Speaking exclusively to Kemifilani News in an interview, Emeka did not mince words at all when he said Mercy Johnson lives her life on Instagram hence did not officially pick a phone to inform them about her birth whereas Regina, on the other hand, called the Guild to inform them that she has given birth which informed their decision which was earlier criticized.

Here’s his full text;

‘People were asking why I didn’t visit or name Mercy Johnson’s baby too, but the truth is; I heard about Mercy Johnson’s baby delivery on the internet. She didn’t call to officially inform me. So, I see no wrong in visiting and honouring Regina Daniel’s baby.

We are not in competition with anybody but we will do as much as we can to bring everybody under one umbrella. If you think Instagram is your platform, no problem. We will leave you there. Every other day, we hear that an actor is sick somewhere and people call on the AGN (to help) and I tell them I don’t even know the person because they have never identified with the guild.

Some of them are not members and they take pride in criticizing the guild. The last time we had such an issue, the national public relations officer, Monalisa Chinda, gave a response. If you want to be a member, join us. Don’t just criticize us. If the criticism is in good faith, we would make amends. With good criticism, we will go far. We don’t have to take issues with anybody. You cannot be in the industry and refuse to join the relevant bodies. It is an aberration. However, we will keep creating awareness and talking to our people,’ Emeka said.
