Nigeria tops chart in Bleaching Skin

“Lots of ladies and some men are not comfortable in their skin, you don’t have to change to be liked by anyone, if they don’t like you for who you are they don’t deserve you, bleaching won’t change that.” ~ cknaija

“Don’t change yourself just to make someone happy, unless that someone is you”~unknown

Nigerian singer’s skin lightening range sold out in a day

Black is beautiful but lighter is better; that’s the message that Nigerian star Dencia seems to be sending out.

The Cameroonian-Nigerian musician launched her own skin bleaching range called ‘Whitenicious’ and the product proved to be very popular in Nigeria.

According to reports ‘Whitenicious’ was sold out within a day of going on sale online.

Dencia has since become the trending topic all over the world with many lambasting her for encouraging young women to change their skin tones.

A recent study conducted by the World Health Organisation found that 77 percent of women in Nigeria use skin-lightening products, they are followed by Togo with 59 per cent; South Africa with 35 per cent; and Mali at 25 per cent.

Health experts have warned against using bleaching products on one’s skin, adding that continuous use of such creams could results in permanent damage and even cancer.

Dencia however has a different take on it.

‘Guess what? The air you breathe outside causes you cancer.  Everything in the world causes cancer,’ she was quoted saying.
