BN Exclusive: Mercy Johnson’s New Promo Photos & Scoop from her Liberia Trip



Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson spent the Valentine’s Day weekend in Liberia. Mercy caused a major frenzy when she arrived at the Roberts International Airport in Monrovia. The star who travelled with members of her team including her manager and publicists was welcomed by press photographers, airport officials and airline staff, many of whom rallied around to take photos and get autographs from the Nigerian star. During her time in Monrovia, Mercy gave interviews to a cross-section of local press including Magic FM, Truth FM and Sky TV. A special event was organized in her honour, this was an opportunity for Mercy to meet and connect with her Liberian fans. It was an exciting trip for the Nigerian star and definitely highlights the Pan African and global potential for Nollywood to become Nigeria’s most relevant cultural export.

Now that she is back on Nigerian soil, Mercy is dishing out something new to fans. She has just released a brand new set of promotional photographs and has the exclusive scoop.
Check on it.

      The make up is great like Ini and other people do the same makeup too….I think it looks great that my opinion..

      February 27, 2011 at 6:33 pm

      not fair, at least we should be appreciative, when we see good things…… Abeg mercy Amaka try for ur make-up, i think u should be using her more often in ur movies….lol

      And that was the only thing you could say after first glance? Gosh, some people are just full of all kinds of negativity.

      Mercy has a killer body, she’s a full woman with great curves!! The outfits really flatter her shape and accentuate her waist. However, the lace-weave is not on point and that cheapens the whole look. Those blue shoes in that last picture are super-cute!

      anyway i bet she loves the way she looks. those plastic colours Ini is trying to leave behind, she too needs to do that.
      and yes her powder didnt quite do it.

      Why are people still on this first business? Is there a reason I don’t know? Is Bella giving out some rewards that makes people continually announce their position? If you’re first, we have eyes and we can count. But then again, to each his own.

    i actually like this better than all other photo shoot so far, the thing is mercy will always have the same faceno matter how many makeup is being put on her.truth is she is just not that pretty….but i like this, seeing this kind of gives the idea of the kind of clothes whe might be intrested in putting on. U go gir!!!!!!

    • Sunshine

      September 26, 2011 at 3:17 pm

      You do know that prettiness is subjective. Mercy is a beautiful girl in my opinion. She has a great body, but will need to exercise to remain fit as she gets older and she’s a better actress than many of the other girls in Nigerian movies today. Love her but I really hate the hair.

  7. Faith

    February 25, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    Not impressed. wig, makeup, clothes… so not working for me. Good job thou :o)

    February 25, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    No need for hand on bum though. It makes what would have passed as very classy fall slightly short of that.

  17. K!

    February 25, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    I can’t see any comments here but, I’ve learnt never to scream “first!!!!!” (all thanks to THE AMAKA).
    Back to the topic, I’m loving the blue knee-length dress. Nice pictures but , please reduce the make up so you don’t end up looking like ‘Ojuju Calabar’

    February 25, 2011 at 7:03 pm

    for the first time…Mercy kept her twins intact…great…who says you cannot be sexy when u dress decently?…keep t up and always keep the twins away!

    February 25, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    & for the wig..she doesnt v any choice than to live wt this lace wigs for now, since she has scraped her hair of for N5M…price of stardom…but she’s ok to me sha….


    February 25, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    whoever photoshopped these pictures did not do a good job. too much airbrushing! KAI.
    and i don’t fancy how she is whipping that weave around as if its hers. the too long weave is TACKY. (hopefully it does not become a trend among Nollywood actresses).
    as for the mentioning of her Liberia trip….why mention it at all if we’re not gonna see pictures or videos from it? mtchewww!
    the photos are okay, i just think it would have been more classy if she didn’t keep putting her butt in our faces. WE KNOW YOU HAVE A BIG BUTT, ENOUGH ALREADY!


    February 25, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    all in all, the last picture is the classiest one. that shows a sexy but professional side.

From the pictures it looks like she is listening to crtics and tryna “up” her game, so give her a daggone break! Even Genevieve and co didnt get it overnight now?>
    I’ll say one thing though…..D NAILS (horrible).Look like claws lol

    • Ready

      February 26, 2011 at 11:20 am

      Lmao…nails look like claws. And you’re talking about some hatorade sipping. You’re like the only person who noticed the nails, the rest of us saw only the obvious; the tacky dresses (why couldn’t she loan something from those hot designers?), the caked on makeup, and the dingy cheap-looking studio background as well as the cliche poses. Her body’s nice though…she just needs to up her game.

