The movie star and mother of 3 shared a lovely message for her husband on Instagram saying:

Fate and time have stood as a witness to our love
You are in my heart like a prayer and the mention of ur name is my worship
With you thorns feel like flowers in my hands
The biggest risk in my life is spending a moment without u
Love bows to no one and needs no permission hence ur name is in my heart like a prayer
I love u babes, everyone is intoxicated by something but I am intoxicated by u,
Ur my fantasy and my every imagination
I love u so much, my quarreling partner, my gossip pal, my trusted friend, my secret keeper and lover.
5yrs down, forever to go. Please Pray for me my friends cus I adore him and with him is where I want to be.
HWA My Hope

    Ermmm! Bia BN I’m just “coming” from SDK. Uncle Freeze has been sacked o. He even threatned to sue MissPetite and Instablog because they wrote that he was sacked because of the throwback pic(where he was cuddling Basketmouth’s wife) which he posted on his IG.

    Anyways, Don’t be afraid to post, SDK posted with evidence of the sack sha so just copy and paste and as usual be like “ACCORDING TO SDK”?

    But why is Mercy always trying so hard to convince us that her life is perfect? “Your name is my worship, the biggest risk is spending a moment without you”, really? It’s excessive, abeg. She’s trying too hard. She over-worships the man.
    And no, I am not bitter, neither do I have any reason to hate them. Its just that in my experience, the women who make their husbands out go be gods in public are the ones who are suffering or being abused the most. What didn’t Tiwa say about her husband? “My king, my heartbeat, my best friend” and yet, look what he did/ was doing to her.
    Mercy, if you are TRULY happy, then I’m happy for you. However, the way you try so hard to prove it, I doubt that you are.

      Mercy, ur husband be Jesus. Take am easy. I don’t mind women praising their men but I give side eye only bcos women busy doing that while the man is dialing edible caterer on a speed dial. Ok, not all men cheat.

    @Baby gurl,I don’t think she would really do that.Mercy is known for writing these kind of messages though.not the first time.

      madam know it all… learn to mind ur business. if u don’t believe in her unending real and true love for her hubby that’s ur problem. if it was Beyonce that wrote this powerful message to Jay…am sure u will drop a lovely comment…but since it is Mercy Johnson Okojie the Nigerian Diva…its not believable right??? go hug transformer if u don’t believe in Mj’s genuine love for Odi. this is real love that could make the heavens weep for more. show some love not Hate speeches.
      God bless ur Union Mercy Johnson Okojie.

      @Safiyanu(madam know nothing).Call me a hater but am a step ahead of you in intelligence,duh.God is the only one to be worshipped not any human,so at times some of her messages are a bit ridiculous..I Say it as I know it.Literally it’s not right but can’t say much as maybe it’s only figuratively.If you are wise enough you won’t believe everything you read or hear celebs say or write even everyone.You would wish people well but wait till you know what happens behind closed doors.Most of the time the ones who preach “perfect” have the worst.Its their day don’t take the painkiller for someone’s headache,dear child

    August 27, 2016 at 6:45 pm

    Safiyanu,please call everyone who says and thinks differently hater .Also believe everything everyone including celebs say even though you don’t live with them.I would mind my business just as you did by replying ,get a job as Mercy’s spokeswoman and it would do you much good.Also I know Mercy loves her hubby dearly because if rumors are true ,how many women can work and fend for their families and unemployed hubbies singlehandedly.And come out to only say how ‘rich’ he is.Man says he is a businessman,woman says he is a contractor.Siaa!!!next ready for you today,bring it on.why do people always read bad into what people say and can’t take constructive criticism.?Alwaysvsitting behind phones,laptops saying nonsense because I don’t have a peppermouth?i do have a peppermouth but am only respectful.Because it’s blue,everyone should say blue.why???keep on taking Advil for someone’s migraine.

      Madam know it all…
      just as you’re ready to post negative comments about a woman you rarely know… that is how am ready to reply all ur negative comments. learn to celebrate and appreciate people. what’s ur beef with Mercy???? is it because d world recognized her and d sound and mention of her name can break a chord or is it because she’s happily married with kids and you’re not… madam get serious with ur life….Cuz hating on fellow mortal beings will lead u no where. d more u hate…d more she soar higher than highest.

      Safi,please am not jealous of her and also unlike her,my husband works and brings in all the cash so I don’t have to work right after child delivery and always so I can care for my kids and hubby.I don’t need to brag,but by Jehovah’s Grace I am also educated,happily married for only 5years now,have 3kids.She is famous,am not.She may be beautiful than I am(depends on what people think) but am not envious of her as we all have life.Please I beg you,you can’t use marriage and kids to insult me even though but all thanks to Jehovah God.Also last but not the least,my hubby has a brush and white teeth(if you want to go more crazy,this is the fire you need).Oya start!!!

