Mercy Aigbe and fans blast This day style after fashion cover snub!


This day Style snubs Mercy Aigbe.
Mercy Aigbe is one of the best dressed Nigerian celebrities full stop! So why should it matter whether she speaks with a cool accent before this is recognized?Mercy's recent outfit to the just concluded AMVCA 2016 was the best of all those who graced the red carpet.Maybe Lilian Esoro who looked amazing too will give her a run for her money that night.So how can any Magazine who rates itself as credible have a list of the best dressed and
leave Mercy out on that night?

We suffer from tribalism and colonial mentality a lot in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.I don't know if tribe played a part this time,but inferiority complex certainly does.For some weird reason,certain people think the Yoruba genre of Nigerian movies is not credible.They see them as down market and not hip enough,so they don't take them seriously.In fact when some jokers talk about Nollywood,they don't mention the Yoruba actors.How can they be part of Nollywood? Can they speak English? This is so sad...

Mercy Aigbe's response to the snub by This day Style was quite interesting and i agree with every word she said.See it below...

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' ....😛😛😛😛😛😛😛😛😛😛

Apart from the AMVCA night,Mercy always slays.She looks good with regular consistency and is really a style icon.It is an outrage that she has not been recognized by This Day Style.Going back to Mercy's reaction,is it a coincidence that of the 15 celebrities on the cover on their magazine,not a single one is from the Yoruba Movies genre? Food for thought.
This below is the cover of the magazine which got people talking online...You can further on also see some reactions of some Nigerians on social media.
