Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage has opened up about trying to bleach her skin when she was a teenager.

The singer is in the cover of this month’s issue of ‘Allure Magazine’ where she revealed these details.

The ‘Koroba’ hitmaker says she would make a mixture of a creams and lemon to lighten her skin but was later warned by her mother.

“I ACTUALLY DID TRY TO BLEACH MY SKIN WHEN I WAS ABOUT, I THINK 14 OR 15 YEARS. EVEN NOW I HAVE PATCHES ON MY BACK. MY MUM WAS CLEANING MY ROOM AND SAW THE CREAM THAT I USED TO MIX WITH LEMONS. SHE WASN’T ANGRY. IT WAS MORE HER DISAPPOINTMENT. SO I STOPPED BUT I WAS ALWAYS INSECURE ABOUT BEING DARK,” SHE SAID IN THE INTERVIEW.

 

Savage is a mother of one and has become one of the most sought after stars in the continent after her very first debut album Once Upon a Time in 2013.
