the right thing.

  10. Based on what the man said , I think there is more to it. He is not telling us the truth. I believe mercy. I see it as witch hunting in the industry just to bring mercy down. But remember who so ever God has bless no man can caused. It could be they spoke to her a way that is not good and somehow as human being she reacted to it and now they want to use it against her

  11. The president speaks very matured,and there is element of truth in what he is saying.Mercy please use your tongue to count your teeth,i remain a committed fan and will always tell you the truth, i advise you humble yourself for God resist the proud and give grace to the humbled, a word is a enough for the wise.
