Popular Nollywood actress, Mrs Mercy Johnson Okojie has denied the claims that she has cancer, reassuring some of her fans, who were worried about her health, that she doesn’t have cancer but had a cancer scare.
Recall Mrs Okojie first opened up on having a cancer scare during a chat with Joke Silva on her TV show, Menu’s Menu on Thursday. Following the chat with Silva, speculations quickly spread that Okojie has cancer.
However, addressing the falsehood, the popular Nollywood actress posted a video on her Instagram page on Saturday night where she denied the claims.
Okojie in the video said her chat with Joke Silva was misunderstood.
“I do not have cancer. I noticed that the clip from my TV show, Mercy’s Menu has been flying around and they cut the clip. I said I had a cancer scare. It means that I had this swelling on my neck and my doctor felt it was something serious.
“I had problems with my thyroid. I am perfectly okay. It was completely misunderstood. I am fine. I do not have cancer,” Okojie
