Actress Mercy Aigbe, the great fashionista of all times who never takes a break in giving out beautiful fashion styles is at it again. She wows in a figure hugging mini dress with off-shoulder effect, whic wraps her voluptuous figure.
Mercy Aigbe is one of the gifted actresses in this part of the world. Her elegance and style have not only earned her mouth-watering deals that ran into millions of naira, but also, they have made her the favourite of producers of both Yoruba and English movies. Yet, the mother of one is largely considered as one of the most controversial actresses in the history of the Nigerian movie industry. Perhaps, before last year, Aigbe was not as she appears to be today.
Then she was seen as a viable actress, who holds a lot of promises for the industry. But not until early last year when she lost all that to controversy following her widely reported breakup with her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry. Aigbe and her estranged husband fell out after she accused him of infidelity and physical violence which she said affected her sight and caused her to bleed internally for over three weeks. Their break up saga trended on social media side by side with that of Tonto Dikeh’s crashed marriage.
But unlike Tonto Dikeh’s, Aigbe’s predicament, however,caught the attention of the Lagos State Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation Commissioner, Lola Akande, who reportedly dragged Mr. Gentry to court on a three-count charge of domestic violence, assault and threat to life. And the rest is history.However, while the buzz was still trending, the actress got everyone talking again following her 40th birthday outfit, which she shared on her Instagram page. For weeks, the Edo State-born actress was receiving bash on social media by Nigerians after a bride accused her of using her dress for birthday shots.
