A-list actress, Mercy Aigbe, has confided in Sunday Scoop that letting her 17-year-old daughter, Michelle, attend university in another country is very emotional for her. She said, “Her absence hasn’t really been easy. We’ve been together for 17 years before she had to go to university. Letting her go is very emotional for me. I still miss her a lot. She’s a big girl now and she’s starting her own journey in life. I have brought her up well; I have inculcated the values I want her to live by in her. I have given her the foundation and I wish her the best. She’s always in my prayers. It’s just painful that after university, she’ll probably get married.”
Sharing tips on her beauty regimen, Aigbe said, “I try to live a healthy lifestyle. I try as much as possible to stay away from fatty foods and I drink lots of water. I eat a lot of vegetables and fruits. I know this may sound cliché but that is how I’ve been able to look younger than my age. I also exercise when I have the time to because I’m not able to do that as much as I would have liked because of busy schedule. Anytime I’m free, I jump on the treadmill and burn some calories.”
On her current projects, Aigbe said, “I’m presently working on a Yoruba movie and it would be out soon. It is titled 77 Bullets. From the title, you should be able to picture what you would see in the movie. I will be taking it to the cinema and I am 100 per cent certain that people will like it. Some of the actors in the movie include Yinka Quadri, Abimbola Ogunnowo and lots of A-list actors; it’s a star-studded movie. I have also done a lot of other jobs with other colleagues. Asides movies, I’m also a fashion entrepreneur and I’ve done a lot in that regard. My daughter recently launched a make-up line and we’ve been doing a lot of work on it.
The actress, who was recently unveiled as a brand influencer for Mary Mak Professional Skincare alongside Bose Omotoyossi and Biodun Okeowo, expressed delight with the new deal. She added, “I am delighted with this partnership with Mary Mak Professional Skincare because even before now, I had actually tried their products. When they contacted me, I asked them to send me some of their products, so I could try them and be sure of the quality. I like to represent credible companies. When I tried the products, I was happy because the results were amazing. I am influencing some specific products for the company such as the body scrub, facial cleanser, face cream and Glutathione patch.”
