Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson Okojie, has revealed how veteran actress, Patience Ozokwor, made her quit indecent dressing for her children’s sake.
She revealed this during a conversation with Ozokwor on this week’s edition of her weekly cook show, Mercy’s Menu.
Patience Ozokwor had asked her if she remembered the advice she gave her some years back on her dressing. Mercy acknowledged saying she told her to dress properly because of her children.
Ozokwor said “Do you remember when you were younger before you got married when I told you that the photos u take today, your children will see them tomorrow.”
Mercy Johnson replied, “Yes you did, you told me Mercy dress properly, you will have kids and when they grow up, they will ask you, why are you looking this way, yes I remember, I’m lucky but I still learned the hard way really.”
During the show, Patience Ozokwor also disclosed why she did not marry after losing her husband years ago.
“I wanted to remarry but my kids had already come of age and they pleaded with me not to marry another man and they promised they will be my husband. They asked me to stay single for them so their friends will not laugh at them that at their age their mum remarried.
“I understood them, though it was selfish of them but I paid the huge sacrifice for them, no sacrifice is too huge for family.”
