Mercy Johnson, a Nollywood actress, has spoken candidly about her struggle with cancer. The mother of four made this revelation in a Mercy’s Menu episode during a conversation with renowned actress Joke Silva. Her most recent YouTube cooking program episode featured the topic.
The Edo State actress Mercy Johnson claims that six months ago, she experienced a cancer scare. She and her husband had to talk about the new situation, of course. “I had my thyroid removed,” Mercy Johnson remarked. And because we have children, it was somewhat of a trip for us.
She added that it was a life-altering moment as she made the decision to have the surgery. Mercy Johnson further revealed that “they said I was going to be on medication for the rest of my life, and it was a reality we had to sit down.”
The beautiful actress explained that the diagnosis gave birth to a series of instructions and timing for her medication use. This is the first time Mercy Johnson is speaking up about the event of her health.
The conversation crept up after Mercy Johnson asked Joke Silva about her husband, Olu Jacob’s, health. Recently, other Nollywood actors have been speaking up about their various health conditions.
Nigerian singer and rapper Ikechukwu Onunaki disclosed his health condition on Tuesday during an Instagram Live session with Daddy Freeze.
Ikechukwu claimed he was suffering from an illness called a herniated disc and acute sciatica, which has rendered the right side of his body paralyzed.
Another actress, Kemi Afolabi, also said she had been diagnosed with an incurable disease called lupus. Lupus is an inflammatory disease where the immune system attacks its tissues.
