January 7, 2017 – Mercy Aigbe Shuns BON 2016 Award Because Her English Is Poor – Critics
Mercy Aigbe Gentry Debunks Poor English Rumour, Refuses To Explain Why She Missed Hosting BON Awards
Few weeks to last year’s edition of Best of Nollywood award, Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe and comedian Okey Bakkassi were announced as the anchors of the event.
However, the Nollywood actress disappointed her fans and the event organisers when she refused to show up at the highly anticipated show.
Weeks after the event, there were speculations that the actress backed out at the last minute because her poor English could disgrace her in front of the crowd as she mostly features in Yoruba movies.
But when Saturday Beats reached out to her, the mother of two said she wouldn’t comment on why she was missing in action.
