Mercy Aigbe is not just a celebrity but a very influential one, it's barely one week into the new year and the beautiful actress is already trending.

It all started when Mercy Aigbe released some really cute photos just before her birthday. In the photo, she is seen wearing a lovely red dress. Just when fans were praising and admiring the outfit, a certain lady, Maryam Elishacame out to call out the designer of the dress.

She claims to be the original owner of the dress, stating that she paid for it  for her wedding only for the designer of the dress to stop picking her calls barely 24 hours to her wedding.
