Actress Mercy Aigbe has reacted to heavy criticisms she’s received since revealing her marriage to businessman Kazim Adeoti.
The actress has come under severe backlash since she shared photos of her wedding to Adeoti who’s reportedly married with children.
In the heat of the social media furore, Lanre Gentry, her ex-husband shared an old photo of himself, Aigbe, Adeoti and his wife.
The photo fuelled further rumours that the actress was dating Adeoti while still married to Gentry.
The issue was amongst one of many topics talked about on TVC’s “Your View” on Wednesday, 26 January. However, on Thursday, the show’s host Morayo Afolabi-Brown revealed that Mercy Aigbe had reached out to her to dispel some of the misconceptions surrounding her recent marriage.

Aigbe revealed that Gentry and Adeoti were never friends. She said the photo was taken when Adeoti her new husband invited her and other Nollywood key players to his birthday party.
“I spoke to her (Mercy) last night, she called me to correct an impression and that it is wrong for us to say, ‘how can she go and marry her ex-husband’s best friend.’ She said they were never friends,” Afolabi-Brown said.
“They only attended an event where her present husband, a marketer in the industry, invited her to his birthday party, which she had attended in her ex-husband’s company.”
Mercy Aigbe further said her new husband is a Muslim and hence is entitled to more than one wife.
“She told me that the man is a Muslim, he’s entitled to more than one wife. So yes, he has issues with the first wife. And he is now married to her as the second wife. And as a second wife, doesn’t she deserve to be happy? ”
Mercy Aigbe only recently revealed she’s now married to Kazim, a businessman and investor/partner at Ibaka TV. Ibaka Tv is an on-demand video platform for Nollywood movies.
The actress split from her former husband Lanre Gentry in 2017. The marriage ended amidst allegations of domestic violence and infidelity. They share a son, Juwon while Aigbe has a teenage daughter Michelle from a previous relationship.
Adeoti is also married to another woman and they share four children.
