There seems to be fire on the mountain as Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe Gentry was called out by a fashion designer, Phoonmy Afrika, on Instagram today, January 20, 2017 for failing to fulfill an agreement.
The seamstress had put up a picture of Mercy in an Ankara blouse accusing her of rocking one of her designs without giving her credit.
According to the fashion designer, she reached an agreement with Mercy and another actress, Jumoke Odetola but Jumoke fulfilled her part of the agreement and Mercy didn’t rather she tagged another designer on Instagram. She added that Mercy has refused to give the dress back after everything.
Mercy Aigbe however has denied such claims. According to her, the outfits was given to her by good friend, Jumoke Odetola. She wrote on Instagram in response to accusation:
“Goodmorning Fam!….. my attention as been drawn to a particular story trending, regarding this shirt, pls I will like to start categorically that I don’t know the said designer, I never agreed to tag her and she didn’t give me the shirt. The shirt was given to me by Jumoke Odetola as a birthday gift and when she dropped the shirt at my office, she never mentioned the designer and didn’t tell me to tag anyone. ………thank you all and have a blessed day.”
