Actress Mercy Aigbe has posted a vintage video of herself genuinely making Amala with the older housewives in her husband’s community, following weeks of receiving harsh online criticism for not joining them in the Ileya cooking.
According to reports, Mercy Aigbe, a stunning Nollywood actress and billionaire wife, aroused responses from online users in July when she broadcast live on Instagram as the older women prepared food in her husband’s family home for the Ileya festival.
Mercy Aigbe was filmed on a live video session displaying how Sallah was being celebrated in her husband’s family house in a clip released by a contentious blog.
Gist Lover pointed up Mercy Aigbe’s “lazy” behavior toward the older wives in the video and urged her to go get firewood for cooking.

Mercy Aigbe has responded by posting a video of herself cooking with the elderly housewives on Instagram. The women can be heard praising Mercy in the film for being modest enough to assist them in the kitchen despite her celebrity position.
