While there have been arguments over the list being an Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) edition or just a 'best dressed' list, fans don't think This Day was being fair.

Cleary not pleased with the result, they trooped to ThisDay's Instagram page to vent their fury.

Read: Mercy Aigbe "Are Yoruba movies not part of Nollywood?"

One angry fan wrote, "Even as Nollywood's best dressed (not AMVCA) @mercyaigbegentry should really be on that list. That lady ALWAYS steps out well put together."

Another fan with the username @temidayobadmus expressed his displeasure at the marginalisation of indigenous movie actors.

According to him/her, "For so long, d indigenous movie actors have been marginalised. Imagine a well dressed mercy Aigbe was ignored by @thisdaystyle not bcos she is a bad actor or anyone could fault her dressing but, bcos she speaks Yoruba and acts in Yoruba movies. I insist there is problem with this generation. We condemn what God gave us all in d name of embracing that of d white man. Dis is nothing but madness! It's not d 1st time Yoruba actors have been marginalised from the so called Nollywood."
