Mercy Aigbe, Nigerian Nollywood actress who recently celebrated her 40th birthday, took to social media to share photos from the birthday which sparked an outburst from a Nigerian lady by the name @rettyprety on Instagram how the supposed dress which the actress was wearing, was her wedding dress. The lady also went ahead to give screenshot of chat between her and the tailor who sew the dress.

The bride claims that she paid the tailor for the material and the work she was to do, which the tailor showed her the finished work, only for her dress not to be delivered on the agreed date. She then saw the dress on Mercy Aigbe instagram page.
The actress although has not said anything about the dress or the claims of the bride, to which many are surprised and diverse opinion are given of how the actress should apologize or the tailor was the bad person.
The tailor by the name @rikatobyme, although has offered explanations on what happened. She referred to it as a mix up by the delivery man.
See what she wrote:
Our attention has been drawn to the ongoing chaos surrounding a dress and one of our esteemed clients on Instagram and possibly on other blogs and social media sites. . . .
We would have preferred if this matter was addressed directly to us for a quick resolution and to avoid the media frenzy, but unfortunately it wasn’t.
. . .
We hold our clients dearly and offer our services on first come first served bases with no iota of discrimination or insinuation of such.
. . .
We admit that a dispatch error occurred in the delivery of a dress to Miss Lawrentta, who was set to get married on the 30th December, 2017 and the pick up of another dress on behalf of actress, Mercy Aigbe. . . .
Please note that both dresses were of the same style, the same colour (red) and almost the same measurement.
. . .
On realising the error on dispatch, we quickly tried to rectify the mix up. But it was too late as the wrong dress was already on its way to Edo state for the bride to be.
. . .
We contacted the bride and explained we had an issue and asked if she would be comfortable with another dress, of same kind (which was the one meant for Mercy Aigbe), the bride agreed, so we allowed the dress to be delivered as time to recall dispatch was short in relation to the time of the wedding.
. . .
We have already apologised to Miss Lawrentta, but once again use the public fora to tender an unreserved apology to her and by extension to Mercy Aigbe who shouldn’t have been dragged into this.
. . .
We assure all our clients, past and future that our resolve to deliver top notch designs to clients within the country and beyond will not be compromised and the error that led to this unhappy situation has since been corrected. Thank you”
