Nollywood Actor, Adeniyi Johnson has revealed that he was scared when star actress, Funke Akindele told him he would be kissing Mercy Aigbe in a movie.

Johnson made this revelation while speaking during the 42nd birthday celebration held recently for Mercy Aigbe.

In a video of the event shared on Mercy Aigbe’s YouTube Channel, Johnson stated that the kiss he gave Mercy Aigbe brought him to limelight as an upcoming actor. 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.”

Johnson added that he had to check if his breath didn’t smell.

“I had to check my breath every now and then. She (Aigbe) acted the role of my girlfriend in ‘The Return of Jenifa’.

“I think she saw what other people didn’t see in me. She told me I did well. The first sub-lead I ever played was given to me by Mercy Aigbe. I would continue to make you proud. Thank you for allowing God to use you for me,” he added.
