In the Nigerian entertainment industry, a number of celebrities, not just women, even some men, have been known to patronise and represent products that make them look fairer.
Well, despite this popularity in bleaching products, there are many other celebrities who are aware that their melanin is popping and choose to keep it that way.
The likes of Kate Henshaw, Genevieve Nanji, Funke Akindele-Bello and host of other beautiful ladies keep showing us that black skin is the real deal.
Beauty is something that its definition has changed over the years and many times it is usually based on what is the trend at the time.
Sometimes, people get carried away with trends and start to alter their looks to fit into the current definition of beauty, forgetting that it would soon fade away.
Many Africans have been greatly influenced by foreign media to believe that beauty is fair-skinned, pale and light and this has led to the popularity of bleaching products among women of colour.
Black women sometimes face discrimination even from their countrymen. Despite this, it is refreshing to see that a great number of them do not allow themselves be victimised and pressurised into getting rid of their black and beautiful skin.
