I almost bleached my skin over stigmatisation – Actress Linda Osifo

DARK-SKIN beautiful Nollywood actress, Linda Osifo has shared the reason she once considered bleaching her skin while growing up.

According to her recent chat with TVC, Ms Osifo noted that she grew up in Canada, where she experienced all sorts of racism treatment..

The script interpreter recalled that she had wanted to bleach her skin because in Canada, she was discriminated against, not just for being black but a dark-skinned black person.

”You see, with this topic that you mentioned it’s so controversial and I absolutely love it. I’ve been through a rollercoaster with it. When I first started, of course living in Canada the system was quite different, I felt the racial effect. I felt it so drastically because I wasn’t just black, I was a darker completion of that black and I had a lot of stigmas.”

“I was discriminated against as a young girl, I had tried to bleach at one time. I tried to use a lighter cream but when I came to Nigeria, I started seeing more people like myself, more people who looked like me, who are just like me and I started appreciating myself, in fact, I’ve been looking for a way to get darker because I want to be that typical African woman,” she recounted.
