Mercy Johnson’s Wedding: Lovely Speaks Again

The case of Mercy Johnson’s wedding to Prince  Odianosen Okojie has become one of accusations and counter-accusations. In response to Lovely’s claims that she is still legally married to Okojie, both Mercy Johnson and Odianosen Okojie have spoken up.Recently Okojie granted Nollywood gossip an interview in which he said he and Lovely were not longer married. We uncovered that in reaction to his statements, Lovely sent this written statement to linda ikeji:

“I read with sadness the interview Odi granted another online site, (that is if he really said those things) and decided to react. He said in the interview that our marriage was dissolved in 2007 because I was having extra marital affairs. He’s a big liar that has lost all my respect. How is this possible when our second child was delivered in September 2008? And how is it possible that our marriage ended in 2007 when we did our traditional in absentia in March 2009? Is it possible for a man to catch his wife having extra marital affairs and still pay her bride price? He paid my bride price in 2009 and I only recently found out he was also dating Mercy at the same time.

Odi also said in the interview that he has not been in contact with us since 2007. Did he really say those things? Linda, I sent you pictures of our son’s one year birthday in which he was present.
How come he was here in Canada, November 2008 to see the new born baby and left in December. He later visited in May 2009 and we celebrated our daughter’s 3rd year Birthday together @ Christ Embassy here in Canada . He came back in August 2009 during Pastor Chris programme and witnessed our son’s 1st year birthday. He was last here in December 2010.
I only started noticing a distance from him last year, and when I asked him what the matter was, he didn’t say, only for him to try to drag my father to court to sign divorce papers last month.
I heard he also said our marriage was an arranged one. How can, when we had a child before we wedded in 2006.
I am not trying to force him to stay with me, all I want from him is to respect me and my children and divorce me properly before marrying another woman.

Any thoughts people?

    @ lovely
    Glad you said this cause it was getting disturbing that you seem to want to lock into marriage a man who has openly shown he does not want to be with you. And you are right, he should divorce you properly. Please note that such is life no one wishes to be married and then divorced with two kids but it happens. you are not the first and wont be the last.

    The wrong you are doing here is attempting to make a mockery of another person’s marriage. You could have contacted mercy directly or stop with the scandalous pictures. there is no need for that. With life there is hope and you are bound to find you own happiness, but making ill of another is no way to open a path to your own happiness. Just a thought.

  3. I really understand how you feel. You feel betrayed. You should brace up and move on with life. We live in a society where men marry more than one wife not to talk of a prince from a royal family. I believe you would have contacted mercy and the prince with family members and discuss the issue with them. Mercy is a known actress and this scandal has made her life an object of mockery. Seems the prince has made up his mind, though i hope his love for mercy is not infatuation.A man that is not bold enough to tell his woman that its over is not a real man. Take care of your children and move on since he wants divorce or stay married to him and be out of his wife. I wish mercy a happy , but careful married life. The only advice i have for her is that she should look before leaping because a man that did this to another woman can equally do it to her. I rest my case.

  4. @ahley and 4peace, its obvious you guys are not sensible, a woman politely ask that she be divorced @least in a proper way and you guys open your filthy moth to call her names, may you experience a similar situation

  5. Mr prince,wot do u see in miss johnson d@ u did not see in mrs lovely ?hope u r not being blinded by her front n back.Which gentleman will see her n not b able to take hold of himself? Miss johnson,my hand don fall for ground finish! Abi u b husband snatcher? Mrs Lovely,if he wants a divorce, give it to him n moveon wit ur life but remember to keep ur legs crossed n ofcourse face ur lovely children,they are ur future

  6. Thanks tunde 4 helpn us put sm sense into @ashley nd 4peace heads,dos ladies shocked me @ wat they wrote nd I cn bet they’d do worse if they r 2 spend jst 1 day in Lovely’s shoes,what a world!

  7. Sharon and Helen, both of you said something very reasonable. Ur suggestions are very ok. Because Mercy Johnson is involved, everybody is saying one rubbish or the other. Lovely should just move on with her life. Its just very horrible for this to happen to her and her children. People are not interested in what happens to the children. If God is in support of the marriage,fine if not whatever happened to Lovely will surely happen to Mercy.

  8. I’m not acquainted with this story, whatever it may be, but from the mail to Linda Ikeji, I truly repect this lady called Lovely.
    Rejected by a man who lacked the guts to call the marriage quits, hence dragging her into this mess, all she asks is a proper divorce.
    Not to worry, God will make up for this embarassment and, its funny and silly that women fail to realise that what a man can do to a woman he took an oath and vow to love to the world, he’ll do much worse to another woman.
    Retribution comes in a package more colourful than an original occurrence.
    Only time will tell.
    As for some comments here, they ought not even be dignified with replies- desperate people tend to think alike without reasoning properly.

  9. It’s obvious prince odi married mercy bcos of what she is. “let me join the group of guys marrying stars.” No genuin love. As for lovely, she’s very immatured in behaviour. Why nt be patient, watch and see d result?There’s no man who trully love his wife and settle 4 anoda, no matter what she is. He’s been married to lovely, and also he’s a prince. Why didnt he marry all diz whyle? Men are dogs! Pls buzz off all. I’ve gt things to do wit my time.

  10. What goes around comes around. I can see something fishy about this Odi prince. He has bad charecteristics, lying. The man is a great liar. And Mercy be very careful with this man. One day you will regret. And if i may ask have u been married before or u have kids? Am wondering why u had to marry a man with kids and with aheir mom. I don’t doubt that one day he will go back to his forrmer wife, Lovely and put u to a big shanme! U made a mistake girl!
