Wedding dress saga: Actress, Mercy Aigbe finally speaks
By Rita Chioma,
Days after celebrating her 40th birthday in grand style and amid controversy over one of the dresses she used for the birthday shoot, Mercy Aigbe has finally addressed the issue.
According to her, she was unaware that the dress brought by her stylist was meant for another bride, whose wedding was almost got ruined over the incident.
Aigbe on Instagram page a while ago 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.”
