November 5, 2016 – Nollywood Movie Producers Rejects Mercy Johnson Because Of Her Dark Skin Complexion
Nigerian actress Mercy Johnson has exposed the issue of colour discrimination in Nollywood.
The versatile actress who has become a household name today revealed that she faced rejection at some point in her acting career when some movie producers allegedly refused to give her slot in their production because she is dark in complexion.
She said most producers prefer to work with light-skinned ladies at the expense of talented but dark-skinned ones.
This explains why most ladies in Nollywood settle for skin bleaching.
