Mercy Johnson

Others will not dare but recently married, delectable actress Mercy Johnson and her good friend Queen Nwokoye are a different breed. Maybe it is the lure of appearing in their very first Soap Opera's or most importantly it might just be because they are doing it for God. But in these dangerous times, Mercy and Queen are leaving husband and family to head into the war zone of Kaduna to shoot a soap, titled CORNERSTONE. Also on the train is Grandson of first generation politician and nationalist Herbert Macaulay, and returnee actor, Wale Macaulay and Senior actress of Nigeria (SAN), presenter of 700 Club Nigeria, Ethelle Ekpe Aderemi.
Queen Nwokoye
The soap which tells the story of a dysfunctional family in search of God is to be directed by Reginald Ebere. Mercy also scores a first in the as she plays the role of a medical doctor.something she has never played before. CORNERSTONE is to be run as a daily soap and will be aired on National television. It is Mercy and Queen Nwokoye's first day time soap as they take a step into television. It will be shot in Kaduna and environs. The producer said " Because of the fact that they are actresses and play diverse roles, people do not understand that these young women are Christians and have a passion for God. Mercy and Queen are active Christains and are very involved with the work we are doing in Church. We have a film and television arm which they are part of but their schedules had limited their participation up to this point but now they have decided to put aside every other thing and do this." So producers if you are looking for these two, you have to brave Boko Haram and go find them in Kaduna because that's where they would be for the next two weeks. And do not worry that anything will happen to them, God protects His own.
