Men are one of the reasons why ladies begin to tone or bleach their skin to become fair or light skinned.Although, some decide to bleach or tone up their skin based on inferiority complex.
Many ladies assume that Nigerian men actually prefer a light skinned lady to a dark skinned one and based on that assumption, they begin to use costmetic products that would change their skin colour.
Some of Nigerian female celebrities have gone through skin tranformation in other to please the man in their life.
A Facebook user Joy Bells has voiced her opinion about dark skinned girls, saying "So is it just me.But I say DARK SKINNED GIRLS ARE NATURALLY DIRTY…esp THE FAT ONES"
Few minutes after posting, she came back on Facebook to apologize for saying the above to dark skinned girls. She claimed she just wanted to get on the nerves of a few girls on a certain group but it got out of hand with the post from blogs which made her feel bad.
She also admitted to not being naturally light skinned and that the post came up due to an arguement she had with her cousin and a few friends .
Read her apology below;
