Fashion forward movie actress Mercy Aigbe found herself enmeshed in a drama on instagram over an outfit which she wore during the week. The actress had posted a picture of herself in an ankara top and a skirt tagging a designer whom her followers supposed was responsible for the outfit.
Well, those who were in the know stormed her comment section to demand that she give credit to whom credit is due. One “phoonmy_afrika” who it turns out is the real owner of the outfit also came crying fowl as she revealed that she had designed the top for Mercy to sample and give her due credit. The actress never gave her her dues neither did she return the ankara top.
See what she wrote below:
I’m hurt now o.
Sometimes late last year, Mercy Aigbe Gentry had an agreement with me through another actress to wear one of our shirts and give the credit to us on social media.
She sounded so sweet on phone on that day.
Yesterday, she wore it and didn’t do as agreed.
I even saw it on Valerie’ facebook group.
So I sent her messages on instagram asking her to do as agree and she apologised saying that she’ll fix it.
Today, she blocked me on Instagram, deleted our messages and then gave the credit to another fashion designer.
Can you imagine?
She mentiomed the skirt designer but didn’t mention mine.
This Top … she didn’t pay a dime for it.
I contacted our link and she told me Mercy said that she could return the shirt.
I asked her to return it sharp sharp and she said she’s not even returning again that I should do my worst!
Now Funmi’s friends have done all possible to nicely reach out to Mercy Aigbe Gentry on Ig, asking her to credit the REAL MAKER of the FREE shirt she was wearing but instead, she went on a deleting spree, blocking all who called her out to do the RIGHT THING.
Attached are some of the comments nicely asking MAG to do the needful but she wouldn’t let them see the light of day.
Mercy … She whom the gods will kill, they will first of first make mad, retrace your steps and do the right thing now.

After the designer’s outburst Aigbe removed the previous designer which she tagged, and so far she is yet to address the issue.
