During a recent media interview, she said she must not act many films in order to be recognised but anyone she does, she puts in her best in it.

These were her words:

“I can never lose my place or be displaced by anybody. My name is Mercy Johnson Okojie. I never have such fear. Nollywood is like a family; it’s a large field and nobody can take anybody’s place.” – Mercy Johnson

Mama Purity went further to say:

“Even though i don’t get to do many films, when i do one, people will know that Mercy has done this. It’s not pride, i’m just saying that i know who i am and i know what i’ve got.
So you can do all the ones you can and i will do the ones i will do. It’s not a tussle, i am very comfortable in my space. If i have to do one in three months, it’s fine as long as i have something back home that makes me smile all day” – Mercy Johnson Okojie
