    Still looks huge to me though, but she looks very good for a new mum, everybody must not be slim.

    Although I think she’s a good actress. There’s just a lot more I think mama Purity can do in the style department. She always comes across as unsophisticated (Bad clothes choice, worse makeup etc). I think she can do better cause she’s a beautiful woman.

    Mercy Johnson, we have all supported you to be known as a good actress but if you want to climb up the ladder u need more class. Just take a look at that make up, the brows, foundation did not even out the skin. Mercy Johnson pls get some class and your package will be complete.

    Them hu-has are going south! You definitely need a better
    bra. I know you can afford it Girl! And btw BN it is almost a year
    since she had the baby, so yes…she should have lost the baby
    weight. I just saw a picture of Kate Middleton’s abbs when she was
    playing volleyball in a charity event…now that is what I’m
    talking about if you guys wanna go on about losing baby weight

      Eve82 pls zip it and take several sits…..people r different and no law says the weight must all come off in the first year……you ple just put standards you cannot achieve yourselfs on others cos they r celebrities….mtchweeeew

    Chai! No naaa! Mercy I love you with all my heart. Please
    try and package yourself and your brand well now. What kind of
    tacky looking studio is this? 🙁

  24. Larakingz

    November 10, 2013 at 10:48 am

    Well, would say, she sure has lost some weight as some of
    we single ladies are still bigger than she is without dropping one.
    Kudos Mercy. think you should continue as yinkarufai says till you
    get it right.

    Some people cannot style themselves to save their lives, so they leave it to others who supposedly can. Mercy probably pays more attention to her acting and her family, and like many others before her, trusts the stylists and makeup artists that surround her. Sadly, they fail her quite often. She’s beautiful, pretty (someone said she isn’t but I disagree), and will look uber gorgeous if she had stylists that know how to work with her body & face. These stylists may make someone like Dakore look heavenly because they find it easier to work with a more petite person with easier facial structures. But Mercy needs more than just makeup, a wig and pretty clothes. She needs someone who understands her structure and can work with it.

      You are very kind but Dakore is not petite and does not have “easier facial structures”. Dakore is simply fit and very pretty. Mercy Johnson is NOT pretty at all, not even close and her style does not help.

      Chai! See hate spewing forth o. Any woman can be pretty; it’s only a matter of having the money to get the right products, stylist, proper fitting clothes, knowing what works for her body e.t.c. Loads of babes that you’d write off as being ugly would actually look better with the right conditions, care, exposure and more…. I’ve seen babes like that with my jaws dropping at the transformation.,…

    There are so many protruded and bloated single ladies with”huhas” prostrating to the ground who wished they looked HALF as good as she does.Cut her some slack ooo and let’s quit the comparison with other foreign celebs.

    I love this woman.
    I love Obi’s Comment.
    I think it’s The makeup it’s not for her Skin tone.
    A little blend will help because African/Nigerian
    Celebrities are known and seen around The world.
    It’s a hard pill to swallow, but The truth of The matter
    Is her being a celebrity, AN actress, and A star that
    She is, people expect more from her looks than her
    Acting. We might deny it, but it’s The truth.
    Mercy…. I use to have some facial Acne/Pimples
    But I tried “Neutrogena Acne face wash” and some
    Proactive products and it works for me.
    You can order it online, it’s not expensive, because
    When it comes to Skin breakouts, people especially
    Women will Go at any length.
    And being my top Naija Actress, I honestly hope
    This little piece of info will help someone.
    #Thanks to all BN Readers#

    Hmmm. I’m trying to find a nice way to say this without being termed a hater. Mercy needs a better style team. The choice of clothes, hair and make up for this shoot doesnt do her any justice at all. Seeing as this is her first post-baby shoot, she should have gone all out.
    Mercy, if you ever get to read this, its time to spend of the money you are reportedly making and up your style game. Work with a pro make up artist for shoots like this, we shouldn’t be seeing the pimples on your face. A lot of women have pimples but we have perfected the art of concealing them when we need to. You have a well endowed bust, so you need to package them properly and not have them look like gravity is getting the upper hand – even if it is.

    November 12, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    Abeg abeg let’s be realistic! Who said Mercy has got the best body shape in Nollywood?? Huh???? I hate to say it right now that Mercy is not even pretty like some have rightly said, if you truly know what pretty means. She doesn’t have a pretty face and she is not ugly either.
    For her skin she really has to work on getting a cleaner clearer skin, she has never had that right from the onset.
    Her stature is okay and she has tried to shed some baby weight. She wasn’t slim before pregnancy so what are we expecting to see after?! Like someone said there is always room for improvement 🙂
