Short biography of Mercy Johnson
We will not go into detail about every event in the history of Mercy Johnson, but we feel like it is important to recap her life story, so that we can better understand how she has managed to amass such a fortune.
In case you do not know, Johnson came from humble beginnings. She was born on August 28, 1984 in a family of a naval officer. During the early years, her family struggled financially, and Mercy with her siblings (she is the fourth child out of seven) had to start working early to help their parents out.
One of the jobs Johnson has tried was acting, and she turned out to be quite good at it. In 2004, she appeared in her first movie titled ‘The Maid’, and things changed for her forever. In just a few years, Mercy went from being basically a nobody to becoming one of the most popular actresses of Nollywood. Many of the Mercy Johnson films have become fan favourites, such as Baby Oku in America, Obioma The Slave Girl, Mercy the Bus Driver, 30 Days In Atlanta and many more.
Since then, she has starred in well over a hundred movies and received multiple accolades for her performances. It is important to note that nowadays, the actress earns around ₦3.5 million per every movie. Not too shabby for someone who does not even have a degree! But please, stay in school, kids.
In addition to earning money through acting, Mercy has recently become an ambassador of multiple brands. Despite not having any endorsement deals for quite a long time, this year, she has signed several deals with various companies, including Virony Nigeria, Mr Chef Iodized salt and Gracia Planta. If you go to her Instagram (@mercyjohnsonokojie) you can often see her repping Mr Chef Salt very often. This means that they have probably offered her quite a deal!
The impressive assets of Mercy Johnson
As you might have guessed, Mercy Johnson definitely does not just have all that money lying around. Even though she is not one of those celebrities that love to show off their riches on social media, we know that she has a lovely house and several cars.
Mercy lives with her family in a large duplex in Thomas Estate, Ajah, Lagos. By family we mean her husband Prince Odi Okojie, whom she married in 2011, and their three beautiful children: Purity (born 2012), Henry (born 2014) and Angel (born 2015). Their house has a terrace, bar, gym, swimming pool and, most importantly, six bedrooms, so the Okojies can definitely try for another baby 🙂
Apart from owning real estate, Mercy also has several cars. She is the owner of a 2013 Range Rover SUV, which her husband bought for her when she was pregnant with their first baby. It is interesting to note that her second car — a Lexus SUV — is also a gift from her husband, and he gifted it to her when she was pregnant with their second child. What is strange is that she has not gotten a car for their third child. Maybe it was getting a bit repetitive.
Unlike many famous movie stars, Mercy does not share too much of her personal life on social media. She never boasts about her wealth or flexes on others about the cars she have. Coming from an underprivileged family, Johnson seems to understand the worth of things better than your regular celebrity, and it is definitely a sight for sore eyes these days.
A lot of women who are of Mercy Johnson age (she is currently 34) could probably only dream of the life she has. The actress has a successful career in the movie industry, a loving family and quite a lot of money, too. We know that Mercy’s journey to stardom is not yet over, so we cannot wait to see what more she has in store for us. We sincerely hope that she will continue to bless us with her talent and beauty for years to come.
