Popular Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has taken to social media to bewail the struggles associated with the ongoing Ramadan fast.
The thespian, who was a Christian before marrying her Muslim husband, filmmaker Kazim Adeoti, admitted that getting up early to prepare Sari has been difficult for her.
[Sari is the food eaten early in the morning by Muslims before fasting. It’s usually consumed before dawn]
According to Mercy, a mother of two, fasting has been relatively easy, but getting up in the early hours of the morning to cook has been an uphill task.
She also posted a photo of herself dozing off while dressed in an Islamic outfit, and revealed that her husband took the photo in her most vulnerable moment. She playfully tackled her husband and said they have a score to settle.
The 45-year-old movie star wrote,
“So all of you saying my hubby is calm, he is calm, can y’all see what he did to me this early morning ????????????
Waking up for Sari is not easy!!! I am coping very well with fasting but you see that waking up to cook & chop early momo, is a struggle ???? Sleep just won’t leave me alone!
May almighty Allah accept all our sacrifices as an act of ibadah, forgive all our sins, answer all our prayers, continue to bless us and reward us with good deeds ????????
Meanwhile @kazimadeoti 1– 0 first to do no dey pain… wait for my retaliation ????????”
