Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson denies suffering cancer

Multiple award-winning Nigerian actress Mercy Johnson Okojie has refuted speculations that she is being treated for cancer.

According to her, such rumours making rounds on social media lack positive accuracy and were borne out of a misconstruction.

Talking about her health in a video available on her Instagram page, Mercy Johnson expressed gratitude to fans and friends for showing concern and reaching out to her with regard to her health.

However, the ‘Heart of A Fighter’ actress observed that her statement on the latest episode of her ‘Mercy’s Menu‘, cooking show, was taken out of context and completely misunderstood.

The 38-year-old thespian emphasised that she merely had thyroid issues and that she had not been diagnosed with cancer.

“Thank you so much for all of you who have been calling and sending messages and prayers. Thank you, I do appreciate it so much but I do not have cancer in Jesus name,” the actress said.

“I said I had a cancer scare. It means I had the swelling on my neck and my doctors felt it was something serious… and I have problems with my thyroid but I’m perfectly okay,” the mother of four explained.
