In 2016, it became nearly impossible to look at Bukom Banku twice. He had bleached to veins and nothing was stopping him.
After social media came after him unabated, he finally stopped and got back his dark skin complexion.
We thought that train had long left the station and we were done suffering that until pictures of him bleached to veins again with floor-sweeping eyelashes popped up.
It is almost as if he was in some sort of unknown contest with Bobrisky and looking at dethroning her to be the only African Barbie.
He says he only bleached because he wanted to be popular again.
“This bleaching is for a joke. Just when my name is coming down small, then I do something then my name is wake up in the Ghana and people will shout fresh, fresh. When I bleaching myself, my name also wakes up but my big father tells me that make I stop so I stop.”
That has not deterred him one bit. He has asked Ghanaians to shut up and stop making noises like empty tins.
He adds that he would stop bleaching again but at the ending of this month so Ghanaians should zip it already.
“I will stop the fresh January 31 so don’t shout like an empty tin.”