  44. MissNikie

    February 25, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    my contributions are
    1) the make up did not match her skin, too much eyeshadow.. common problems with some nigerians ladies they believe going a color lighter is better. Mercy please find a way to MAC make up.
    2) her dresses are ok
    3) the pose are ok, but can be better
    4) she need to find better photographer , and FIRE HER MAKE UP ARTIST.
    thank you

    • Z

      March 7, 2011 at 4:44 pm

      lol @ find your way to MAC makeup…any brand would do fine for her. She just needs to pick the right shade for her skin color. She could buy MAC and still have the wrong shade on her skin 😉


    February 25, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    Cheap looking outfits, cheaper looking accessories, Makeup gone wrong, Lace front?? Horrible!! the nails nightmarish…. Seriously though, who invented these lacefronts? he/she should pay a penalty for all the havoc it is causing, plus the idea itself is fraud! Even a blind person can identify a lace-front. Isn’t the major selling point its “real” look?
    nyama nyama pictures…. Next Pls!!!!!

      I second your statement. What Liberian hole has she been hiding herself? The outfits would do well with a different market audience…my house help would definitely love outfit #3! Shoot, I believe she wore one like that last Sunday to church. Seriously,
      The workmanship of the outfits looks good, but the style needs some serious update. The last outfit looks like it might be the only good stuff she’s got to offer. Would love to see it fully though .

    • Sunshine

      September 26, 2011 at 3:23 pm

      Serious update…your house help….please! Why are Nigerians always acting like they have so much money. Quite frankly taste…including taste in clothes is subjective. I and many other western people find Nigerians dress tacky. With overly bright colours like they want to be seen from outer space. Her clothes here are quite muted in colour, which is good. I wouldn’t say I like all the clothes but I find most okay.

Every single shoe she wore was on point and d colour combination wr delicious. I will wear evrything she wore wifout alteration. Kudos 2 d stylist. Mercy has d most beautiful body in nollywood.

    I don’t see anything wrong with the pictures. The powder blends perfectly. The camera light may have made it lighter than it is or the Photoshop. I think she looks great! Like someone mentioned. Some of the stars we go crazy were once worst than mercy. Just because technology was not up the par then like now. So, take some chill pills.

    Ahh I love Mercy Johnson! BUT who did her makeup and HAIR?! Not working at all mate! When will people realize lacefront wigs are not it? Geezz hairline reaching your eyebrows = HORRIBLE!. Stick to regular weaves or go natural! She’s a great actress though (compared to Genevieve imo) so she can pass on this one.

  58. chi

    February 26, 2011 at 3:22 am

    As far as am concerned, Mercy Johnson is d next big thing after Omotola and Genevieve in everything. My opinion.,

  59. no effort

    February 26, 2011 at 3:36 am

    At least she tried, but no effort was put in the shoot, the poses were just the same, the outfits are horrible, and was not well styled, yes she added weight, but photoshopping wud have worked wonders and gladly take off some inches. Then the hair, i shouldn’t even go there talk less of the make up. Just fire your publisist an every other team involved in this wud follow. I would never release these pictures if she was my client.

    Pls take note of the mistakes and plsssssss try again.
    God bless you.

Refreshing and totally encouraged when i see a talents managers and publicist team do a great job as you can tell they did here. maybe am just being biased as PR professional but i say kudos to Mercy herself for stepping up improvements/rebranding are key to longevity in the industry

    February 26, 2011 at 11:44 am

    seriously, the pictures were just all around bad, to be totally honest. the negative outweighs the positive. back to the drawing board!
    Mercy has been in this industry since at least 2003 (AT LEAST!) and coming up on 7-8 years now? seriously? there is only so long you can behave like a newbie. she will be one of Nollywood’s A-list if she would just change her style and possib;y her attitude!!! the wigs are horrible! African/Black women, when will we stop this madness!!! LACE WIGS DO NOT LOOK GOOD, PERIOD!
    you see Genny? she wore a lace wig once to Nike Okinshowo’s fit at 40 event and never wore a lace wig again! it was just not tasteful.
    we seriously should just stick to regular weaves or wear our real hair, because it looks so much more normal. sorry to say, but lace wigs remind me of mops!

