Superstar Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson has responded to criticism from some quarters for twerking on stage at a recent event.
Johnson was the host of the Glo Mega concert in Anambra State, and during the show, gave fans a treat as she twerked to singer Flavour’s hit song, Shake It.
The video went viral on the internet, and there were unsavory remarks that she shouldn’t have done, considering her status as a married woman.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, Johnson said only her husband’s opinion mattered, and that he didn’t mind.
She said, “I was only having a good time on stage doing my job. I was the host of the show and we have been to different cities thrilling fans. Is it a crime for me to dance on stage because I’m a married woman? I wonder why people like to take things out of context. Anyway my husband is not complaining, so I don’t see why anybody else should be bothered about it.”
Mercy Johnson married Prince Odianosen Okojie in 2011, and they have 3 children together.
We certainly don’t have any problem with Mercy Johnson twerking on stage, and you have to wonder who these people are that hate good things.
