For those who do not know, Lovely Okojie is the first wife of top actress Mercy Johnson’s husband Prince Odianosen Okojie. She came into public consciousness when she raised the alarm in 2011 that the man actress Mercy Johnson announced she was engaged to and would eventually marry, was her legal husband…she backed her claims with pictures from her wedding to Odi a few years prior.
Mercy & Odi ignored her claims, and went ahead to tie the knot on August 27, 2011. They have a daughter, Purity. Since then nothing has been heard from Lovely until now when she spoke to Encomium Weekly from her base in Canada.
Lovely who is in her early 30s insists the episode which saw her husband leave her for Mercy is now history. Saying:
I have no explanation to anybody. Life is full of ups and downs. I have accepted my fate. The children are doing fine. I thank God for them.
When asked how she is handling the children’s welfare as a single mom, she replied saying, “Like I said, I thank God. I am coping well.”