      February 26, 2011 at 4:30 pm

      i will make sure i do a PROPER photoshoot and not pose so “razz” as some Nigerians call it. just because Mercy didn’t do such a tasteful photoshoot, you are making excuses and saying we should go and do our own? oh please. for someone of her status and for someone that has been in the game this long, what is the excuse?


    February 26, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    When I Looked through this picture all I could think was….LOCAL!! infact…LOOO-CALLL!! this pictures honestly are razz, and I don’t blame Ms. Johnson herself but I blame the photographer, stylist, hair and makeup person. Infact Ms. Johnson I’ll slap them for you. What Mercy Johnson has going for her is that she is SEXY, and CURVY…so flaunt that in a very stylish way.

    If you are lost look at pictures of Monica Belucci, Sofia Vergara,beyonce or any other curvy woman out there. Copy the fashion and poses and try again.

    The only pictures I like are the last one and the one where her hand is on her bum and she’s looking back.

    Screw her STYLIST! seriously!! u have money Hire Ezinne, Dimeji or Bolaji…don’t use these no names or Dress urself. please.

    Whoa! Epic Fail!!!

    This has got to be the HARDEST TRY anyone has ever put in taking pictures….too bad it still comes up short. There is just something not quite right about Mercy Johnson, she hasn’t got that….that classy look and the harder she tries, the more glaringly obvious it is.

    My advice…stick to the housegirly, trashy look babe and stop – our eyes with these try hardy pictures.

    And before anyone gets upset and starts spouting crap about jealousy, lemme just say two words. . .Tila Tequila. This is a woman who embraced her trashy side and is better off for doing so.

    Just sayin’

    Yay!! she’s all covered up at last! Dresses become you darling, excuse the make up, the lace wig, some of the clothes and Debbin studios, this is a step in the right direction, not perfect but almost there!

    Yay! She’s all covered up at last! Dresses become you darling! Excuse the poor make-up, the lace wig, some of the clothes and photography by Debbin studios ( in this day and age! Didn’t ‘know you nollywood peeps still used the place, so 2006 or 5!), your new look is a step in the right direction, not perfect but we get the point!

    NOt Quite the razzness is still screaming out if these photoshoots and the photo shop is too much. She needs to change her stylist, is still not quite there yet. Contact Omawunmi (ex beauty queen) or Genevieve stylist. You got the body Mercy – i still pray for the day – you will just get it right.

    Mercy is one of the Nollywood actresses that I love to watch. The ninth picture is my favorite,i.e the one she wore the black outfit with the pink shoes.

  95. Marian

    February 27, 2011 at 6:26 am

    We all love her thats why we are concern – How does one have a banging kim kardashian type body – the best body in nollywood bar none – and yet be the worst dresser. Something aint right and we are all fasting and praying she gets it right one day like Ini finally did on her WOW photoshoot.That photo of Ini looked more natural. This one – i think an omoghetto person did the styling – I dont blame Mercy at all not one bit, I blame the RAZZZ stylist – the stylist is th e worst. I am sure Mercy wanted the best and paid her good – yet she made her look like a clown. MERcy get ya refund sha

  96. Tolu

    February 27, 2011 at 6:29 am

    Her nails always irks me – whenever i watch a movie of her – i cant help but see her ghetto nails – she doesnt know how to wear acrylics, just pay real good attention tot her hand nails in anymovie especially when she is a city girl and they put on fake nails on her, she wears it so wrong

  97. Tolu

    February 27, 2011 at 6:33 am

    Even that photoshooot RIta, Genny, Kate and Ini did , i feel the photo would have been more complete had they included Mercy – cos to me those 5 are the only best in nollywood (maybe OmoT and Stella too) – and maybe that Genevieve Magazize stylist would done good for Mercy on there. See that since that Genevieve Magazine photoshoot Ini realised there is hope and never turned back since. That photoshoot opened her eyes to “MAKEUPS and GOODSTYLING can turn razzness looking to GOLD. like Hollywood why can some of these top naija fashion designers give their clothes for mercy to wear and model for them for FREE (lol) – the best body to model it dont you think

