‘It Was Emotional’ – Actress Mercy Aigbe Speaks On Daughter Going to The University
Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has opened up on how she felt seeing her 17-year-old daughter, Michelle, attend university in another country and according to her, it was an emotional moment for her.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, the actress said:
“Her absence hasn’t really been easy. Michelle and I have 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.
