In what could be described as 1 of the most talked about Nigerian Weddings in recent times (…all those controversial stories that refused to simply go away), Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson married Prince Odianose Okojie yesterday in Lagos at the Christ Embassy Church, Oregun, Lagos. Pastor Tom was the officiating minster. The  traditional wedding held the day before (26th August,2011) at Iyana Iba, Lagos.

Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson was Mercy‘s Chief Bridesmaid and the Bridal train had Waje, Empress Njamah, Chika Ike, Queen Nwokoye, and Goldie.

Genevieve Nnaji, Emeka Ike, Jim Iyke, DJ Jimmy Jatt, Majid Michel, Segun Arinze,Chinedu Ikedieze, Keneth Okonkwo, Patience Ozokwo, Francis Duru, Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly and many others attended the wedding.

The wedding train then moved to 10 Degrees, venue of the reception with AY as MC, DJ Jimmy Jatt on the turntables and Godbless Band and Navy Band providing live music.

Press cameras weren’t allowed at the wedding and we would like to thank everyone who sent these in (and twitted them). Kindly enjoy these pictures till the official ones come out.

  1. a white suit…?well i’m not sure about it but he didnt look bad and MJ too, all that cleavage, lol. I would say I’m happy for them but under the circumstances surrounding this marriage, hmmmmmmmmmmm…

    Then is there rev.Tom and pastor Tom?
    I’m kinda confused..I knew a fair complexioned rev.Tom with chubby cheeks..

  3. Rubbish. If this man fit can abordon his children to marry this pro, he his satan. Mercy do your juju well because this man eye nor settle.

  4. Mercy you are indeed shameless. How can this fake prince even marry a prostitute? Am sure he his into 419 or after Mercy’s money. Bastards. What will happen to your childre. They cant even come to your house because its obvious Mercy will not accept them after all there mother did to stop her wedding. Prince Okojie, me too I be Okojie from Uromi, you nor say you be fake royalty?

  5. Mercy,u colect anoda prson luv,dnt 4get dat anoda prson wil do dat 2 u,pls dnt swallow d prince with dat ur big nose,

  6. thank God my Oga lost out finally. He has on one of his carefree times whispered to me that he is putting everything in place to lay this well endowed actress. In short, he had said that MJ–who do not even know him personally, beside may be on the news–will warn his bed even if it cost a million dollars.,

  7. Kai! Nawa o, how well do we know them? We can’t rely on the media all the time nah. They might be in love really…and nobody knows for sure what’s going on in there.

  15. Evry dat is saying dat d man has been married shd read d book of Esther chp 1 nd 2. If this woman wanted her husband back she would have known what to do than making it a public matter, how many men will condone that. MJ let d will of God be done in ur marriage. Let d Prince be wrectched but I know that d bible says that he that findeth wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from God so MJ might be his wife. Tatafos leave d matter for, make una try remove d specks in ur eyes b4 u see MJ log. The Prince wore d shoe he knew where it pinched him b4 he pulled it off. MJ follow d principles of God concerning marriage nd u will not fail. God bless ur marriage

  16. congrats mercy, may the Lord run your marraige for you. trust me he is the only one who can make it work. try telling him any problem you have bcos as they say there must always be fights between couples ‘i dont know why’ but it is the truth. may He bless you with every blessings that comes with being married and you shall excel. just keep serving him in spirit and in truth and you wont regret.

  17. You are a bunch of haters. they are just jealous of your wedding, you look hot, sexy, god bless you and your familly MJ, i wish you all the best in life.
