A lady identified as Rettypety has revealed that her wedding dress was sold to Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, to celebrate her 40th birthday.

Rettypety said she bought the fabrics of the dress from a designer, identified as @bshfani_bridalfbrics and gave it to designer @rikaotobyme, who decided to sell it to the actress, giving her a substitute she did not bargain for.

The lady said she found out about the dress after the actress shared it on her Instagram page to mark her 40th birthday on Monday, tagging the same designer on it.

She wrote: “This was too bad. On the 29th of December 2017 which happens to be a day to my wedding, a greedy designer decided to ruin my big day.

“I cried all day no stop. I bought this lovely fabric from @bshani_bridalfbrics and asked her to deliver to this designer @rikaotobyme after I had concluded the style and price with @rikaotobyme I made a 50% payment to her as soon the fabric got to her.

“Told her it’s my wedding reception dress she assured me it will be ready on 26th. on that 26th i chatted her up to ask for my dress she replied saying it was ready as u can see on the chat above, she also said she will send a pics, eventually now sent a video d next day which was 27th u can also see that on the chat above.

“I sent the balance 50% to her on 28th when I had seen the dress and was satisfied, she couldn’t send that day cos all flights coming to Benin that day were cancelled. So we were now left with 29th a day to my wedding, I called her by 6am that morning and she told me d delivery Guy has gone to d park to send my dress that she will send the waybill details(sending details ) across shortly.

“I waited till 9am no words from her. i started calling to ask for the waybill details she wasn’t taking my calls, atimes she even cut the calls. I sent several messages no response at 1pm I started crying cos the situation got beyond my control.

“My hubby,friends and family requested for the number and also started calling her but she obviously decided not to take any calls again. Until 4pm when I was drained in tears she then called and was apologising that she didn’t know what to say to me that why she refuse taking calls, she continued saying the delivery guy she gave my dress to is no where to be found.

“When she heard how I was crying she then suggested to give me one of her old dresses for me to use for the day, I had no choice cos I was desperate I then accepted it.i got d dress on my wedding morning.

“I went on IG yesterday only to see @realmercyaigbe wearing my dress with the same fabric I bought and she tagged same designer @rikaotobyme.how much did she pay u to disappoint a bride on her wedding day? U are heartlessly wicked and u will sure.”

K1 To Sponsor Kid Artist’s Education

In what looks like a divine arrangement, Fuji Music Legend, King Wasiu Ayinde Mashal, popularly known as K1 De Ultimate has thrown his weight behind Oluwatobi Ilelolawa, the 12 year-old Primary Six pupil, who sketched President Muhammadu Buhari’s portrait with pen (Biro) without alteration few days ago.

Less than an hour after THISDAY Newspapers’ Brands and Marketing Editor, Raheem Akingbolu published the story of the boy on his Facebook page, K1, through his publicist, Kunle Rasheed, reached out to the writer. K1, the father of modern Fuji Music said he was touched by the story of the boy and offered to sponsor his post-primary education to the university level.

K1 described the boy as a raw talent that must be guided, supported and not allowed to waste.

“I was touched when the story was brought to my notice and I see it as one of those things one can do to impact the society. Education is key to success and who knows the boy we are talking about may be a governor or President in the making. He may become another Ben Enwonwu, Bruce Onobrakepya, Wole Soyinka or an international Artist of repute in the future. If the society fails to give him the needed support now, posterity will not forgive us. This is the time to lift a hand and groom a talent for posterity.”

Meanwhile, arrangements are being made to introduce the promising artist to his new benefactor and perfect ways through which his mentorship and sponsorship would be handled.

Na Una Papa Get Stroke, No Be Me — Nollywood Actor Mr Ibu Blasts Rumor Peddlers

Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, has debunked trending social media reports that he has been plagued with stroke.

The new media was awash on Thursday with reports that the 57-year-old iconic actor was hit by a mysterious stroke shortly after he returned from a trip to Owerri, Imo State.

The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, was even quoted as saying that “the actor was fast recovering”.

The sad news generated deep concerns from industry watchers, especially fans of the actor, calling for prayers and support for him.

However, in a latest video published on his Instagram Page, Mr Ibu, who is seen “loving up with his wife”, flayed the stroke report, saying he has handed those peddling the rumour to God.

He said: “Oh God! People are saying that I have stroke, that I am down with stroke. Why?

“How can you announce somebody’s sickness and you have many, you don’t even announce one.

“I don’t have any stroke please. This is my wife, my humble wife. Well, we hand over everything to God.

“I have been receiving calls from across the world, and I don’t know who is spreading this false news about me. I don’t know what they are saying. Na their papa get stroke.”
