January 24, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, has given credit to her senior colleague, Patience Ozokwor, whose counsel helped her to quit indecent dressing.
Mercy, who was well-known for wearing clingy clothes barring parts of her body as a spinster, said the veteran convinced her to embrace decency for the sake of her future kids.
The mother of four confessed she was lucky to have received the life-changing admonition albeit, noted she learned the hard way.
“Do you remember when you were younger before you got married when I told you that the photos you take today, your children will see them tomorrow and immediately with the kind of lifestyle you lived?” Ozokwor asked during an episode of Mercy’s cooking show, ‘Mercy’s Menu’.
Affirming the statement, the 38-year-old actress responded: “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 still learned the hard way really.”
