Mercy Johnson, a renowned actress, expresses her confusion about the origin of eggs, as many sellers attribute the high cost to currency fluctuations.

In a video, the actress expressed her frustration and questioned her fans about the origin of the bird that laid the expensive egg.

Mercy Johnson shared how she had planned to have breakfast but was deterred by the high prices of bread and eggs.

Considering the domestic origin of the chicken, she queried her followers about any connection between eggs and the rising value of the dollar.
