Actress Mercy Aigbe, has finally addressed her birthday dress controversy.
The mum of two, who wowed in a red dress meant for a bride, talked about the issue via her Instagram page.
Recall, a designer had given Mercy a bride’s dress for her 40th birthday shoot. The dewsigner had then gone on to give the bride another dress, an action that caused the bride to call both Mercy and the designer out on social media.
Reacting to the issue, Mercy 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.
