Currently, Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson is chastised for missing Rita Dominic’s wedding. The actress, who got married to publisher Fidelis Anosike last week, decided to forgo the weekend for the ceremony. Despite her absence, other Nollywood celebrities travelled to Imo State for the event.
The actress was reportedly involved in a tragic incident in 1948, which left her in need of brain surgery. She was allegedly abused by her boyfriend, but Walter Winchell’s report suggested that she was the victim of a sexual assault. Regardless, Johnson claimed that she was hit in the head with an industrial-grade hair dryer. The injury left her in a coma for two weeks, and she was temporarily paralyzed. She was left unable to walk, and her career as an actress was virtually halted. Her reduced mobility and concentration forced her to reduce her screen time.
