Without a doubt, Mercy Aigbe is certainly one of the best dressed actresses in Nollywood. We can categorically tell you that during the just held AMVCA 2016, Mercy Aigbe was the only actress who trended on twitter for two whole days, not because she won an award but because of her spectacular look which many agreed and voted as one of the best looks of the award night.

Thisday Style shared a picture of their best dressed list today and surprisingly, there was no Mercy Aigbe and no Yoruba movie star on their list.


Due to many people’s disagreement with their list, especially the fact that Mercy Aigbe was not included, the Nollywood fashionista decided to respond below:

mercyaigbegentry Hey Fam….so I just came back from church and decided to check IG only for me to see plenty tags on a particular pix posted by@thisdaystyle …..I read pple’s comments asking why Mercy isn’t on the cover and at first I wanted to waka pass, but on a second thought I decided to talk about it, cos it’s been an issue dat has lingered for too long!…….I thought to myself why didn’t Mercy make the cover of@thisdaystyle best dressed list?…. Has@thisdaystyle ever featured a yoruba actor on their cover?………are yoruba movies not part of nollywood? … Nollywood not supposed to mean home grown Nigerian movies? …..hmmmmm I am very sure they didn’t coz, they won’t want to STAIN their cover with a ‘RAZZ’ ‘LOCAL’ yoruba actor!….Yes I am razz, Yes I am local and Yes I am a Yoruba actor!…..No I refuse to speak ur almighty English with fake British or American accent!….Because I’ll always remain true to myself!…I am ME ….Proud Benin Woman, Proud Ijesha’s wife and above all proud Nigerian. …And just in case e still dey be una like dream ‘LOCAL TI TAKE OVER’ ….”
