First few days into the new year, a dramatic event involved sought after Nollywood actress and fashionpreneur, Mercy Aigbe, a designer – Rikaotobyme and a bride @rettypetty on instagram. The January born actress wore a certain red dress made by the designer for her 40th birthday photo shoot, a bride later bursted out on the gram that the dress was hers. She revealed the entire story of how the transaction went with the designer, she lamented bitterly on how the designer had lied to her about a logistics challenge had stalled its transportation to her in Benin. The bride narrated that the dress was meant for her wedding reception.
A ton of ugly comments was thrown at Mercy Aigbe for not saying anything about the red dress and not taking down the photo of the dress. Following an apology by the designer and a statement by Mercy Aigbe’s stylist absolving her of any fault, the actress has finally opened up on the case, saying that it was all the designer’s fault.
She made this known when she was a guest on TVC‘s Entertainment Splash on Tuesday.
Speaking on the issue, Mercy Aigbe sympathized with the bride, adding that no one should go through what she (the bride) went through.
She added that her lawyers are on the case, saying: “The designer put me in a very embarassing situation and my lawyers are on it.”
I’m so disappointed in her cos she did not handle the situation professionally. It’s all her fault and she needs to come out and clear the air and look for a way to compensate the bride and she also has to compensate me because I’m her client.
She lamented the fact that people began criticizing her without hearing from her, saying she had no contact with the designer and all transactions were made by her stylist.
