Camera flashes make people think I bleach - Yvonne Nelson

Top Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson is one make-believe star that is not without one controversy or the other. Recall that some months ago, she was in a rumoured affair with Nigerian singer and debut winner of MTN Project Fame West Africa, Iyanya Mbuk.

Even though she earlier denied having any romantic affair with Iyanya, despite pictures showing the two of them together at a beach and the singer mentioning her name repeatedly in one of his hit tracks, ‘Your Waist’, but when the relationship turned sour, she publicly ranted and accused her Nigerian lover of being a cheat. She further disclosed then that she was dumped for another actress, though a Nigerian, who many believe is Tonto Dikeh.

Yvonne has also been accused of bleaching her skin, an allegation she has also denied.

Speaking on this issue last week, the actress maintained that she did not use any bleaching cream on her skin, explaining that camera flashes and filters make pictures she posts on the internet look like she applied a lighting cream on her skin. The actress lamented that she is tired of explaining to people that she did not bleach her skin contrary to what many believe.

Bleaching in Africa is what is frowned at, but it is gradually becoming the norm. Dencia, a Cameroonian singer, was accused of selling a bleaching cream, but she has kicked against this, claiming her product was not made to bleach skins of its users.

In Nollywood, most actresses prefer to appear ‘white’ as that seems to be the criteria for becoming a mega star. Recently, Cynthia Morgan, a female artiste in Nigeria, was criticized for her change of colour, likewise Thelma O’Khaz, an actress in Nigeria, who said her controversial picture as a result of studio works.
