Brand influencer and Nollywood actress with over 7 million fan base on Instagram Mercy Aigbe, recently launched her YouTube channel Mercy AigbeTV and in a visual, she shared on Valentine’s day, she shook all the tables and everyone fell off it.
The mother of two urged married women to spice up their love life and not allow their men to have a side-chick. She didn’t stop there but further advised ladies dating married men to secure the bag by making sure the man gets them a house, car and plenty of money instead of doing love and collecting chocolates and flowers as the man is already taken and doesn’t belong to them.
The video has since caused an uproar on Twitter with some followers laying curses on the single mom, whose marriage to estranged husband Lanre Gentry crashed due to domestic violence.
See the reactions below…
What is mercy aigbe saying that toke hasn’t said before that you guys are bashing her for ??
All she said was if you’re dating a married man you had better be cashing out, because you can’t be playing games and not playing it right 🤷🏻♀️
To want end ?

Y'all are twisting what Mercy Aigbe said and you know it. She didn't say you should date a married man, but if you will or you already are, you should know it's not about love; it's about you getting the money. This doesn't mean she's asking anyone to date a married man.

My only problem with what Mercy Aigbe said is the fact that she has a teenage daughter. And she’ll likely watch this video. That’s all.
