Nollywood actress, Keira Hewatch has revealed in an interview with Sunday Punch how her resemblance with Mercy Johnson has brought her blessings but also exposed her to derogatory comments from people.
Read the excerpts of the interview below:
Initially, I didn’t enjoy the support of my parents because they are religious people and they believed that the industry was corrupt and immoral.
They felt it was not a place for a Christian lady to be in. I understood their point of view but I had to do what I had always wanted to do.
I respect and love my parents but I also have to take charge of my life. Eventually, they came to see that and they have been very supportive of my career.
While speaking on her moment of breakthrough in the Industry, Keira Hewatch said:
I became well-known after I featured in the movie, Two Brides and a Baby, but I have done a few films that have gone straight to online television. Other movies I have starred in include In the Name of Trust, Murder at Prime Suites, Dinner, Lekki Housewives and Fifty, among others.
How her resemblance with Mercy Johnson has helped her career:
I used to get insulted for looking like Mercy Johnson. The last time I got insulted was when I starred in the movie, Two Brides and a Baby.
Since that time, I have not experienced such. Back then, it made me sad because I was being insulted based on something I did not understand.
Mercy Johnson is a beautiful woman and for anyone to compare us is really something to be thankful for.

‘Lekki Tollgate Is Not Sambisa Forest’ – Actor Frank Donga Reacts To Lekki Shooting
Nollywood actor, Kunle Idowu, also known by the stage name Frank Donga, has reacted to the shooting at Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
The movie star and comedian is of the view that the Lekki Tollgate should not have been invaded by armed military officers because it is not a warzone compared to Sambisa Forest.
Sambisa Forest, which used to be a site of tourist attraction in Borno state, has now become a place known for Boko Haram terrorist attacks.
Taking to Twitter to bear his mind, Frank Donga writes:
“Lekki tollgate is not Sambisa forest. The unarmed protesters are not terrorist, yet you sent armored vehicles and live bullets to them. 20-10-20”
