Mercy Johnson’s Wedding Controversies. Prince Odianosen Okojie Speaks Up

Given the recent controversies over the marital status of Mercy Johnson’s fiance. He, Prince Odianosen Okojie decided to clear the air by telling his own part of what has become a rather messy story. When interviewed by Nollywoodgossip,  Prince Odianosen Okojie  stated without reserve that his relationship with Lovely Okojie ended in 2007. Below is an excerpt of the interview:

 A lady called Lovely Okojie claims to be your legally married wife. She said in an email to us that you’re planning to marry another wife without her knowledge and consent. Is that true?

Thanks for asking the true state of this scandal, yes I know the said Lovely, she is not my legally married wife anymore, the pictures and relationship she is talking about was dissolved in 2007.

Yes I am planning to marry another wife and seeing we’re not together since 2007, I don’t need her consent.

Once and for all, clear the air about your relationship with Lovely Okojie. Are both of you dating, married, or divorced, what’s the situation?

My early answer to your question says it all; I am no longer with her.

Lovely Okojie said on the phone with one of our reporters that you told her that Mercy Johnson was just a business partner and that you were in Nigeria to do some contracts and suddenly she started reading online that you’re going to marry her. Is that true?

We broke up in 2007 when she was having extra marital affairs, after the demise of the relationship, I relocated to Nigeria, and later heard she has moved to Canada, I can’t be living with her when she is based in Canada and I have been living in Nigeria all this years.

I met mercy in 2008 and we’ve been dating since then, Lovely surely knows why she is coming up with such lies to destroy my relationship, because I told her about this wedding myself last year 2010.

She supplied us evidence of your marriage to her and photographs of you playing with your lovely kids – and that touched the hearts of our readers. What do you have to say about that, are the proofs real?

Yes they’re real pictures taken long time ago, I love my kids and I always try to be in contact with them.

How long have you known Mercy Johnson (by known we mean dating her)?

Since 2008.

Some of our readers said that it’s ok for a prince to marry many wives, but isn’t that usually with the consent of the other wife (wives)?

I am not a polygamist, and there’s no other wife or wives consents here, I love Mercy and that’s all.

Many are asking why Lovely Okojie waited for so long before taking her fight public, and we also got some information that some people may be behind this, could this be true, and if so, who and who do you suspect may be out to ruin your name and marriage and why?

I am shock to read her claims as well, it is very obvious she wants to ruin my relationship and present happiness; I don’t have any proof of people being behind her to tell these lies.

Many people are concerned that after marrying Mercy Johnson, you’ll want another wife, tell these readers your mind directly about marrying Mercy Johnson, will you be marrying another one soon after her?

I am not a polygamist, like I said earlier. I love my Mercy and that it.

Tell us a little about yourself.

There is nothing to say about me, I am just me and it’s not the right time to be talking about my person, I only responded to these ridiculous claims from my past.

Is there something we didn’t cover in the interview?

Just wanted to state clearly here, this lady in question [Lovely]  was in Italy and now relocated to Canada,  I am not living with her, and all that happened was in Italy years ago before I relocated to Nigeria where I found my happiness in Mercy.

Who is lying? Who’s telling the truth?? Is this another “Wigwe family tale”? What do you think?


  1. Women no dey shame self. Where was this lady all these years? She accepted the divorce in the first place so why coming back for what she already rejected? But let us face the fact guys, I think Prince failed to define his divorce clearly because if he did,I don’t see the reason why this lady will come back and secondly he should have let Mercy Johnson know everything about his past instead of waiting till the whole story bursts out.

  2. Well, this has gotten beyond hand. I tink dis lady should just let d screen diva( mj) nd his charmin prince live their she d only woman dat Has kids, everybody dey born their own. Abroad women too dey do. Maybe cold don enter dis woman head again.

  3. This Prince guy is a liar!! Gosh, Edo men are all the same. You heard she relocated to Canada?? Yet you’ve visited her 3 times in Canada. You were there december 2010 for your son’s birthday. Abeg save that gist for someone stupid. Folish wowo man! Ugly thing!

  4. This prince charming has not stated categorical if he has divorce lovely n where is document? Why is he still visiting lovely in the pretence that he is visiting the kids? Mj pls beware of married men there are wolfs in sheep clothing. Sooner or later he will consider making peace with lovely with the excuse of protecting the childrens future.

  5. Why is dat some of Nigeria Female Actress like be a second wife instead of first lady in their matrimonial home. Cos de ve mess their self up with there producer and so call actors. In term of marriage like this u will see them going out with any man’s wife 2 be there husband claim dat is there lover or husband 2 be. Exactly what happen 2 Ini Edo will equally Happen 2 Mercy Johnson.

  6. U never can tell who is lying and who is saying the truth b/w both of them. It is only God and time will tell at the end. But wait a minute why must all this our Nija actress always going 4 married big boys abroad? Is a shame that non of them acting local village love can actually face it in real life. mercy j should be ashamed of self 4 messin up herself with a controversial prince from edo,when there are many handso me big boys dat are willing to settle with her, and she is there fighting with another woman over a common prince. their problem is dat non this actress want a true love,they are busy looking 4 already made husband to snatch from their wife so all successful married women beware of this noollywood snatchers called actress
