Mercy Aigbe has found herself in the middle of a controversy after a letter surfaced online that her house which was celebrated on social media was bought by her “sugar daddy”.
In the letter which was written as a Nollywood open script, the house she claimed to have put in 15 years of her hard work to build for herself, is a lie as it was a gift from her sugar daddy governor who many have alleged is the governor of Lagos state, Governor Ambode.
Since the news broke, it has set Nigerians tongues wagging:
The most ironic are the women that push these unwholesome, disempowering narratives about felllw women. Because if/when you succeed, you will understand better. pic.twitter.com/MfRDrgTzeT

That Mercy Aigbe, Toke Makinwa gist is trash. All you girls pushing the narrative are stupid. Do you know how many endorsement deals these women have bagged, businesses they run? If it was a guy that bought a house, would they be dragged like this???

Kylie Jenner not up to 20 years old buys a house, you all celebrate her. Mercy Aigbe over 30 years old buys a house, you all scrutinize her and want to know her source. Buhari and the government are not out problem! We are our own enemy!

The funny thing about this Mercy Aigbe saga is that no one is talking about Ambode.
It’s always the woman

Others are surprised:
Lol see me thinking Mercy Aigbe hustled to buy the house
No wonder Aremu Afolayan said it all about the flamboyant lifestyle of some Nollywood actors and actresses

If Ambode truly bought houses for Mercy Aigbe and Toke Makinwa, he deserved what happened to him in Lagos. The money will surely come from the purse of Lagos state.

Others are concerned about other issues:
the kind of topic that trends on Nigerian twitter honestly beats my imagination.There is a lot of issues like social,economic,political etc plaguing of country and we are more concern about a politician buying mercy aigbe a house.#ourmumuneverdo?#MercyAigbe #ambode

Out of all the Nigerian problems and political saga, it is Ambode buying Mercy Aigbe that is concerning Nigerian and social media! Let’s leave Mercy Aigbe alone abeg. She is a successful business woman that has paid her dues in the industry and beyond
