Controversial Nigerian lawyer and author, Reno Omokori has taken to social media to blast ladies who bleach their skins and enhance their bodies. According to him, tampering with your naturally dark skin and going under the knife just screams to the world how much you hate your body.
In a recent post made by the outspoken influencer, he advised people to live lives worthy of emulation.
“When you bleach and surgically enhance your body, you are not just saying ‘I hate myself’, you also teach young dark-skinned girls to likewise hate themselves. No matter how many rich old men date you, you remain a danger to yourself and society! Love your dark skin. Live a life worthy of emulation. Look at your photos before you bleached. You were the epitome of beauty. A natural African woman.
You do not need to be light skinned and have surgically enhanced features to be loved. You were already lovely. Look at @AgbaniDarego. The first and only Nigerian to win the Miss World Pageant. Black and beautiful. She did not bleach or surgically enhance herself. Yet, she is married, has a child, and is a thing of joy to herself and her race. A beacon of virtue and pride to the Black Race. Young Black girls can look at her and feel beautiful. Black is Beautiful. Say it with me-I’m Black and I am proud!”
