Mercy Johnson, a Nollywood actress and entrepreneur, has clarified the misunderstanding about her health.
Mercy Johnson revealed during one of the episodes of her TV show, Mercy’s Menu with Joke Silva, that she had a cancer health scare and was placed on life medication.
She said, “I had a scare. I had a cancer scare. It was like a journey for us because of the kids. My last born was 6 months at that time. We had to understand that this is our new reality. Let’s get the surgery done. They said I was going to be on medication for the rest of my life. It was a reality that we had to sit down”.
However, the short clip from Mercy Johnson’s programme that made rounds on the internet made her fans misinterpret her health condition as she has been receiving calls and messages regarding her condition.
