In many countries in Africa, men and especially women with lighter skin are favoured over those with darker skin, leading to better opportunities and treatment in society.
As unfair as this may seem, it is the reality that has resulted in millions of women (and men) across the continent aquiring skin-bleaching products in order to achieve a lighter skin complexion.
Take a look at 5 Africans who are not ashamed to admit that they have lightened their skin and are proud of it!
Pela Tonye Okiemute says he is a skin bleaching expert and helps others achieve their dream of becoming light skinned.
Vera Sidika, a Kenyan socialite who allegedly spent over $170,000 dollars lightening her skin. She’s not shy to admit it.
Dencia - Cameroonian/Nigerian skin whitening expert whose whitening products are some of the most expensive in the world. She has made a name for herself as one who prefers to be light skinned than brown skinned.
Former model Irene Major who hated being dark skinned says she feels prettier lighter.
Nasara Kittoe, former Ghana’s most beautiful admitted in an interview that she looks better light skinned than dark skinned and decided to live with the former – perhaps for the rest of her life.
Do you think people should change their complexion if they do not feel comfortable in their dark skin?
