Popular Nigerian actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie took to social media to reveal why she stopped acting romantic scenes.
She made this known via a recent interview with Goldmyne TV at the premier of her directorial debut movie, Legend of Inikpi. According to the soon-to-be mom of four, she made some choices in the past that she isn’t proud of.
She, however, stated that her sense of judgement has now heightened with age. She stated that she can no longer act unclad or do romantic scenes as she is now answerable to many people.
“When I do that, what would the younger girls do? When you grow past a certain level, you try to go ahead and do better. For me, you don’t need people to tell you what’s right or wrong. Age is telling on me. I’ve grown past that level, I’m answerable to too many people: my husband, my kids. I hate to embarrass them in any way. My daughter is growing. She gets hold of my phone sometimes, begins to google, and goes like, ‘Mum, my friends said…’ And they’re very inquisitive. I don’t think it’s (playing unclad scenes) something I want to do to make my kids question me in any way or have something in their mind that they want to ask and they can’t.”
