- Controversial Nollywood actress and social media comedian, Etinosa Idemudia, has shared her take on a popular issue
- According to the film star, ladies should own up to their bleaching and stop being ashamed of it
- Etinosa said that if guys can draw tattoos or tint their hair to different colours, then she sees no reason for them to criticise bleaching
Bleaching is a growing trend in many African countries, especially amongst ladies. These days, social media does not help as it openly showcases ladies who were formerly black but are now "as white as snow".
The issue of bleaching is always a hot topic on social media with people slamming those who are found guilty or have been suspected of partaking in it.
Well, controversial Nollywood actress and social media comedian, Etinosa Idemudia, has shared her take on bleaching and how it is not a thing to be ashamed of.
In a video shared on the actress’ Instagram page, she wondered why ladies who bleach are not proud to own up to it. According to her, many of them start to call it different things such as toning and skin glow, just so that people will not criticise them.
Etinosa then charged ladies who bleach to own it because there is nothing wrong with it. She also added that if guys can dye their hair to different colours, pierce their ears and also draw tattoos on their skin, why then do they criticise ladies who bleach?
Etinosa then concluded her video by saying that in this year 2020, she wants to bleach her skin so that she can be white and that it is nobody’s concern.
In the caption of her post, she wrote: “Bleaching/Toning. Own it sis! It is not a crime to bleach or do cosmetic surgery so why do we ladies always shy away from the truth? I've said my own.”

Sometime in 2019, Legit.ng reported that NAFDAC warned Nigerians against skin lightening and bleaching.
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has advised Nigerians against the use of bleaching or “ skin whitening” chemicals because they could lead to cancer and kidney malfunction.
The director-general of NAFDAC, Prof. Moji Adeyeye, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.
