Singer Akothee is not interested in lightening her skin.
The controversial singer stated that she’s proud of her complexion and wouldn’t take the path that celebrities such Vera Sidika, Kush Tracy, Bridget Achieng took.
“Show me one surgeon who has ever fixed height, that’s when you know you can’t dictate God’s way of building, Long legs for days hapa nimewachapa 10 Nill, hii hawes make God given before you tell me to bleach my skin, get your legs to my height.” she said.
Skin lightening has been rampant in African countries in recent years.
Vera Sidika caused a social media storm in 2014 after admitting to lightening her skin, a procedure she claimed to have cost her somewhere in the region of Sh15 Million Kenyan shillings.
Akothee said fans shouldn’t pressure her into the procedure.
“Love me or leave me alone, go bleach the people around you. The ones you have direct contact with, coz I annoy you and maybe you will never shake my hands you annoy yourself for no reason, bleach your entire village they will come to your funeral,” she posted.
