Yes, I am razz and local – Mercy Aigbe schools Thisday Style on how to apreciate ”yoruba movie stars’ after she fails to make their Best Dressed List

    Yoruba movie star cum business woman, Mercy Aigbe-Gentry was unarguably and
undoubtedly one of (if not) the best dressed lady on the red carpet at the 2016 edition of AMVCAs. From
her hair to her makeup and to her studding silver beaded dress by House of Luminee, the mother of 2 came to slay – and slay she did!
However, Thisday Style didn’t think so. For today’s edition of their weekly ThisDay Style feature, the best dressed celebs from the AMVCA covered the front page and when it was posted on instagram…fans of Mercy Aigbe reacted….   Interestingly Mercy Aigbe who doesn’t hide her emotions (She queried the AMVCA in 2013 HERE for not inviting any yoruba movie star) reacted this way below:

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? …..is
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’ ….??????????
