Mercy Aigbe Responds To Critics Saying She Backed Out Of Hosting The BON Awards Because Her Spoken English Isn’t Fluent
When it was announced that Mercy Aigbe would host the Best of Nollwyood Awards alongside comedian, Okey Bakkassi, it was delightful news to so many people.
But it was a huge disappointment especially to her fans when the actress didn’t show up at the event leaving Okey Bakkassi to anchor it alone.
However, there were speculations and insinuations that Mercy backed out at the last minute because she allegedly couldn’t handle such event. More so, it was alleged that the actress who features mostly in Yoruba movies, is not fluent in English and could embarrass herself in front of the crowd.
But then, when Punch Saturday Beats reached out to the actress, she said that she would not comment on the reason she shunned the award.
“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,” she said.
