Nollywood comic actor, Charles Awurum has shared his view on the controversial fashion trend, skin bleaching. According to him, bleaching of the skin is inspired primarily by inferiority complex.
The veteran actor granted an interview with a correspondent and he shared his perspective on the Nollywood industry and the prevalent culture of bleaching.
According to the actor, people who bleach their skin in the industry are ‘stupid’. He further revealed that bleaching is not a determinant to getting major roles in Nollywood.
See what he said below;
“Dark people look homely to me; those who bleach are cheap. I have never dated any lady that bleached, I like natural beauty. As a young man, even though I came across ladies that bleached, I never considered them for a serious relationship. I just got what I wanted from them. I like dark people naturally, that is why I married a dark woman.
“Everybody has a role in Nollywood, it is a natural world. Anyone who bleaches their skin to get movie roles is just being stupid. There are very successful actors who are dark-skinned in the industry. I think it is all about contentment because even some people, who are naturally light-skinned, still bleach.”
