The talk of the town is still very much Shanty Town, the latest Nollywood series that hit Netflix and has been the buzz of the moment.

During a new sit down interview with Nollywire, reality TV star cum actress, Mercy Eke gave more insight into her character and how she felt when she discovered her role of a prostitute (ashawo).

Describing her character, Mercy Eke said:

“Jackie is a promising sex worker [laughs] There is no way you will put it. Jackie is a sex worker that got herself mixed up with Scar and got herself entangled with things that are not her business.”

Shedding light on her reaction, after finding out the character she was to play, she said:

“I just said to myself you just have to be Jackie and play Jackie. It was a sweet character, like it’s something everybody can relate to in our society today. Everybody can totally relate to Jackie. So when I read the script, I was like it is what I can do. Yeah, let me just go and show my acting skills with Jackie.”
