Mercy Aigbe Snubbed By THISDAY Style Mag On It's Cover Page, And It's Unfair!

Nigeria’s ThisDay Style magazine, which featured bread-seller-turned-model Olajumoke Orisaguna on its ‘most popular cover’ in February, today present Nollywood’s best dressed at the 2016 AMVCAs.

Surprisingly star actress Mercy Aigbe-Gentry, who was crowned ‘best dressed’ by many fans and fashionistas at that event wasn't on the cover. Neither were stylishly dressed Toyin Aimakhu, Funke Akindele and Iyabo Ojo.

The popular Edo-born actress took to her Instagram page to pour out her mind, asking if Yoruba movies aren’t part of Nollywood. Read below:

Hey Fam....so I just came back from church and decided to check IG only for me to see plenty tags on a particular pix posted by @thisdaystyle .....I read pple's comments asking why Mercy isn't on the cover and at first I wanted to waka pass, but on a second thought I decided to talk about it, cos it's been an issue dat has lingered for too long!.......I thought to myself why didn't Mercy make the cover of @thisdaystyle best dressed list?.... Has @thisdaystyle ever featured a yoruba actor on their cover?.........are yoruba movies not part of nollywood? .....is Nollywood not supposed to mean home grown Nigerian movies? .....hmmmmm I am very sure they didn't coz, they won't want to STAIN their cover with a 'RAZZ' 'LOCAL' yoruba actor!....Yes I am razz, Yes I am local and Yes I am a Yoruba actor!.....No I refuse to speak ur almighty English with fake British or American accent!....Because I'll always remain true to myself!...I am ME ....Proud Benin Woman, Proud Ijesha's wife and above all proud Nigerian. ...And just in case e still dey be una like dream 'LOCAL TI TAKE OVER' ....😛😛😛😛😛😛😛😛😛😛😛😛

Funny enough, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and OC Ukeje, who made the list didn't attend the event.
