Yvonne Nelson says she's not bleaching; releases statement

Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has time to respond to reports that she's bleaching her skin. See it below...
My attention has been drawn to recent media reports that I am bleaching my skin and the continuous nature of this wicked, unfounded and absolutely unnecessary misinformation have compelled me to once again respond.
These stories are absolutely not true and do not in any way put food on anybody’s table, does not add value to any body’s life and can only be described as mischief.
I fully understand the dangers of skin bleaching and would not engage in any such venture. I am a lady and I appreciate my God-given looks. I do not need to change my skin colour for any reason.

Truth is that even if I was bleaching, I do not owe anyone any explanation, but I am not bleaching, I have not bleached and I won’t bleach.

I love my skin just the way it is and I do my best to keep it healthy and nice.
If God has remained good to me and continues to make my skin nicer, I do not see how it should be a problem to someone.

In a society that largely frowns on skin bleaching, it would be unfair and very unkind to falsely accuse me of bleaching when I am absolutely innocent of that charge.

As an actress I take different pictures under different shades of light and with different shades of makeup depending on what the picture would be used for.

It is therefore not strange to find different pictures of me looking different. It does not mean I am bleaching and one does not need to be an industry player to know this.

Even in movies, depending on who the director is, there are different lighting angles and brightness levels that can be used to make a character look different and this is no secret. Even a change of weather can have an effect of one’s skin.

I want to use this platform to assure all persons who have expressed worry about these reports that there is no cause for alarm because I am not bleaching, have not bleached and would not bleach.

There are more prudent and beneficial things to focus on and these frequent distractions are of no use.

I should have spent this time focusing on my new movies or memorizing my next script and not responding to false gossips.

Thank you.
Sincerely yours,
Yvonne Nelson

There's a diff between bleaching and tonning of one's skin. Tonning is to maintain your complexion and that's exactly what she's doing and its nice on her. I don't see anything wrong with that. She's a pretty actress and I can see she tries to maintain not just her complexion but her physique as well which is a very good thing. Most of our actresses don't care about their figure, they just eat anything they like, get fat and start looking old,they should learn from her actually.

Unknown said...

Very cultured and brief response unlike Tonto Dikeh who will start fighting like a tout.This is a typical example of how a celeb should behave.

I get her anger.wen I wz in skl, I got soo tanned cuz of sun exposure and I'm naturally light skinned.Once I changed my enviroment after grajing my skin tone returned to its natural state and I even got lighter. I faced a lot of harrasment and accusations of bleaching. It wz hurtful and upseting.derz jst so much that cud alter natural skin tone and also make it better. Some people need to calm down with the "bleaching attack". Dark or fair..we all good looking.

Anonymous said...

All of you guys are hypocritical with double standards. You constatntly accuse people of bleaching but when the person take time out to refute your claims, you ask who it concerns you. You can never please people. You can never win with Nigerians. Linda very soon, they will start accusing you of bleaching too.

Anonymous said...

I'm so tired of this damn silly FOLKTALE.I do not bleach but I hav had darker knees and knuckes since I wz a child.And so do millions of other Human Beings.Uneven skin tone can be natural. It can also be a result of hyperpigmentation which easily affects africans, even asians.So skin "bleaching" is not the only cause pls. RME

Anonymous said...

Its easy to call it trivial when you're not in her shoes. Being constantly probed over ur skin tone can be very Frustrating. Especially since its a sensitive topic in african culture.

Omo men, i find it ironic that many of the people here bash people that bleach meanwhile didnt a recent survey say that Nigerian women are the top bleaching cream users in the world? Even those that will claim they are "toning". All u hypocrites, if u or ur mama, aunties etc dey bleach/tone(all the same) then u really shouldnt be opening ur gaddamn mouf yabbing people about bleaching. And while we're at it, wearing weaves/wigs (esp those that arent ur natural hair texture) bears the same symbolism as bleaching. So if you're gonna knack people for one, pls dont forget the other.
