Mercy Aigbe: I worked hard to buy my house… no one saw the late night shoots
Mercy Aigbe has spoken out about the trending discourse on Twitter about the source of the funds she used in purchasing her house.
A few months ago, the actress acquired a house in an undisclosed location in Lagos.
Reacting to the speculation that a “wealthy man” funded the acquisition, Aigbe took to Instagram to state that she bought the house with proceeds from her hard work.
She described the claims as “stupid rumours” that lack any iota of truth.
The actress wrote: “No one saw all my late night shoots! Shooting almost 24hrs, No one saw my being on set back to back. No one saw all those times I carry Goods on my head in London, LA, New York, Turkey, Vietnam and all.
“No one sees my endorsements and influencing deals. Almost 15years as an Actor, I buy a house, they see it as a big deal! They try to tag every wealthy man they know to my success because they just can’t comprehend how and why a woman should be successful.”
In another post, she shared a picture of the house, saying it was “bought with my hard work and God’s grace (not that I owe y’all an explanation).
The actress added the “more is coming” and that “something huge is cooking”.
