Following the scandalous controversy that rocked actress Mercy Aigbe's 40th birthday shoot, the actress has broken her silence.
The bride, Miss Lawrentta from Edo state had accused a Nigerian designer, Maryam Elisha (RikatoByMe) of giving out her wedding reception dress to actress Mercy Aigbe for her 40th birthday photoshoot.
Lawrentta who lambasted Elisha for disappointing her on her wedding day asked God to judge the designer over the anguish she brought on her. Lawrentta had narrated how she had an agreement with Elisha and paid for the dress only to be disappointed by the designer who had given out her dress to the actress.
Although, Elisha had said the incident was as a result of mistake, but Lawrentta attacked her back calling her a liar who intentionally gave her dress out to an actress for favours. Elisha later apologized again.
Reacting to the incident, Aigbe took to her Instagram and 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."
