Strong rumours have it that Nigerian actress and mother of three Mercy Johnson recently went under the knife in America due to health issues. Nollywood star actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, is looking more relaxed and prettier these days going by photos seen around.
The thespian was recently appointed the senior special assistant on entertainment, arts and culture to Kogi State governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, but that is not the only reason behind her latest poise. She just went under the knife, a very reliable source whispered to Global Excellence magazine, and it was successful.
The source said that Mercy, a few weeks back, had work done on her front neck where doctors allegedly removed a scar called fibrosis that hitherto defied treatments to get it under control.
She had the treatment in a United States of America hospital because the US is her family’s second home.
All efforts by this reporter to reach Mercy Johnson for comments on her known mobile phone proved abortive, and a message sent to her husband, Prince Odianosen Okojie, for help via his WhatsApp page remained undelivered till press time.
As the source told a reporter, Mercy had always longed to get rid of this embarrassing stretched scar which was telling on her beautiful appearance to no avail.
“The scar was exposed when she wore dresses that left her neck open and it was embarrassing. But that has been taken care of. She wears her dresses now without having to recheck herself every now and then,” claimed the source.
