Nollywood Actor Yemi BlaQ Reveals How Steph-Nora Okere, Mercy Johnson Helped His Acting Career

Nigerian actor Yemi Blaq has disclosed that Mercy Johnson and Steph-Nora Okere contributed to his success in his acting career.

He added that on his first visit to Lagos, Steph-Nora hosted him and gave him an overview of Nollywood’s operations as well as the things he needed to accomplish to remain relevant.


Yemi talked about how Mercy Johnson assisted him, saying that although he had long hair when he initially joined Nollywood, she had recommended him to chop it for a movie role because he had been given a unique opportunity.

In his words, Yemi Blaq said;

“The people who helped me while I was coming up were Steph-Nora Okere. She showed me the ropes. She was a good host when I came to Lagos.

She told me some things about the industry and how to comport myself. I will also say Meg Video Links gave me the chance to play my lead role. Apart from that, other people gave me chances in their movies.

I will also say Mercy Johnson (helped me in my early years in the industry). Then, I used to spot long hair and Meg asked me if I wanted to cut my hair for a role I went to ask her (Mercy), and she advised me to cut it. She said people have been in the industry for so long and they are looking for the opportunity that I have.”
