So much ado about Mercy Aigbe’s birthday dress

Nollywood actress who clocked 40 on Monday, January 1st, 2018 has been lashed on the social media for using someone’s wedding dress her birthday dress.

The glamorous actress wore two fabulous dresses for her birthday party, but the red beaded bridal dress is the bone of contention.

A lady with Instagram name rettypety claimed that the dress is supposed to be her wedding dress.
She took to Instagram to narrate how the dress was contracted to a designer known as Maryam Elisha of Rikaoto By Me which was supposed to be delivered to her before her wedding on Friday.

Unfortunately for her, the dress wasn’t delivered and she wept throughout the day before she was given an old dress by the designer to wear for her wedding.

The bride who was just trying to overcome the disappointment was shocked when she went to Instagram only to see her supposed wedding dress on Mercy Aigbe as her birthday dress.

She wrote, “This was too bad. On the 29th of December 2017 which happens to be a day to my wedding, a greedy designer decided to ruin my big day. I cried all day no stop.

“I bought this lovely fabric from @bshani_bridalfbrics and asked her to deliver to this designer @rikaotobyme after I had concluded the style and price with @rikaotobyme I made a 50% payment to her as soon the fabric got to her. Told her it’s my wedding reception dress she assured me it will be ready on 26th. on that 26th I chatted her up to ask for my dress she replied saying it was ready as you can see on the chat above, she also said she will send a pics, eventually now sent a video d next day which was 27th u can also see that on the chat above.

“I sent the balance 50% to her on 28th when I had seen the dress and was satisfied, she couldn’t send that day cos all flights coming to Benin that day were cancelled. So we were now left with 29th a day to my wedding, I called her by 6 am that morning and she told me the delivery guy has gone to d park to send my dress that she will send the waybill details(sending details ) across shortly.

“I waited till 9 am no words from her. I started calling to ask for the waybill details she wasn’t taking my calls, at times she even cut the calls. I sent several messages no response at 1 pm, I started crying because the situation got beyond my control. My hubby, friends and family requested for the number and also started calling her but she obviously decided not to take any calls again.

“Until 4 pm when I was drained in tears she then called and was apologising that she didn’t know what to say to me that y she refuse taking calls, she continued saying the delivery guy she gave my dress to is nowhere to be found.

“When she heard how I was crying she then suggested to give me one of her old dresses for me to use for the day, I had no choice cos I was desperate I then accepted it.I got the dress on my wedding morning. I went on IG yesterdy only to see @realmercyaigbe wearing my dress with the same fabric I bought and she tagged the same designer @rikaotobyme.how much did she pay u to disappoint a bride on her wedding day? U are heartlessly wicked and u will sure not get away with this @rikaotobyme”

Mercy Aigbe is yet to say anything about the dress scandal, fingers are crossed waiting for her own side of the story.

This is not the first time the actress would be involved in a dress scandal.
