Actress Mercy Aigbe’s ex-husband, Lanre Gentry speaks on their son’s paternity

Netizens had alleged that Mercy Aigbe and Gentry’s son, Olajuwon, whom they had during their seven-year marriage could likely not be his.

This is coming after Mercy unveiled her new lover to be Yoruba filmmaker, Kazim Adeoti popularly known as Adekaz Productions. Reacting to this, her former husband, Lanre Gentry posted a picture of himself, the actress, and the new husband of the actress, to tell the world the man the actress just married used to be his friend.

The pictures were accompanied by the caption, “At last I thank God the truth is out. This is just one out of many. Glory be to God”, suggesting that the relationship between the duo was ongoing even while they were married.

His post triggered both reactions and concerns, especially towards the paternity of their son, Olajuwon.

Creating a photo collage of Lanre, Adeoti, and Olajuwon, a Twitter user, @emmaikumeh wrote: “The resemblance between Mercy Aigbe’s son and this her new husband is striking. She cannot even deny it. I hope her ex-husband does a paternity test. Things they occur. Every day, we see stories that reinforce the need to do a DNA as a father. The street is military.” 

Others shared their backing;

Abujasextoyshop: “The resemblance choke.” 

Glam_by_ewa: “The boy looks like his Mother, not this man.” 

Slay_by_arewa: “The smile look exactly the same .” 

Pink.lips.balm: “lol… The boy looks like Mercy what is wrongg with you people .”

In response to this, Lanre made a post confirming the paternity of his son whom Mercy bore him seven years ago.

“What is life? I thank everyone for your comments and advice about my lovely son, Olajuwon Gentry.

My son is my son 100%. I love him so much. There is nothing in this world that can separate me from my children”, Gentry wrote.
