Africa Magic’s family sitcom, ‘The Johnsons’ is a long running program that has aired on Africa Magic since 2012. The story revolves around the middle class family of The Johnsons as they strive to survive in Lagos and slowly become successful. It further emphasized a strong sarcasm which make the family unique and full of drama. It stars heavy weight actors Charles Inojie as Mr Lucky Johnson, Ada Ameh as Mrs Emu Johnson, Chinedu Ikedezie as Efetobore Johnson, and also a staple of the show, Susan Pwajok who plays the very popular character of Blessing.
Now, after a whole lot of years being on the show and playing this one character of Blessing, actor Susan Pwajok is now coming out to publicly explain why she left the show. There have been many speculations, rumors, and musings as to why she left.
Here is what Susan Pwajok herself had to say about her exiting ‘The Johnsons’
So, after years of people knowing her as Blessing, the little girl from The Johnsons, it came as a shock to a lot of people when they started seeing Susan growing up in front of their eyes. Susan is no longer the young girl she was when she started acting on The Johnsons. She has grown and gone through puberty so not only has her body changed, her fashion sense and personality have also changed and evolved over time.
People after seeing new pictures of her speculated that she ‘became wayward’, and ‘snubby’ which is why she left the show. Some other people have speculated that because of the way she looks now, her aesthetic no longer worked with the show.
One Instagram user after hearing and reading all these speculations took to Susan’s Instagram story to ask directly during a Q & A session writing:
“Y aren’t you acting “The Johnsons” again? M no longer seeing you abii you don dey form Big thug girls?“
Responding to the user’s questions, Susan responded to the fan saying:
you quws (your question) was making sense till you decided to spoil it. However, i’m not on the johnsons rn (right now) for personal reasons and i’ll appreciate it if you stop assuming different things, dw (don’t worry) i’ll be back on your screens in a bit
Well, there we have it. She left the show for personal reasons whatever those may be. In the mean time, Susan has continued to post more pictures and videos of herself, as well as featured in some advertisements and promotions for different companies. She’s not the first person to leave The Johnsons, not too long ago Samuel Ajibola who played Spiff also left the show and he also explained why he left.
I don’t know what’s going on over there at The Johnsons camp but I hope all is well. The show is still as funny and entertaining as ever though so while these cast members will be missed, the show must go on. What do you think about Susan’s exit from The Johnsons?
