Mercy Aigbe has come out to speak for the first time over the controversial red dress she wore for her birthday photo shoot.

While granting an interview with TVC Entertainment Splash, the beautiful Yoruba Nollywood actress said she sympathised with the bride and feels she shouldn't have gone through what she went through in the hands of the designer, Rikaotobyme.

"I’m so disappointed in her because she did not handle the situation professionally. It’s all her fault and she needs to come out and clear the air and look for a way to compensate the bride and she also has to compensate me because I’m her client," she said.

According to Mercy Aigbe, she feels people didn't even wait to hear her own side of the story as she didn't even have any contact with the designer rather it was her stylist who hooked her up with the dress.
