Dec 15, 2014 – Mercy Aigbe: My Phone Crashes Often Because I’m Addicted To Taking Pictures
In an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats, Mercy Aigbe Gentry addressed the fake designer rumour being passed around by her critics.
Hear what the mother of two said:
“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.”
On Why she takes so many pictures, Mercy Aigbe said:
“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.”
All she said is evident on her Instagram profile @mercyaigbegentry.
4000 pictures on one phone, isn’t that a little too much… Very strange obsession.
