Actress, Adediwura Adesegha, aka Adediwura BlarkGold, has said she stuck with her dark skin and did not opt for skin lightening because she did not want to lose her self-esteem and dignity.
She told Saturday Beats, “I stayed true to my skin colour because I have confidence. I do not want to lose my self-pride, self-esteem and self-dignity. I’m a role model to the younger ones in my family and I chose to lay a good example, especially to the ones that are girls. I belong to the black race and we are proud of our colour. Lastly, I respect God and appreciate the skin colour he chose for me. Don’t forget that everyone has a choice about how they want to look.
“A fulfilling life comes from following one’s creative and emotional desire and having a certain level of comfort. People have different desires and tolerances. Therefore, some actors will be more fulfilled than others. I am 30 percent fulfilled. It is a long journey and I am not halfway there.”
