Film director and businesswoman, Mercy Aigbe, has said that she's not a gold digger who married her new husband, Kazeem Adeoti, for money.
Addressing the public amid the continous backlashes, the mother of two stated that she loves him and they complement each other contrary to what most people think.
According to Mercy, she was rich before she decided to tie the knot with her husband, Kazeem Adeoti.
Speaking in an interview with MediaRoomHub, she said; "I am not poor to start with. I work very hard, and I wonder why people don’t see my hard work. I’m one of the most misunderstood people. I work so hard and hardly sleep.
"I have assets—my child is abroad and I pay school fees in dollars. I change naira to dollars, and I have been doing that before I got married. I don’t know how people got that notion that I married because of money
"It is not like he is poor, I’m also rich. I’m extremely comfortable to God’s glory. I married him because I love him, not because of money. I married him because he is my best friend.
"He gives me peace; he makes me happy. I didn’t marry him because of money, in fact, I’m working for him because we are business partners.
"We complement each other, so I also brought something to the table—it’s not like I just walked into the relationship without any value. I’m not a gold-digger, I work hard for my money.
"All those influencing jobs you see me do, I charge huge sums of money—and my store is also the most followed on Instagram, so I make a lot of money from that too
"I have over 10 million followers on Instagram. I have been doing business for years. I am one of the first set of people that made so much money from influencing before it became very common and we made a lot of money. People are always judgmental; they don’t know the true picture.".
