"Why I opened a boutique"

Nollywood actress who recently launched her own fashion and beauty store explains her decision to open a women's boutique.

Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe Gentry launched the opening of her boutique  just last week December 7, 2014 called MAG Divas Boutique.

Mercy explains how she came about the name in an Interview with Encomium Magazine on December 15, 2014 saying "I got the name from a combination of my names, Mercy Aigbe Gentry and I added the Divas because all my customers are all divas. So, this boutique is meant for all my divas to come looking trendy and stylish."

The actress is unfazed by the critics who blast her for wearing counterfeit designer outfits, she is a proud owner of a women's boutique in Omole Phase 1, Ogodu Lagos.

The married actress revealed that the inspiration behind her deciding to open a boutique is because of her followers on Instagram. "What informed my putting all this together is my love for fashion. It all started from inspiration from my daily posts on Instagram. They say they always wait for my outfit of the day before some of them dress. So that actually motivated me to want to dress all my divas."
