Actress Mercy Johnson-Okojie revealed she only stopped dressing like a cheap h**ker after receiving some timely advice from senior colleague Patience Ozokwor.
Mercy, who was well-known for wearing clingy clothes barring sensitive parts of her body during her younger days, said the veteran actress convinced her to embrace decency for the sake of her future kids.
The mother of four confessed she was lucky to have received the life-changing admonition albeit, noted she learned the hard way.
“Do you remember when you were younger before you got married when I told you that the photos u take today, your children will see them tomorrow and immediately the kind of lifestyle you lived,” Ozokwor said during an episode of Mercy’s cook show, ‘Mercy’s Menu’.
Affirming the statement, the 38-year-old actress responded: “Yes you did, you told me Mercy dress properly, you will have kids and when they grow up, they will ask you, why are you looking this way, yes I remember, I’m lucky but still learned the hard way really”.
