Mercy Aigbe’s ex-husband pens down controversial message to celebrate son’s birthday

Lanre Gentry, the ex-husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, has taken to social media to wish their son, Juwon, a happy birthday.

In an Instagram post, Gentry expressed his determination to maintain his role as Juwon’s father, regardless of any attempts by Mercy to distance them.

Mr Gentry pointed out that no matter how much Mercy tries to take Juwon away from him, he still remains Juwon’s father.

‘’Happy birthday to my dear son Olajuwon Gentry, no matter how your mother try to take you away from me ,I still remain your father and am happy you are growing up to understand that I remain your father and to come back to me to ask for anything without your mother asking by herself. I cherish you, my son, a long life to you and me as your father” he wrote.

The post has sparked mixed reactions from Nigerians on social media. Some users criticized Gentry for publicly airing his matters, while others expressed sympathy for the challenges faced by fathers in maintaining relationships with their children after separation or divorce.

The ace actress separated from her estranged husband in 2017 after she alleged that she suffered domestic violence in her marriage.

Since their separation, the duo has frequently engaged in social media clashes since then.
