Nollywood diva, Mercy Aigbe-Gentey, says she will go to court over a mixup in dresses hired for her 40th birthday photo shoot by her designer, Maryam Elisha of Rikaoto By Me.
Aigbe, who had been silent since the scandal broke last week, explained the circumstances that led to the mix-up.
She, however, fell short of apologising to the bride, Miss Lawrentia, whose bridal dress was among the four hired for the actress.
Her post on Instagram reads: “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.”
