When Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, suddenly deleted photos of her husband, Prince Odianosen Okojie, from her Instagram page in January, rumours spread that her marriage had hit the rocks.
Even though she suppressed the fears few days later by posting a photo of her and her husband in matching pyjamas studying the Bible in the bed, the rumours did not go away.
The actress, who is currently an aide to Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, has now spoken up, confronting the rumours in an interview with The Punch.
She explained why she removed her husband’s photos from her page and stressed that there is no problem in her marriage.
She said: “I did not feel bad when I read the news that my marriage was hitting the rocks because it was not true. I am very comfortable in my own space and I am not out to please anybody. I am always true to myself and I continue to be a happy person.
“There was absolutely no problem between my husband and me, I only deleted the old pictures on my Instagram page.
“They were old so I deleted them to post new ones.
“I am not letting my husband go; even when he is angry, I would beg him. You see these beautiful rings that he has given to me, I am never returning them.”
