Nollywood queen Mercy Johnson and her loving husband Prince Odi may be made for each other, but the actress wants fans to know that their marriage is not without the usual fight other couples endure.
The actress made this clarification after actor Uche Maduagwu dissed other women going through failed relationships, pitting Johnson’s marriage as the standard of what relationships should be.
According to the actor, Johnson’s marriage is successful because he thinks she is a ‘submissive’ wife.
Here’s what he said:
“You are a submissive wife and great mother @mercyjohnsonokojie Unlike some female celebs who disrespect their husbands mum, and destroy Properties…?? You have shown to us all that you can actually be successful in your chosen career?, and at the same time be a responsible wife at home.?? Sometimes, we just complicate things for ourselves as women when we ignore the needful?. God bless your Marriage dear,⛪”
Mercy Johnson disagrees with him.
“This is wrong on every level. Please don’t judge anyone until you walk in their shoes as our struggles are different,” she said. “No one is assured of a happily ever after but we all hope on God for sustenance,” she added effectively putting him in his place.
“Every marriage has its challenges and not even mine is Perfect,” she finished.
This conversation comes at a time social media has been full of stories of failing celebrity marriages, the recent being the sad drama surrounding actress Mercy Aigbe’s marriage to hotelier, Lanre Gentry.
For Mercy Johnson and her husband Prince Odi, their unique relationship reaffirms that love conquers. Often, she showers her husband with praises, calls him the “air” she breathes, and 3 children later, the duo still maintain an enviable bond, inspiring their fans.
