Without doubt, Mercy Aigbe has become one of the leading ladies of Nollywood in recent years although she has only been visible in the Yoruba section so far. Born on January 1, 1978, she clocked 40 this year but her celebrations were almost marred by the issue surrounding a dress her designer made available to her as part of the celebrations.
- The Edo state born actress, a second child in a family of five, Mercy, who was involved in a messy marriage crisis last year with Lanre Gentry, attended Maryland Comprehensive Secondary School Ikeja in Lagos.
- She got OND in Financial Studies at The Polytechnic, Ibadan, Oyo State.
- She also earned a Theatre Arts degree from the University of Lagos in 2001, after which she pursued her acting desire.
- She joined the industry fully in 2006.
Widely known for her roles in Yoruba movies, Aigbe has earned a reputation for her fashion sense in recent years, dazzling at many public events and her fans will be hoping she can follow the steps of stars like Monalisa Chinda, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Fathia Balogun (Williams), Kate Henshaw and others who have stayed relevant despite turning 40.
And with a long list of movies including Satanic, Afefe Ife, Okanjua, Atunida leyi, Igberaga, Ihamo, Ìpèsè, Iró funfun, not many will bet against her continuing relevance.
