Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has given a shout out to all the single moms out there. She used the opportunity to reveal how what she went through raising her daughter Michelle as a single mom. She said she once had to sell her jewelry just so she could pay for her daughter’s school fees.

She said,
“Special shout out to all the single mums…I can relate, hmm I remember when I had to go sell my gold jewellery at Yaba just to pay Michelle ‘s school fees and for us to feed. I went through ‘HELL’”

Being a single mom, she advises all mothers to stay focused and be prayerful:
“Please stay focused, be determined, be hardworking and prayerful, put all your trust in the Lord because “we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus” and trust me you will rise above those challenges. To all mothers, mothers to be , may the Lord continue to strengthen us and may we eat the fruit of our labour IJN. Responsible daddies you ain’t left out. Thank you all once again.”

Last year, her marriage to her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry went through a rough path as she was allegedly beaten by him. The actress shared a video of the injuries she sustained as a result of the domestic violence she claimed he perpetrated on her. Shortly after the incidence, Mercy moved out of her matrimonial home and unfollowed her hubby on social media. Speaking on the beating, she said,


“He beats me consistently.

“I stayed because I loved him and because everytime he beats me, he begs and gets family and friends to beg me. He promised regularly to change but he never did. When my husband gets angry, he gets physical, not only to me but to anyone. He has done that with my house help who reported him to the Police years ago”.


It appears things are about to start getting rosy between the couple after she recently celebrated her birthday. Her hubby took the opportunity to celebrate her with the below quote.

Today you are @40 even though we are fighting I still say happy birthday to you because you are still my wife and my children mother as I use to call you ones again happy birthday to you Mercy Aigbe Gentry. Long life and God bless you.

Mercy proceeded to receiving the olive branch by following Lanre Gentry on social media after months of animosity towards each other, a period that saw Lanre claiming the actress is suffering from mental illness.