      Madam you mustn’t know the source of her husband’s wealth, so because she chose to work immediately after child birth it automatically means she’s the breadwinner? You’re really not soo smart! How much do you really think is in acting her type of Nigerian movies ? I know your type of people, hateful, scornful lot! Haven’t you seen married Hollywood actresses that act immediately after childbirth just coz they love their job? Why are you soo shallow in your thinking? It’s her anniversary and she can praise her husband if she likes. Btw is money everything? So you’re the type that if you earn more than your man it automatically means he is not worthy of your praise and adoration. You make me sick!

      Pls stop all dse.. Even if Mercy praises her husband.. That’s her right as a virtuous woman.. Let d husband be jobless from now till only God knows when….. It’s none of any body’s business… The main thing is Mercy is enjoying her marital life and trying to keep her home when she knows God loves her by giving her a very understanding crown for a hubby…. We all know what is going on afa marriage is concerned in film industry…. Many of them cannot can’t d divorce papers they have….. They divorce anyhow.. And mostly it’s cuz they want to go with big men in d society instead of hiding their heads…. So may God have mercy on us all

    hmmm… reading through all dem comments… I see people just unnecessarily give Mercy Johnson okojie Hate. Mercy is generous, kind hearted humble, easy going, passionate about her job, family, fans and has no beef with noHaters….she is one of the most hardworking celebrity in Africa, yet she get Hated by people who don’t even know her personally or meet with her one-on-one. anyone who has met with Mercy one-on-one has a beautiful tale to say about his/her encounter with her. yet Haters throws fire and brimstone at her whenever she does anything. Mercy is one celebrity who will never fight a Fan or throw shades on social media or anywhere just like Beyonce.
    maybe it’s because people feel threatened by her and her success and achievements in life and will do nothing but win all the time that is why they hate her and give negative thoughts and comments about her. Go Get A Life Haters… Cuz Mercy Johnson Okojie is here to Stay. the screen is where God has destined her.

      Madam Idris go on talking and yabbing,come on whilst I enjoy my desert.Look at how you are suffering?But you know her personally so I would end here.Take a chill,have some ice cream and think what you want to think.Each person and his/her level of insight.But first of all,after the wahala,eat some ice cream and and have some more Advil.The first dose didn’t help you.?.Of course she belongs to the screen.Like how would they eat?.The job application is ready here so that next time I know you are making money after serving your idol.

    I have your time today.what nonsense!people just tag u hater when you express your views even when done respectfully.Why??!We must all think,say behave aloud even don’t you criticize other people?Even Mercy does it.If you have gone through much life,you would know that even constructive criticism can be good and keep you on your feet.

    My own sister disliked my second wedding dress and some friends disliked my hair and makeup on my wedding day but did I brand them haters?No!If I were you I would have said they were haters and said that because I was getting married and they weren’t.But No!!!And besides even though some said it very harshly and I was pained,I took it in well and felt,that’s their views and that’s ok.So why are you so bitter like that.Bye ok,the less said the better.thank you it’s ok

      Shame on you liar. It is very obvious you do not have the life you are bragging about because if you do , you will not have the time and heart to put up negative post about someone else.

    I woke up this beautiful Sunday morning with all smiles and gladness in my heart. my love for fellow mortals is pure…why should I hate on someone or waste time arguing with people when I’ve got so much to be grateful for. Madam Awiase…sorry if I hurt ur feelings but ur comments were Disrespectful and just I reacted just like any rational loyal fan would.I am proud of Mercy Johnson Okojie and I will defend her anywhere. I got her back.
    I am proud of the Life am living… I need not brag bout it Cuz wealthy people don’t brag.
    Dangote, Bill Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, Queen Elizabeth, Michael Jackson, Beyonce/Jay never bragged bout their achievement…. so who am I to brag.
    anyways its a Happy and blessed day
    Show some love to the beautiful, incredible, amiable and super talented Mercy Johnson Okojie
    Happy Birthday Ma…
    we loving you always God bless ur new age.

      Safiyanu am also sorry I acted disrespectfully.i didn’t mean any harm,hate no one.What would I gain if misfortune befalls someone?And would God bless me if I wish that for someone?.No!Honestly speaking I didn’t mean any harm and only said stuff as I was quite angered.I wish Mercy’s marriage to last why?Even if she snatched someone’s husband,how do we know if she has asked God for forgiveness and has been forgiven?Also Odi’s ex wife has moved on with a new man and has a new baby.Why should this break?God has put together and no one should put asunder.May her marriage last.Also even if her hubby is indeed ‘unemployed’,and she cares for them,it’s not my money or business.Besides I know better than to trust everything said.The rest thank you all for your comments too,I love you all whatever you brand me and I would never use any thing marriage,work kids to brag,GOD FORBID!!Why? Because it can all go down at can lose it all..I know people who r living proof of this.its only God and by Grace.That was not my intention.thx
