Top Nollywood actress, Bimbo Akinsanya, better addressed as Omo Oloja, has rubbished social media reports that she once married Olanrewaju Gentry (Larry Gentry), the estranged husband of her colleague, Mercy Aigbe. She insisted there is no iota of truth in the tale. She, therefore, enjoined her fans and the general public to disregard the publication in its totality as it’s nothing but a mischievous statement.
She further described it as not only fictitious but malicious, labeling those peddling it as mischief makers whose aim is to cause disaffection between herself and Mercy Aigbe and drag the image she built over the years in the mud.
Speaking with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Thursday, May 11, 2017, the talented role interpreter expressed deep concern over the post, saying, “I was shocked when my attention was called to the post that I was once married to Mercy Aigbe’s husband. That’s absolute lie. I only met the man about 14 years ago when we were filming in his office, and I was not the only one. Since, I never met him. I didn’t even know him well until he married Mercy. So, I don’t know how and where they came across their story. How can some bloggers sit at the corners of their rooms and be fabricating lies against another person without calling that person to confirm the tale or rumour about what they heard about the person? Have they called me or Gentry to find out whether we have ever dated let alone married. That’s malicious. I think those behind the stuff are only interested in maligning me.
“To put the record straight, I got married in 2014. I got separated from my husband in 2015 when my son was just three years old. I have since remained a single mother. So, Gentry and I never dated let alone married. Anybody in doubt is free to confirm what I said from Gentry himself or Mercy Aigbe. Some people are just being mischievous for peddling that kind of rumour.”
