What is fundamentally wrong is wrong, irrespective of whoever is doing it—but in Ghana, something is only wrong when certain people do it and when others do it, it becomes right.

Shockingly, film-maker-Leila Djansi who claims she is all about Africa women empowerment is supporting SKIN BLEACHING, all because it’s Yvonne Nelson who is said to have bleached.

Perhaps, we are lame out here—because, skin bleaching and empowering African women are strong enemies; they can’t even be mentioned in the same sentence.

Despite all the health risks, social risks and image issues skin bleaching brings/perpetuates, Leila Djansi seems to say; if a person bleaches, it doesn’t really matter as long as the person is doing something good.

This is like saying, you can be a racist and it won’t matter as long as you are doing something good at your work place—or you shouldn’t be discussed/blasted even if you bleach, provided you are achieving.

Of course, it’s even more dangerous for people achieving to be bleaching their skins, because, it sends out the notion that; there is some sort of connection between the skin colour alteration and the success. It also enables these people to gain more followers, serving as a role model to many.

But then, this is Ghana, you can bleach all you want (while at it, don’t forget to bleach your bum too) and you shouldn’t be challenged because you are making some good progress somewhere in live.

From whatever angle you look at Leila Djansi’s submission, it’s obvious she is approaching menopause with image crisis and deep confusion, affecting her brain procession power.

The argument; it’s her skin so she can bleach is lame for the very fact that, it ignores the consequential effects of status, influence and reliance.

It’s like you saying, it’s my life so I should be allowed to take it—attempted suicide remains a crime in most jurisdiction.

The far-reaching effect would not have mattered much even if the subject of the argument was not a TV personality that a lot of young people look up to—but then again, in an attempt to perhaps build a friendship, Leila Djansi has lost her common sense….

And what does Ama K. Abebrese and the other celebrities championing anti-skin bleaching campaigns have to say? At least, Leila confirms Yvonne Nelson has BLEACHED.

  1. she has started feeling insecured…. inferiority complex. da young gals are snatching her man… lol.. aboa naaaabew. wo b3 te kpa, dasorrrr..

  2. Leila Djansi again? Why is she defending bleaching in this manner maybe her mother or someone bleaches. because I don;t know why she will do this for Yvonne Nelson. This is surprising and difficult for me.

    I may not like her for some of her past silly comments but this is below the belt. We all know the negativity of skin bleaching and here we have a woman of your age and calibre defending someone who does it that is is no big deal?

  3. I wish we can talk about smoking and alcoholism the way we criticise bleaching. These are negative habits but then, people have the right to make their own choices so far as it does not infringe on other people’s right. The cigarette box even states how harmful it can be to one’s health yet people spend money to buy it. Is that bad? Yes! Does that make the person less of a human being? No !Personally, i think people spend so much time criticizing others choices rather than working on their own mistakes.

    1. But in this case, it is the effect Yvonne Nelson’s skin bleaching will have on her young followers and even adult that is being discussed here. I dont think people are allowed to smoke on TV in Ghana but I stand corrected though

  4. This Leila woman needs to be laid she talks too much BS all the time. Look her the human being talking the trash. Skin bleaching is evil

  5. Insults are what you people know best? I presume none of you is guilty of anything. Angels on earth. I am not going to argue this but show some respect for Leilas opinion and yvonne Choice. Ghanaians are too critical. I don’t know which part of the world insults their people more than Ghanaians meanwhile you people are the worse behind closed doors. This picture of Leila must be old and taken badly but you keep using it when you have insults to rain on her. Whatever

  6. Hmmmm, so y has she not bleached……? She has maintained her skin colour till dis stage of her life…. As3m s3b3

  7. This is hypocrisy. GC encouraging homos*xuality and insulting others for bleaching their skin. Being it influence I think homos*xual celebrities can also influence and when it comes to health matters, is there not any health matters associated with homos*xuality ? I personally have no problem with homos*xuality but if GC wants people to leave gays alone, then they should also leave yvonne alone! After all skin bleaching is not against the law.
