It’s quite heart-warming to know that women support women in time of crisis.
For one whose marital brouhaha became public discussion on social media and was almost humiliated by her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry, actress Mercy Aigbe must have found succour in the encouraging words of an actress like Funke Akindele.
The seven-year-old marriage to Gentry suffered a major hiccup in April 2017 when Mercy’s photos of a battered face oozing blood, was released on the Internet. It went viral!
She later started releasing more exhibits and granted a major interview, where she tearfully narrated how she had been a victim of her husband’s fists for many years.
It must have been a horrifying experience for the mother of two.
Now heaving a sigh of relief as the case is in court, the actress revealed how she was comforted by Jenifa.
As Funke Akindele marks her 40th birthday today August 24, Mercy, who will be 40 penned this message:
Happy birthday my superwoman, thank you for being an awesome being! Thank you for all dose calls, all dose messages and all dose words of encouragement when I was at my lowest! You are a fantastic person and I pray as you add another year, may you always and always have cause to celebrate . May the lord continue to increase you in every area of your life IJN. Have fun babe @funkejenifaakindele love you ?
