If like me you’ve lost count of the number of Nigerian celebrities who have felt the need to tell us that they aren’t bleaching their skins, don’t be tired yet!
Talk show host, Funmi Iyanda is the latest to be hit with the “you’re bleaching!” charges (which usually come through the courts of Instagram comments and Facebook).
I’m not entirely sure why anyone should take these things seriously but Funmi provided us with a glorious picture of her thighs as…evidence.
She also added a mini-tirade to her Instagram post,
“The top is what happens to my skin in fall, winter and spring. The bottom is what it is in summer or when l’m home in my lovely hot country. There are no filters. Pictures taken six weeks apart. Top in London in November, bottom in Lagos in January. I do not like the unhealthy pasty lighter one much the golden brown one being much yummier, fortunately it is mostly bundled up in warm clothing until summer or when l come home. I spectacularly hate the snide insinuations and speculations l get on account of this from those who hate the skin they are in. This is my skin, it changes with the weather as nature designs. Next person who talks trash to me will end up in lawma’s bin. #iyalayaanybody #melaninonfleek #shadesofblack”
