What Toyin Abraham Wrote:

"Today, I want to celebrate two people in Nollywood. Events in time past try to make us competitors and we all know how fierce competition can be in the industry. The competition often lead to people in the industry taking sides thereby creating ecosystem of competitors and tear-him or her Down syndrome. Please it is time we celebrate ourselves more rather than compete with ourselves. We need to create ecosystem of more successful people so we can all have more capability to create more successful people. @realmercyaigbe , I celebrate the woman that you are becoming. You came to the boxoffice in December as a first timer, and you proved your mettle. You gave it your all. You have contributed to the story of strong women in Nollywood. You made many women proud. Thank you for writing a better story for womanhood when the world is busy writing a different narrative about women. You are a bonafide star. If you come to cinema in December, I owe you one post (Lol, you know I need to sell market o). Thank you for not making the competition in December negative. May God bless you more. BTW, you are doing a wonderful job on Michelle and Juwon. And may God keep you and your family. With Love T!"
