Mercy Aigbe has finally given a statement, following a bride’s accusation which has caused a ruckus on social media. The accusation that her dress was given to actress Mercy Aigbe who wore it in her birthday photo shoot. According to the bride, the designer lied.
Mercy Aigbe took to her Instagram page some hours ago, to say this ” 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.”
