That the once blissful and enviable marriage of Nollywood diva, Mercy Aigbe to a Lagos based hotelier, Lanre Gentry has crashed irrecoverably is like stating the obvious. Last week, the media was awash with the news of their messy separation which was as a result of alleged battery, infidelity among others. Mercy was said to have accused his husband of always battering her and also sleeping with his best friend known as Opemititi. Meanwhile, Gentry also accused the thespian of sleeping around with different men, thus abandoning her conjugal role. The latest development in the story now is that the actress has gotten a court order restricting Gentry from getting close to her.
However, be that as it may, while the drama keeps unfolding, what many have failed to focus on is that of the intruder in the person of Opemititi, but we shall reveal more to you about her in this piece.
Opemititi’s story according to those in the know is that of a spoilt brat. According to findings, Opemititi is the only child of her parent and based on this they showered her with a whole lot of love and affection, and as a result she was being over pampered.
Benconews gathered that she grew up with her parent in Abeokuta, Ita Elega to be precise. And during her growing up days, she was black in complexion, but her new celebrity status was responsible for her now whitish colour. Her mother, we gathered, runs a private school called Divine Int’l school in the same axis. But after completing her studies in the higher institution, she moved to Lagos where she secured a job in a bank. And it wasn’t long before her path came across with that of Mercy, and before we could say hi both became friends.
To those in the know, while both were together Mercy was Opemititi’s mentor as she always take decisions from her and at times we learnt Mercy hooks her up with high flying big boys in town. This was really said to have helped even when Opemititi quit her banking job for interior decor.
Though still single, Opemititi has been linked to many big boys in town but that of a former Ogun State governor is what many do not know. According to tattlers, Opemititi had a stitch with an ex-governor who hails from Ijebu and while the courtship was rosy, she benefited immensely, financially wise.
