Lanre Gentry, the ex-husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, has said that contrary to some speculations on social media, their son, Olajuwon, is 100% his.
Shortly after Mercy revealed her new husband, Kazim Adeoti, online, there have been comments made by some Nigerians that Adeoti and Olajuwon, have a strong resemblance. This occurred after a throwback photo of Mercy and Lanre with Kazim and his wife surfaced online.
Placing their pictures side by side, a Twitter user @emmaikumeh, wrote;
“The resemblance between Mercy Aigbe’s son and her new husband is striking. She cannot even deny it. I hope her ex-husband does a paternity test. Things are happening. Every day, we see stories that reinforce the need to do DNA as a father. The street is military.”
Other social media users have also called for a paternity test to be carried out to ascertain who the father of the 11-year-old boy is.
Confirming the paternity of Olajuwon via his Instagram page, Mr Gentry wrote;
“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.”
