Celebrity marriage palaver have been in our faces for some time now. Unfortunately, we have had more cases of crises to handle than role models to celebrate. From the moment Tiwa Savage and TeeBillz washed their dirty undies in the media to the travails of the Ubi’s, Tonto Dikeh, and still trending, Mercy Aigbe’s battery case, many have wondered why these lovely celebrities who give people joy through their careers can’t seem to hold down such joy in their homes. But Mercy Johnson and a few others have defied that pattern, much to the praise of Nigerians.

The Kogi-born actress had while celebrating her awesome friendship with her hubby in a prelude to his birthday asked her fans to pray for her marriage so that she can have her man for like ‘forever’. Certainly what every other celebrity out there would wish for! But beyond the pre-birthday wish and all the love talk, Mercy’s craving for fan prayers for her marriage may still be a bit out of line, especially considering the turmoil some of her peers have gone through recently in terms of domestic violence, irrespective of the fact that the husbands (or wife in the case of Freeze) have been in denial of perpetuating such violence. While there may be no big deal in asking fans to pray with one on any matter, Mercy’s plea sounds more like a mockery of the situation of what others are going through, especially because we know that the success of her marriage so far is not because of her fans’ prayers, neither are the problems the others have faced being because of a lack of prayers from their fans.

Bottom line, Mercy and hubby should rather keep sharing the secrets of their longevity with their peers as a way of helping them rather than giving fans cause to worry over marital storms which they are not facing. Blissful marriages, whether celebrity or not, are not a product of social media prayers.

Contrary opinion very welcome.
