Actress Mercy Johnson has been reportedly banned from acting in any Nollywood movie due to the huge amount she charges for movies.
A colleague of hers told millsmusicent.com that she’s paid between 4 to 5million per movie. She is said to be the highest paid in the industry at the moment.
The ban will not take effect immediately as the actress has signed up to quite a number of movies before she was blacklisted.
Association of Movie Producers (AMP) and other stakeholders in the movie industry decided to call her to order by slamming a ban that will deter others from charging exorbitant fees like her.
Concerned fans in Nigeria have called on the Actors Guild AGN to resolve the matter.
Another report says the association decided to take this action, following the ‘unbecoming attitude of the actress as it affects her work.”
The leadership of the association has reportedly advised its members to release all the films that Mercy Johnson featured in, on or before January 2014.
