With fireworks flying from both actress Mercy Aigbe and her husband, Lanre Gentry, the photo-sharing portal, Instagram went on fire!
Well, someone must have scolded the hotelier husband because he suddenly put off his ‘fireworks’ and tendered an apology to his wife.
He wrote, “For peace to reign, I’m going to bury all hatchet and break the bone of contention between myself and Mercy Aigbe Gentry. I’m sorry to those who I’ve hurt with my action and comment/words. Mercy, you claimed that I’m begging you behind curtains, OK here I am begging you openly. I’m sorry!!!
This drama is exhausting and I’m done with it all. Despite all that’s been happening; I don’t love you less. I still see you as the mother of my children and I want to give you the respect to that regard. Thanks to each and everyone who’s preached peace; may God perfect all that is yours.
Special thanks to Adeola Kujenya, I truly appreciate you.
God bless us all!!!! Amen.’ (sic)
