Lilian Afegbai aka Lilyafe, an actress, has revealed that she bleached her hair as a child.
In an interview with Toke Makinwa on the latest episode of ‘Toke Moments,’ the duo discussed a variety of topics ranging from dating to skin bleaching and more.
Speaking, the chocolate-skinned former Big Brother Africa housemate explained that many people will question or doubt her involvement in several Nollywood films in the past because she was fair at the time due to bleaching.
During her expository chat with Makinwa, Afegbai joggled between English language and Pidgin stating she’s thankful to have gone through certain life’s phases because she learnt valuable lessons through them.
She said: “I’m happy for all those things I did. Imagine of I’m doing it now, do you know how stupid I’ll look?
“Imagine if I buy bag now and now put it …..I no fit. If you no know the price, e no matter. People wey know the price, know am.
“But I think it’s a phase like you said and I’m happy that I went through that phase.
‘Like when I was growing up, I bleached. Yeah, I bleached.
“My new video that I’m dropping for ‘Akanchawa Baddie’, I spoke about it
“You’ll now see people come on some blogs and say, ‘Which movie she don act?’
“I no blame una. I fair for the one wey you dey watch. Naim make you no know say na me. Because if not, you no go fit insult me like that na. Me wey don dey act from university.
“They say, ‘Ehn! Nigerian is 10million people, actress is 9million. Which movie you don act? Comot for here’.
“No be your fault, na me wey go bleach; so I come fair. The one you dey watch, I fair. So when you see me, you no go know say na me. So, you don watch 10 of my movies, I fair.
