She was born on January 1, 1979 in Benin, where she is from. She is the second child in a family of 5. She grew up in Lagos, and even though she speaks Yoruba language fluently now, that was not the case when she first burst into the movie scene. She had to learn on the job and now, you can mistake her for a Yoruba lady.
She has an Ordinary National Diploma (OND) from the Ibadan Polytechnic in Financial Studies before going to the University of Lagos to study Theatre Arts, where she earned her degree in 2001. She went on to work in the bank for many years before pursuing her passion, which was acting.
She started off in 2006, acting in soap operas before she got a break into the Yoruba movies scene and has since gone on to win many awards since then.
She is married to a hotelier, Asiwaju Olanrewaju Gentry, whom she shares a son with.
Mercy Aigbe-Gentry is the beautiful woman we are crushing on this week.
