Nollywood yoruba actress Mercy Aigbe has finally opened up on her controversial birthday dress that went viral and got everyone talking on social media.
It can be recalled that the mother of two celebrated her 40th birthday and payed a stylist to style her. Mercy who said she never had any direct dealings with the designer who made her dress let alone knowing that the dress belonged to a bride, woke up to find crazy comments on her Instagram page.
The movie star says all transactions as regards her dress was done by her stylist @styledbyseun and that she has never met the designer @Rikaotobyme. She wrote:
”I have followed events as they unfold following a particular dress I wore for a photoshoot. First, I must say that I sincerely sympathise with the bride as this situation is painful, unfortunate and regrettably avoidable. I hired and paid Seun @styledbyseun for the photoshoot as a stylist and got four dresses for the shoot. Seun and I were unaware that one of the dresses was meant for someone else. I am embarrassed that the designer was not professional enough in handling events leading to this moment. It is also painful that a bride is made to go through what the bride has been made to go through. I have reached out to both the stylist and designer (whom I have never met nor HIRED directly) to express my displeasure. I have instructed my lawyer to look into this and see how best to approach this from a legal point of view without festering an already open wound. Thanks.”
