Nollywood actresses, Mercy Aigbe and Toyin Aimakhu turned Abraham are among the most talked about personalities in the Yoruba movie industry and it is so funny that these actresses aren’t really Yoruba. In fact, they are both from Edo state but have found popularity and expression of talent in a language that although isn’t theirs, chance has given them great platforms.
In this post, we would be discussing why these actresses are the most talked about and if they have kept up with the expectations of the people talking about them.
Starting off with Toyin Aimakhu turned Abraham, the talented actress came into the movie industry by chance through her affiliations with Nollywood actress Bukky Wright and over time the actress has proven herself worthy of the love of her fans by going all out to interpret the roles given to her.
One of the things that made Toyin Abraham one of the most talked about actress in Yoruba Nolly is her relationship with alleged criminal, Seun Egbegbe. The actress who dated Seun Egbegbe for a while, broke, only for her name to be dragged every time Egbegbe engages in criminal activities. The publicity although not good for her, it has kept her name on the tongue of many.
Mercy Aigbe (Gentry). The ‘Gentry’ was placed in the bracket because we are not sure if there would be a reconciliation soon or not. Mercy Aigbe is although popular in Yoruba Nolly, she is from Edo State. The actress so far has gained her popularity from slaying her way into people’s heart.
With a Mag_divas outlet, the actress has inspired a lot of people through her fashion, but of course, that is not the main thing that is keeping her relevant in the industry as nothing sells faster than controversy and these actresses one way or the other have built their careers around it.
The belief that Mercy Aigbe’s relationship is abusive is one thing that is selling her market, but then it was a thought that recently became a reality when the actress revealed that all her packaging were just that… packaging as her husband has been giving her “unfleek battering” and makeup and good clothes have been a good diversion for us all.
Issues such as these have kept the actress trending all year long, and you don’t even want to start with her 2016 AMVCA outfit that took everyone by surprise.
While these actresses are talented and have been rewarded for their crafts, we can also not deny that negative controversial issues have taken their name further.
