You will recall that in October last year, this writer exclusively reported that Mercy J, as Mercy Johnson is fondly called, was pregnant. Though the story was true but events changed things.

According to a close source to the actress, Mercy has been asked questions by family members of Prince Odi on why she has delayed in giving them the fruit of marriage after their being married since last year.

Though her hubby, Prince Odi is said to be suppressing pressures being mounted on his wife by his family members, but the source confessed that there might be a limit Odi cannot go further on the issue, taking note of his people's culture and tradition.


"You that in Edo culture, the man's family has a lot of say in their lives, especially on marriage matters," the source told
