Fashion & Style: If you follow Mercy Aigbe on social networks, you know for sure she is into fashion and loves taking pictures, lots of it. Combing through the web of Nollywood news lately, the NMN team stumbled upon Mercy Aigbe's reaction to allegations of her wearing fake designer outfits and showing them off on social media. Nigeria Movie Network is gistin' the global Nollywood community!
The beautiful Nollywood actress who is popular in Yoruba productions, recently addressed the fake designer wears allegations in an interview published on Punch NG this month. Below is an excerpt from the interview we are talking about:
Q: Fans often abuse you on your instagram page that the clothes you wear are from fake designer labels; how do you react to such comments?
Mercy Aigbe: "I don’t care about what people think because at the end of the day, it is all about me. If you feel what I wear is fake, it is up to you; it is none of my business. I don’t need anybody to confirm the authenticity of what I wear. Whatever picture I post on my instagram account reflects my personality and I post them because I want to and not for comments’ sake. Most times, I ask how they know that what I am wearing is fake, how can they tell? When I read such comments, I just laugh because I believe they are coming from people who just want to hate me for no reason. The truth is that you cannot tell if my clothes are fake because you do not live with me and you have not checked them out. Some of them go as far as saying I can’t afford certain things and I ask how they know that. Do they know how much I have in my bank account or how much I earn? I don’t let such comments get to me." -Mercy Aigbe-Gentry

Mercy Aigbe was also asked by the same interviewer why she takes lots of pics. Here's how she answered:
Q: You seem to love taking pictures, why?
Mercy Aigbe: "I think it is because I am in love with myself. I am addicted to taking pictures. I love looking good and I love taking pictures because I love to see what I look like. Also, pictures are memories and when I am going through the pictures on any of my gadgets, they tell a story and bring back good memories. I am sure I have over 4,000 pictures in my phone memory and most times, my phone crashes because I have so many pictures in it. It is part of who I am and it makes me happy. I believe that people should do whatever makes them happy because life is too short." -Mercy Aigbe-Gentry
