By Rita Chioma,
Nollywood actress and Senior Special Assistant on Entertainment, Arts and Culture to Kogi State governor, Mercy Johnson Okojie, has revealed why she stopped playing romantic roles in movies.
The mother of three said she stopped accepting the roles because her husband does not like it.
The Star actress told the Sun, that due to her husband’s dislike for such roles, she cannot accept it even for all the money in the world.
She said, “My husband doesn’t watch my movies. But I think he has heard about the clown I am in movies (laughter). Nevertheless, I adore him for being my backbone and supporter of my career.
”Though, for the past eight years of our relationship, I haven’t featured in romantic roles. This is because he doesn’t like it and I can’t do it for all the money in the world.”
On how she balances work and life, she said, “I operate on a scale of preference regarding my service to God, family and job. My family has to be comfortable before discussing my job.”
