Recall that it had been earlier reported on how the movie star spoke on her cancer scare and how she has been placed on treatment for life.
The Nollywood actress decided to clear the air in a new video posted on her official Instagram page on January 14, 2023.
In the new video, the mum of four showed her heartfelt gratitude to people who had called and sent her prayers over the worrisome news.
According to her, she is fine and does not have cancer. Mercy added that the old video was a clip from her show, Mercy’s Menu, and it only showed a bit of what happened.

In her words:
“Hi guys, Okay so first and foremost, thank you so much for all of you who have been calling and sending messages and prayers, thank you I do appreciate it so much. But, I do not have cancer. I noticed that a clip from my TV show, Mercy’s menu, has been flying around and I think they cut the clip. I said I had a cancer scare, it means that I had this swelling on my neck and my doctors felt it was something serious. I had problems with my thyroid, I am perfectly okay. Thank you so much for all of your calls and your messages, the phone has been buzzing like crazy, I am perfectly fine and I do not have cancer. I am perfectly okay. So thank you so much for checking up on me, thank you for sending those messages. Go back and watch the clip, it was completely misunderstood, I am fine, I do not have cancer in Jesus name, thank you guys so much.”
