  1. am sure the producers who mostly will reject her could be Yoruba producers cause most of her movies are Igbo Directors. as we all know that Yoruba never features Igbo’s in movie like Igbo’s features Yorubas in movie even major roles.

    Eg Jenifa’s Diary all the cast are Yorubas but Igbo’s names were used,there so many other more. your name is Mercy and God shown his mercy upon you by taking to the level you are live today. enjoy your moment

  2. i don’t believe you, Genevieve,Stephanie Okereke, Ufuoma Ejenabo, Chioma Chukwuka, Cha Cha Eke, Ini Edo, Queen Nwokoye, Susan Peters, Funke Akindele, just but to mention a few are all dark in complexion.
    Pls tell us something else.

  3. Congrats MJ dear,,such’s life,,,especially when one’s focused & determined 2 succeed nothin’s impossible.

  4. If Africans discriminate against people with African skin color then why do we complain that other people discriminate against Africans ???

  5. This her story would have inspired a lot of people if she didn’t change her skin color from black to something else
