Self-proclaimed Ghanaian slay queen, Patience Enyonam Gbekle, famed as Queen Farcardi, has granted an interview to German-based media outfit, Deutsche Welle TV.
In a snippet of the interview sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram, Queen Farcadi was heard explaining why she changed her skin tone.
According to her, she decided to change from her dark skin to a lighter tone because it appeared such ladies were more appealing to men.
She said she wanted to fit into the category of the type of women that the men wanted on social media.

Queen Farcadi went on to add that she switched from being called Enyonam to her current name due to her new skin tone.
The social media slay queen said her life changed along with her skin tone because things started looking up and her life became good.
She said her light skin brought her acceptance and took her into places her original dark tone may not have taken her to.
Queen Farcadi added that she was more confident in her skin and has been living a good life ever since she bleached.
She said she was receiving loads of attention from men and also managed to secure some modelling deals due to her bleached skin.
Many Ghanaians were taken aback when 'before and after' photos of Queen Farcadi went viral some years back.
She appeared to have transitioned from an original chocolate-like colour to looking very light-skinned.
However speaking on the matter after YEN.com.gh reached out to him, Starr FM radio show host, Caleb Boye said Queen Farcadi was making a huge public relations blunder with her interview with the international media.
According to him, coming out to openly glorify bleaching one's skin was a no-no and was going to cost her a number of deals.
He went on to compare Queen Farcadi's words to that of the interview Moesha Bosuong granted to Christiane Amanpour some years back.
"I think Queen Farcadi got carried away by the fact that she was being featured on DW TV because her words and the way she glorified bleaching which is seen by many Ghanaians as a bad practice, would come back to haunt her," Caleb said.
"She can end up losing some of her modelling gigs due to this comment. She should have taken a cue from the bashing Moesha received over her sugar daddy interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour," Caleb added.
