- Actress Etinosa has told Tolanibaj not to give in to peer pressure as two ex-housemates got political appointments recently
- The filmmaker’s statement was a reply to the reality star who said dark skin women were underrated
- Etinosa also said that even though she sells bleaching cream, black skin is beautiful
Controversial Nigerian actress and filmmaker Etinosa Idemudia in a reply to reality star Tolanibaj said that black skin is beautiful and cannot hold anyone back.
BBNaija reality star, Tolanibaj in a post on Twitter said that dark skin women were always underestimated and underrated.
In a reply to the statement, Etinosa took to her Instagram page to share her opinion.
Etinosa also said that even though she sells bleaching cream and light skin looks attractive, black skin is always beautiful.
She further stated that she had to reply because some dark skin girls might feel like what Tolanibaj said was true.
Excerpt from her post read:
"Good morning @tolanibaj. With all due respect, I understand that the pressure to measure up to your peers can be very daunting. Everybody assumes once you are famous it's automatic 'success' 'cashout'. Please block the noise and don't let it get to you. You are so so beautiful, intelligent and your time is definitely coming. Please remove the notion from your mind that your skin colour may be holding you back and reach for the sky."
The film star also insinuated that Tolanibaj’s statement might have come from the fact that fellow ex-housemate, Nengi who is light-skinned got appointed as Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the governor of Bayelsa state.

Nigerians, however, took to the comment section to tell the filmmaker that she was out of line this time.
Legit.ng gathered some reactions:
"It's so crazy that a grown-up would relate this to BBN. It's so annoying when dark-skinned women speak about their struggles people try to make it void. Light skinned privileged exist. Colorism exist and tolanibaj's tweet is valid and I can relate to it because I'm an extra dark-skinned woman. Like people need to learn to shut their teeth if they don't relate to a post."
"I don't think her post has anything to do with the appointment."
"Is she from the same state? How is it her business who gets what appointment? She cannot talk her truth without being associated with anyone? You sell bleaching cream but want to uplift dark skinned women? You are NOT smart."
"Colourism is a big issue among us, Tolani didn’t say nonsense and her post does not relates to Nengi ejoor ma."
"How can you assume on her behalf? Honestly? How does it even make sense to you?"
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Etinosa charged pastors about cesarean section, and told them to normalise it in churches.
It is a common statement among women that they would have their babies like the Hebrew women in the bible. Sadly, this mentality has killed many women as some of them even attended churches that insisted on natural births.
Speaking on the issue, the controversial actress took to her official Instagram page to tell pastors that they should re-educate the women in their churches who had this idea.
