Giving a special shout out to all the single mothers for their effort to raise their child(ren) single handedly, the proud mother of two revealed the hell she went through when she gave birth to her daughter, Michelle who will be turning 17 very soon, at the age of 22.

According to reports, Mercy, who separated from her second husband last year over alleged domestic abuse, said she had to sell her jewelry just so she could pay for her daughter’s school fees and feed themselves.
