Ghanaian singer, Mzbel has shared her experience bleaching her skin.
According to the singer, she suffered terrible side effects which made her decide to quit skin bleaching.
Via her IG page, Mzbel wrote;
“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”.
In an interview with Abeiku Santana on UTV’s Atuu show last year, Mzbel said;
“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.
