LIB exclusive: Marketers ban Mercy Johnson for being too expensive

Yeah you read right, Nollwood marketers have banned actress Mercy Johnson Okojie for being too expensive. Doesn't make sense does it? If someone's fees is too high, the sensible thing to do would be to boycott them and use less expensive actresses. Leave her to those who can afford her na, abi?

Mercy Johnson is currently the highest paid actress in Nollywood. She charges between N1.8million to N2m to feature in a movie. The others, like Ini and Funke charge between N700k to N1.2million.

For this reason, the actress has been blacklisted by the Nollywood Movie Marketers Association. The ban will not take effect immediately as Mercy has already signed up to do quite a number of movies. She returned on Thursday from a movie location, and will be on the set of another movie from tomorrow, Sunday. She will be traveling out of Nigeria sometime this month and when she returns, will be on another movie set...so she's basically booked till the end of the year.

The idea now is not to ban her after all her current contracts end. So the ban won't take effect until at least January 2014. This is not the first time the movie marketers association will be placing a ban on actors. They did this a few years ago when quite a number of Nollywood actors including Genevieve Nnaji, Ramsey Noah, RMD, Emeka Ike, Jim Iyke and others were blacklisted.

    The marketers make dier cash yet they don't want the actors to make theirs too. That's rubbish na. U must not afford all actors...like u said, everyone has a price,if one can't afford Mercy,a lot of people are there to play the role. Make una leave the lady biko.

    Mtcheew!! If I were Mercy I'll fight dem in court.
    That been said, that's part of the reason our actresses continue to add runs to their portfolio. If after hustling to do several movies in a year. And one ode will sit someone where and be placing maximum fee or face ban threat. (˘˘̯)

    Surely our National treasure

    Frankly no other does it better. She is quite a talent and an excellent find. Mercy my sweet please take this as an opportunity to see what else lies out there. By this I mean in the way of product endorsement contracts, clothing lines, perfumes, weave product line, beauty product product lines, sexy lingerie lines, clothing for Purity sef - we go buy! walahi!. Do not let those chauvinists that hold sway at the nigerian film marketers cheat you out of your talent. It is not a crime to be good at your work. Keep Your Head UP! as for those asking this wonderful actress to stop acting because she married a rich husband - SHARRRRAAAAPPPPP!

    MJ has multiple talent. I dont know why you guys are beefing her. Whatever you mean by recyling, check the hollywood stars, most of them started from childhood and what are they paid? MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.. No one is like MJ or Mama Gee... Both Ladies are TALENTED. You find talent in someone who can ACT any role thrown at them, they are called STARS!!! SHE IS WORTH THOSE MILLIONS, so if the stingy producers cannot pay her, they should find someone else.. She does GREAT story line and do them PERFECTLY. MERCY WORKED HARD TO BE WHERE SHE IS TODAY AND SHE DESERVES EVEN MORE. £8000 only nd una get mouth? When a star is paid 000000s elsewhere...MTSCHEWWWWWW!!!!! (Linda Post My Comment O!)

    There are no 2 Mercy Johnsons in Nollywood. You can't get a replacement, trust me. A lot of people who are very good actresses won't take on the role she plays and deliver like she would. Una ain't seen nothing, una eyes will clear when you actually impose this ban.

    Seriously, why should she be banned? You think its easy to act a movie where you'll be dragged in the mud, or sit in the refuse dump as a mad woman, mercy does what she knows How to do, and does it to perfection.. If marketers can't afford her, they shouldn't complain, cos they lots of actresses who go for lesser fee's.. I feel this action is unnecesarry.

    Everybody is free to set their fee. Who are these broke ass'marketers' what not to decide to ban someone for charging their price. Why are they not banning shops and stores that are too expensive? This is just complete bullshit.

    Mercy brings her all to her work and if you can't afford a quality actress for your movie then go get what your can buy. I bet if this was a male actor they would never have taken these steps. Woman get body and talent and they want to block her progress, these sexist assholes never stop.

    I hope Mercy can use the opportunity to form her own production company to make and market her own films and get even wealthier and tell them to go kick rocks.

    i believe Mercy lives every role she has plays! what i mean is her acting is so believable and worth a lot of money. Nollywood backoffice is probably cashing in alot of dosh made from the actors&actresses

    Mercy is good at what she does. She started from the scratch before she got to where she is. Her face alone sells movies so if marketers think otherwise, let them use kobo kobo actresses, only them and their kinsmens will watch the movie after production.
    I know most of the marketers might be angry for not being able to get in her pant, and now they are using excuse to get at her. Bunch of never do wells. If you don't use her, Ghana will use her and we will still watch the movie here. Abi if you ban her here, will you also ban us from watching her? Greedy marketers that keep on shunning out half baked films.

    Mj should know dat she is at d top today becos of baba God and d movie marketer.she couldn't have done it all alone .so make she cool down.and make a better and reasonable negotiation wit d movie marketers.if they say d amourt is too much,then let her bring it down.cos if these marketers ban her fame will become lost glory. Nigerians know how to forget people easily. So now dat she is hot cake in d market let her listen to d marketers. Cos she can't act witout d ban. Meaning no extra cash in her pocket if she is ban. Think twice mj.though u do ur job very well. Don't b decieved.

    Mercy Johnson is the most VERSATILE actress in Nollywood. I can't think of any role that she has not acted, be it housegirl, busconductor, area girl, bread hawker, prostitute, etc. The only other actress like her is Funke Akindele. That's why I think the other A-list actresses are overrated, i.e. Genny. Mercy Johnson deserves every naira that she is paid and much more.
