It seems that Ghanaian Actress Benedicta Gafah isn?t too happy about critics accusing her of bleaching her skin. A fan? who obviously doesn?t know the difference between Skin Toning and Bleaching and has no idea about Benedicta Gafah?s background commented on her Instagram post:
?Madam u r bleaching??we saw ur colour wen u came into movie industry.
The actress therefore responded to the skin lightening accusations with a throwback photo of herself without make-up via Instagram @empress_dictabee:
?If u wana Know Who I really am ..ask those u knw around me first?..I just know what to take in to maintain my body,,some of u don?t train to take excess water out of the body,,u don?t even go to de hospital to know the type of foods n vegetables good for ur body, skin n blood?.my body n skin is something I don?t play with?i knw i do have a soft skin n can easily get stretch marks,and in no tym my skin will fade out?if whatever am taught helps me??and will help me why must I bleach?..I started working on this 3yrs ago?..I think of the future and not now,I wanna be dat benny who will proudly talk of her body n skin in 10yrs tym even after birth?.and also wana be de lady who will be proud of herself when she takes her clothes off?.I want my body n skin to always do the talking,,whiles some of u guys think otherwise?some people?s interest are in outtings,smoking,alcohol,fatty stuffs e.t.c some of us too de gym n the doctor?.will nvr take in tins dat will cos me harm today or in de future..never?Piece of advice ladies?let ur body n skin be ur priority?.tanx
