Ghanaian Singer Mzbel advises women to shun bleaching, narrates how she suffered side-effects after bleaching, thinking black is dirty.
“I use to think I was ugly. I thought being black was dirty, so I took to skin bleaching and suffered horrible side-effects years later. But that is the result of self-hate. I shared my story and got help. Now I have learned to say: I’m a beautiful black woman”.
“I have come to understand life and I am trying to connect to who I am, as a black person I don’t think I have to be apologizing for being black.
“I don’t care if people start saying I am black now, being white is not who I am and anytime I see someone with dark complexion I jealous the person. I move from Church to Church because I’m on a spiritual journey to quit bleaching”, she said.
