So much ado about missing presence of Omotola, Ini Edo, Oge Okoye at Mercy Johnson’s Wedding

By on September 6, 2011


With all the controversy, facts and hearsay that trailed Mercy Johnson’s wedding all the way to the D-day, it all finally came to pass.

But what some Nollywood fans and critics might not lay to rest is the fact that some notable actresses did not grace the wedding. With a very large turnout of stars, Nollywood truly showed its support for the screen sweetheart. However, tongues have been wagging as to why a few of the stars did not show up at the wedding. Some of these stars include Omotola Jolade Ekeinde, Ini Edo, Oge Okoye, Tonto Dike, Halima Abubakar and a few others. What is more surprising is that some of these stars are supposedly quite close to the actress, especially Halima Abubakar who used to be not only a very close acquaintance, but also like a sister, owing to the fact that the two actresses hail from the same state.

Could it be that some of them did not want to be involved in the so-called “scandal’ that reared its ugly head just before the wedding??

Rumors going around is that some of these colleagues decided to stay back in the UK where most of them attended Uche Jombo’s movie premier, while some others claimed they were held back to attend Nothinghill Carnival, all in a bid to get an excuse for not being present at the wedding.

What ever the case, I think each one is entitled to his or her own choice. If these stars decided not to be present at the wedding, it is for reasons best known to them and they should not be criticized for it.

However, it was a very touchy moment for Mercy when Genevieve walked into the wedding venue as Mercy on spotting her, reportedly broke down in tears and wept for about five minutes. How touching.

Aside Genevieve, a lot of other top stars and artistes graced the event. Also in attendance was Kenneth Okonkwo, Patience Ozokwo, Madam Kofo, Stephanie Okereke, Jim Iyke, Emeka Ike, Segun Arinze, Ghanian actress Yvonne Nelson who played her chief Brides Maid, amongst many others.

Attendance or no attendance, the actress has had her day and every one present where pleased and satisfied that the day came to a pass successfully.

Meanwhile,  Mercy Johnson is saying a big thank you to all her fans, colleagues and all who supported her in making her big day come true. And we say you are very much welcome Mercy!!

Wish you all the best in marital life!
