Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe was the brunt of a number of insults on social media yesterday after wearing a dress that was reportedly meant for another lady’s wedding day.
The lady had claimed to have provided the material and the styling for the dress, only for the designer, Rikaotobyme, to hand the cloth over to Mercy Aigbe for a photoshoot.
According to the bride, the designer didn’t send her cloth to her, instead feeding her some story about how the cloth got missing, and would give her one of her old clothes.
The bride actually believed the story, until she saw photos of Mercy Aigbe wearing her dress on Instagram.
In Rikaotobyme’s first statement since the issue began, the designer claimed that it was a dispatch error that led to Mercy Aigbe receiving the wrong dress, and not any sort of preferential treatment.
The designer claimed that both dresses were of the same color, measurement and style, which led to the mix up.
