As we all probably know by now, Nigerian actress and fashionista Mercy Aigbe recently turned 40 on the 1st of January 2018 and the event which was supposed to be a happy day was turned out controversial.
One of the dresses which she wore for her birthday photo shoot was said to be for a bride who cried out after she recognised her dress when Mercy Aigbe posted pictures from the photo shoot on her Instagram.
The issue lingered on and on with the bride calling out the designer and the actress for ruining her wedding day. The designer, Maryiam Elisha of RikatobyME apologised later, claiming that it was a mistake caused by a dispatch error, but Mercy didn’t say anything as she went to her normal activities.
However, Mercy Aigbe has finally decided to talk about the event as the controversy came too early in the year. She claims that she never had any personal meeting with the designer as she paid a stylist who arranged about 4 different dresses for the shoot.
She stated that the designer in question must compensate the bride and compensate her for the embarrassment brought to her name on social media.
She also apologized to the bride in her message and concluded that she has spoken with her lawyers to look into the matter and see how best to approach it from a legal point of view without festering an already open wound.
