I started watching her movies onset but I didn’t want be Genevieve, I wanted be Mercy with the motivation that a Genevieve could give me. So I watched lots of movies. I don’t play with her movies. I don’t know what I can do that be better than what she has done. But I just try improve on it, try do it the way she do it and perhaps even better my own level. I practise all the time. It is like a passion. It is just where I want be. I am alive and I am in my space. It was paramount perfect that space. I everything. I watch everything. Nothing passes me by. I watch news casters reading there news and after they are done, I sit down the way they do and read the news like that. So it is practice and Passion,” Mercy said.

When we got to where she was, I became nervous. I told my friend ‘, let me hide in your boot’. And I did. I got into her boot. Can you imagine I came to see her and when I got there, I wanted to run back, I jumped into my friend’ boot. So when she came out of the hotel, I could not see her, I could only hear her voice. The second time I saw her was on set. When she came down and I met her, she said, ‘Ahh! Mercy, I like your movies’ and I started crying. I was in tears of joy and I said ‘Aunty Genny, so you watch my movies?’ She was sort of embarrassed. Before I met her, she had already known that there was somebody was crazily insane about her. She was really nice to me, receptive. And even whenever we work together, she will correct me and say, that thing you did, you could have done it this way. Usually in life, you will know somebody, is than you. Give him or her that respect. You can’t fight a battle you can’t win. It does not make any sense. If somebody is much bigger than you, there is nothing as big as you admitting it and hearing it that person. I didn’t come into the picture to compete with anybody. I came to learn, do it well, make it and be there” she explained.
