DUBIOUS DESIGNER:HOW MARYAM ELISHA SOLD CUSTOMERS WEDDING DRESS TO ACTRESS MERCY AIGBE……

+ Real reason you should be careful doing business with her….

Information reaching Society Reporters revealed that popular ex beauty queen, and designer, Maryam Elisha is presently enmeshed in a serious scandal for selling a brides wedding gown to an actress (Mercy Aigbe) just a day before her wedding day.

We gathered reliably that the bride had earlier ordered her preferred fabrics abroad, and approached the dubious designer, Maryam Elisha (@rikaotobyme) to help her bring out something good from it, but instead of Maryam keeping to her promise as a business woman, she sold the already made fabrics to an actress Mercy Aigbe just for her birthday photo shoot on the same day of the brides wedding.

See what the pained bride wrote on her instagram page:

  • This was too bad. On the 29th of December 2017 which happens to be a day to my wedding, a greedy designer decided to ruin my big day. I cried all day no stop. I bought this lovely fabric from @bshani_bridalfbricsand asked her to deliver to this designer @rikaotobyme after I had concluded the style and price with @rikaotobyme I made a 50% payment to her as soon the fabric got to her. Told her its my wedding reception dress she assured me it will be ready on 26th. on that 26th i chatted her up to ask for my dress she replied saying it was ready as u can see on the chat above, she also said she will send a pics, eventually now sent a video d next day which was 27th u can also see that on the chat above. I sent the balance 50% to her on 28th when I had seen the dress and was satisfied, she couldn’t send that day cos all flights coming to Benin that day were cancelled. So we were now left with 29th a day to my wedding, I called her by 6am that morning and she told me d delivery Guy has gone to d park to send my dress that she will send the waybill details(sending details ) across shortly. I waited till 9am no words from her. i started calling to ask for the waybill details she wasn’t taking my calls, atimes she even cut the calls. I sent several messages no response at 1pm I started crying cos the situation got beyond my control. My hubby,friends and family requested for the number and also started calling her but she obviously decided not to take any calls again. Until 4pm when I was drained in tears she then called and was apologising that she didn’t know what to say to me that y she refuse taking calls, she continued saying the delivery guy she gave my dress to is no where to be found. when she heard how I was crying she then suggested to give me one of her old dresses for me to use for the day, I had no choice cos I was desperate I then accepted it.i got d dress on my wedding morning. I went on IG yesterdy only to see @realmercyaigbewearing my dress with the same fabric I bought and she tagged same designer @rikaotobyme.how much did she pay u to disappoint a bride on her wedding day? U are heartlessly wicked and u will sure not get away with this @rikaotobyme

  • starrdreams@rikaotobymekaii you are evil. People like you get to a certain status and fall and you wonder why? You are the type of people who while starting out ruin their bosses. How and what were you thinking the bride won’t find out??? So how much did Mercy pay you. Oh cos she tagged you. I am so sure not much was given to you. But that bride you did this to would have brought more money for you. I am so sure it is a cheaper dress you gave the bride for her wedding. you even have the guts to collect payment after this wickedness telling her cock and bull story. See suing you is waste of time and money @rettypety allow time to go and look for someone and beat or cos bodily harm on this vendor. I can imagine how many people you have ruined to get to this stage. You are a wicked and cursed person @rikaotobyme and nobody should have anything to do with you. Evil should be your name. And you can block me after this tag.

LAGOS BRIDAL FASHION WEEK IS HERE……

Published

on

Lagos has become a hub for shopping for bridals across Nigeria, buyers from across the country throng into the city of Lagos to explore the various markets and variants of bridal outfits, accessories and designers as well. So it can safely be said that Lagos has become the go-to market for bridal or wedding shopping’s. And having noticed this trend and in a bid to solidify the market not just in Nigeria, but Africa as a whole, and the multi-billion naira industry, Call Her Classic Fashion Agency, have put up the maiden edition of the Lagos Bridal Fashion Week (LBFW), which is scheduled to take place from May 4-May 6th 2018 at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Ayomide Amosun-Dabiri of Call Her Classic, who spoke about the three day event at the press conference said LBFW will cater to the needs of weddings, which are a ‘huge part of our culture’ in the country. She also described Nigeria as the hub of weddings in Africa and LBFW will showcase the latest in terms of bridal fashion in Nigeria.
“I believe that there is no reason why people from other parts of Africa, at the very least, are not coming into Nigeria to buy stuffs, buy products for their wedding, buy outfits for their wedding,” said Amosun-Dabiri.
“So, those are the kind of markets we’re trying to look at, in terms of capturing patronage. We’re kind of the bridal fashion capital within Africa.”
The LBFW would have two features, there would be a daily runway show which is open to the public and a BFW bridal boutique for local and international vendors from other African countries, UK, USA and Dubai. Also there would be exhibitions and sales of clothes, shoes and accessories between 10am and 6pm by exhibitors such as Bridals by Ivy, Buwie Fabrics, CLAN, Fuxion Trends, Donna Tyler Jewellery and Duke and Dexter, Perfect Occasion Bridals, Love Tims, Patrick Ayanski and Honey and Cherish.
Most importantly designers such as Andrea Iyamah, Mai Atafo and April by Kunbi would have daily installations at the venue.


The second feature of the three day fashion show will be runway shows by invited designers by 6pm each day. Day one would have models strutting in bridal outfits by Elizabeth and Lace, Shadiat Alaasoke, Bibi Lawrence, Elvira Jude and Yemi Shoyemi. Day two, the likes of Mazelle, Otumemine, Patrick Ayanski, Yinka Alli (UK), Alonuko (UK), David Tlale (SA), Kimono Kollection and Brides by Nona (USA), will show their designs. While day three would have Magnetic Elegance, Valerie David, Taryor Gabriels, Toju Foyeh, Hudayya, Ese Azenabor (US) and Kosibah (UK) thrill the audience.
Professionals in the wedding industry would have the opportunity to be tutored by professionals and the designers would learn from them and also attendees would be able to meet one-on-one with the designers for advises and consultations on budgeting for weddings and what to wear.
Black Opal Nigeria would be on ground as the official makeup sponsor of the event, according to Tolani Aremu from Black Opal, “you can’t have bride and will not have make-up involved.”
