Mzbel

Singer Mzbel has revealed she once took to skin bleaching because she felt “ugly”.

In a Facebook post, she said at the time, she thought being black meant she was “dirty” which dimmed her confidence.

However, Mzbel’s decision to become a light skin girl came with grave consequences, she stated.

Years later, the ’16 years’ hitmaker who has time to reflect, said her actions were as a result of self-hate.

“I shared my story and got help, now I’ve learned to say: ‘You know what? I am a beautiful black woman,” she wrote.

Discouraging others from doing same she disclosed that she suffered horrible side effects from the products she used.
