He said;

“MY NAME IS ADENIYI JOHNSON BUT THE NAME WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IF I HAD NOT MET MERCY AIGBE. OVER TIME, THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT HOW I ROSE TO BECOME A STAR. FEW PEOPLE THAT ARE CLOSE TO ME, KNOW MY SOURCE.

I AM NEVER SHY TO BE AFFILIATED WITH THE NAME, MERCY AIGBE. I HAD ATTENDED AN AUDITION FOR THE MOVIE, ‘THE RETURN OF JENIFA’. LUCKILY FOR ME, I WAS PICKED. I WAS TOLD I WOULD BE ACTING WITH MERCY AIGBE, EVEN THOUGH I WAS AN UP AND COMING ACTOR.

WHEN I GOT ON SET, FUNKE AKINDELE TOLD ME I WOULD BE KISSING MERCY AIGBE. I FELT SHE WASN’T SUPPOSED TO TELL ME, BECAUSE ACTING WITH HER ALONE GAVE ME TENSION, LET ALONE KISSING HER.”
