Few people that are close to me, know my source. I am never shy to be affiliated with the name, Mercy Aigbe. I had attended an audition for the movie, ‘The Return of Jenifa’. Luckily for me, I was picked. I was told I would be acting with Mercy Aigbe, even though I was an up and coming actor. When I got on set, Funke Akindele told me I would be kissing Mercy Aigbe.
