A number of top Nigerian film stars failed to show up when Mercy Johnson premiered her latest movie titled ‘’The Legend of Inikpi”.
Many expected to see a lot of popular faces at the Silverbird Cinema in Lagos on January 19, 2020 but this was not the case.
Rita Dominic, Tonto Dikeh, Uche Jombo, Ini EdoFunke Akindele, Toyin Abraham, Toke Makinwa, Omotola Ekeinde, Dakore Akande and many other constant event red carpet faces were absent.
It is unclear if Mercy Johnson invited them or not but many believe they should have supported the actress in anyway possible.
Only AY and Mabel Makun, Yvonne Jegede, Diane Russet, Sir Dee, Denrele, Amanda Dara, Thelma, Cee-C and a host of others graced the event.
“Mercy Johnson is one of the few successful actors in the industry that has got everything working out well for her. Her marriage is fine, her husband dots on her, she has got beautiful kids and expecting one more, her cooking show, hotel, and other businesses are booming well, and she doesn’t engage in any childish social spat on social media, and now her very first own movie. You think many of them wouldn’t be jealous of her?” a source told Kemi Filani News.
It is reported that the Nollywood stars hardly posted about her movie that was set to be premiered.
Well, Prince Okojie, husband of Mercy Johnson, has said that God has got his wife’s back.
“That smiles when God got your back…At the movie premiere of THE LEGEND OF INIKPI…. We were fully on ground at the movie premiere of “THE LEGEND OF INIKPI”…. is out in cinema nationwide on the 24th of Jan. Go see it and thank me later.”, he wrote on social media.
Mercy Johnson responded saying “my arm candy for last night’s premiere @princeodiokojie for all your love, strength and support thank you!”
The Nollywood stars who failed to attend the event are yet to respond to the matter.
