Mercy Johnson, Mike Ezuruonye, others thrill in The Feast

By Sam Anokam


Newly married actress Mercy Johnson, and Mike Ezuruonye recently renewed their bitter war of words in Nollywood, surprisingly not in real life this time, but in a new Nollywood flick where both stars played antagonistic characters.

Entitled The Feast and from the stable of Sea-World Movies, the duo who once had a real life altercation on set and avoided each other for months before finally settling amicably acted alongside Jibola Dabor, Akeem Rahman, Beverly Nayah and a few others in the fast-selling movie.

Produced by youthful Uchenna Nwankwo and directed by Michael Jaja, the suspense-filled make believe work of art thematically dwells on a prince’s insatiable appetite for power and mundane cravings as well as the unwholesome end result.

On whether he deliberately featured both Johnson and Ezuruonye, to further fuel their “cold war,” Nwankwo, the producer of the flick, currently topping Nollywood charts, said an emphatic no.

“We chose both Mercy and Mike because they were the most qualified for the lead roles, while we were casting and suggesting possible names. Again, I’m also happy that the movie has further bridged the existing friction between them. No doubt, they were sworn enemies in this movie based on their opposing characters, which I must commend, based on their professional delivery, but that aside, they were the best of friends while filming lasted in Delta State,” he explained.

The Feast, we equally gathered, was one of the last movies Mercy featured in before embarking on her controversial wedding to Mr. Odianose Okojie, an already married father of two. - Nigerian news, entertainment news, nollywood, naija, Nigeria, West Africa
