Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has finally spoken up about the dress scandal that erupted last week during her birthday. She released pictures from a photoshoot she had. A lady who claimed to be a bride accused the actress of wearing a dress made for her wedding reception in one of her pictures. This caused an uproar on social media.
Although the actress has been silent on the issue, she finally spoke up and said she had no idea the dress was made for someone else and she felt sorry the bride had to go through the pain. She further said it was an error on the part of the designer and that she will involve her lawyer on the matter. In her words, she said
“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.”
