I was afraid of meeting Genevieve Nnaji for the first time – Mercy Johnson

I was afraid of meeting Genevieve Nnaji for the first time - Mercy Johnson
Talented Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson-Okojie has revealed the tension of excitement she experienced on meeting her colleague and then idol Genevieve Nnaji for the first time.

Said the mother of three during an interview with City People Magazine:

“The first time I met her, my friend took me there. When we got to where she was, I became nervous. I told my friend “no let me hide in your boot.” And I did. I got into her boot. Can you imagine I came to see her and when I got there I wanted to run back. I jumped into my friends boot. So, when she came out of the hotel, I could not see her, I could only hear her voice.

“The 2nd time I saw her was on set. When she came down and I met her she said “ahh! Mercy I like your movies” and I started crying. I was in tears of joy. I said “Aunty Genevieve, so you watch my movies?” She was sort of embarrassed. Before I met her, she had already known that there was somebody who was crazily insane about her. She was really nice to me, receptive. And even whenever we work together she will correct me and say that thing you did, you could have done it this way.”
