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.
