Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has expressed his disappointment over her designer who hired a wedding gown for her 40th birthday, which was meant for a bribe.
“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.”
An aggrieved bride @rettypety, had called out her designer, Maryam Elisha (@rikaotobyme for giving out a gown meant for her wedding to the Nollywood actress for her birthday photo shoot.
Mercy Aigbe in a post via her Instagram page @realmercyaigbe said she had no idea the dress was for a bride as her stylist was responsible for the dress.
“I hired and paid Seun @styledbyseun for the photo-shoot 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.”
