Weeks to last year’s edition of Best of Nollywood award, popular yoruba actress Mercy Aigbe and comedian Okey Bakkassi were announced as the anchors of the event, however, the Nollywood actress disappointed her fans and the event organisers when she refused to show up at the highly anticipated show.
After the event, there were speculations that the actress backed out at the last minute because of her poor English as she didn’t want to disgrace herself in front of the crowd seeing that she mostly features in Yoruba movies.
Days ago, Mercy Aigbe was cornered by the media who asked the mother of two on her reason for skipping on the Best Of Nollywood awards, if not for her fluency in English.
An infuriated Mercy responded saying;
“I would not speak on why I was not at BON awards or why I did not host the event. I don’t care about what anybody says. If they say my spoken English is not fluent, that is their business. I do not speak fluently yet I have hosted various awards including the City People awards. People have watched my interviews on television and they listen to me speak on my social media accounts.”
