We wished Mercy Aigbe an Happy birthday 🎉🎂🎁yesterday and even complimented ‘her’ beautiful gown… only for an Instagram user @rettypety to call out the designer @rikaotobyme for stealing, disappointing, lying and giving her wedding reception dress to Mercy Aigbe.
‘Rettypety’ explained how the fabric seller delivered the fabric to the designer, how she paid the initial 50% deposit, how the designer told her she gave the dress to a delivery guy and how the designer eventually stopped picking her calls.
She also shared screenshots of the chat she had with the designer and the designer even sent her a video of her dress.
On her Instagram post, @rettypety said…
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
its 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 y 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
yesterdy 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 not
get away with this @rikaotobyme.
Mercy or the designer hasn’t said anything about this. For a brand as big as Mercy’s, this is really disappointing, I hope Mercy Aigbe didn’t know about this cause it won’t be a good look on her.
As a service provider too like the designer, what she did is simply wicked and no excuse is enough to let this just slide. Mercy is a top Actress and all the blogs will definitely post these pictures, did the designer think the Bride won’t see it? Show’s her intention all along.
