Recall that a few years ago, the General overseer of Mercy Land ministry, Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin came to the aid of Leo Mezie, and supported him with N3 million.
The president, Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) Mr Ejezie Emeka Rollas, took the actor’s case to the prophet where he got help financially.