  98. Bimbo

    February 27, 2011 at 6:37 am

    Naijas are the worst when it comes to wearing lace fronts. Abeg learnfrom African Americans. I have never seen one (especially those razz nollywood people) ever wearing lace front right. There are so many videos on youtube to learn it the right way. Get it together. Lace front is not suppose to be worn where one can tell its a lace front. Aba! chei – it is not suppose to sit on ya forehead – those who wear it worst are Rukky Sanda, Uche Jumbo, Mercy Johnson, RITA DOMINIC (yep even her) Ini Edo and almight Tontoh Dikeh – sometimes i watch the movie and see them wearing it – i want to scream. Or maybe i should their stylist Uche Nancy

  99. UzoAmaka

    February 27, 2011 at 6:43 am

    You cannot compare this photoshoot to Genevieve’s or to Ini Edos recent Wow MAgazine shoot – Mery is an excellent actress but has far to go in the style department. But like someone said, if Genevieve and Ini were able to make it so can Mercy. I saw a phot of Genevieve from way back when in some leapard dress, gosh i almost fainted. She has come really far, As well as Rita Dominic with her china gloss lip gloss coupled with black pencil to line her lips. Chei – that was lesss that 10 yrs ago – see how far they a have come. Abeg lets leave Mercy alone – hopefully by 2012 she will get it right (with practice) – first and foremost a trip to the dermatologist will help. By the way in that industry – has someone set up an image consulting firm (thats a good business venture) – an image consulting firm to help these razz folks. How do you think Mary J Blige transformed – a good stylist from a image consulting firm helped her . the need for such is a state of EMERGENCY for NOLLYWOOD.

    Not so excellent but certainly much better than you looked before…You look good in most of the pictures and i love some of your attires. A change in your foundation & powder will do..and probably less is more most times. It don’t matter how much hate is coming your way, keep your head step at a time till you get there..Blessings.. 🙂

    February 27, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    i say it’s a step in the right direction, yes there are mistakes here and there but……
    I love the fact that this girl is covered up and looking real good. She is a great actress and she is loosing that tacky image and she will get to the *promised land*, i am confident of this.

  126. NIRA

    February 28, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    Naija and haters!!! Her make up is photography mkup and one is allowed to play with colours and be dramatic. Even if the powder’s a bit off, her makeup’s still beautiful. I’ll like to see pictures of all of you that are good at criticizing and see what y’all look like. The girl’s doing well for herself, I wonder why some ppl cannot say anything positive about other ppl,especially women!! Tufiakwa!!!

    Not a bad try for u Mercy and believe u can do better cos Rome was not built in a day, Can we stop all dis criticism and try & encourage her its not easy out there but she is really trying , all of u condemning her can u do better or are u better , i believe if they give all of u an opportunity to prove urself uhmm! many of u we fail really bad.
    go girl just keeping doing wat u know how 2 do best and u find d sky will b ur limit.

  129. RMG

    February 28, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    This’s the best i’ve seen Mercy,especially pictures 6&7. For the record,I remember her being a lot darker than this,check out her first set of movies…one can’t be too sure if she’s “touched a bleaching cream” or not. In any case, I prefer her with her thick arms covered…for all those screaming bangin’ body,many, many nigerian (african) ladies are equally endowed.Not exactly loving the clothers nor the hair but Nonetheless, she looks quite good.

    mercy is one Nollywood fairy tale sucess story and i love her for more than oine reason but this is so tacky! If you have to post your pics on the net as a celebrity next time please get a professional stylist, a professional make-up artist and let Kelechi Amadi Obi take the pics. every outfit in this picture is cheap and the shoes are made in china (i see those a mile away) and it sucks for a celebrity. What do you do with the money you are paid? I didn’t say spend it all on fashion but if you want put your pics in our faces please let them speak of class because you are our star and a naija representative to the world. All said, i love you Mercy and you have really improved so i bet you’ll take our advise here and do better!

    March 22, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    I think Mercy looks nice, and needs encouragement. She hasn’t exactly been known for her good taste, and these pictures look to me as though she is trying to re vamp her image, which is always a good thing. So, I say thumbs up to you girl, as a full figured girl, I have learned that the best look is whatever accentuates my curves without revealing too much skin (my body shapers are my best friends), and it looks like you’ve learned it too. Keep it up!

    The lady is beautiful. Hater should leave her alone. You all with negative comments should take your own pictures and bring them to public domain and let’s assess you.
