Popular Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, has disclosed that veteran actress, Patience Ozokwor, had an influence on the way she dresses.
During a chat with a fellow veteran colleague, Patience Ozokwor, about the latest episode of her cooking show, Mercy’s Menu, the mother-of-four shared the advice she received from her years that changed her sense of style forever.
According to Mercy Johnson, Patience Ozokwor got her to stop dressing immodestly and behave decently.
“Do you remember when you were younger before you got married when I told you that the photos u take today, your children will see them tomorrow and immediately the kind of lifestyle you lived”, Patience said.
And Mercy Johnson confirmed the statement, saying: “Yes you did, you told me Mercy dress properly, you will have kids and when they grow up, they will ask you, why are you looking this way, yes I remember, I’m lucky but I still learned the hard way really”.
During the chat, Patience Ozokwor also revealed why she didn’t remarry after losing her husband years ago.
“I wanted to remarry but my kids had already come of age and they pleaded with me not to marry another man and they promised they will be my husband. They asked me to stay single for them so their friends will not laugh at them that at their age their mum remarried and I understood them, though it was selfish of them, i paid a huge sacrifice for them, no sacrifice is too huge for family.” She said.
