Nollywood actress, Moyo Lawal, has shared her opinion on what qualifies as skin lightening and her position on it.

The Lagos-born star schooled her Instagram followers on the matter after a post she shared about skin lightening was misinterpreted by some of them.

It all started when Moyo shared a picture of a hand wit snow-white skin and implied that is the only true definatation of a bleached skin which offended some of her followers.

She wrote, “This is what bleaching actually looks like ooh. Otherwise, if you are not the same kind of (since a few pips want to start fights nobody sent them ) black you were when you were younger, then, you too have bleachedΒ …”

When a fan with username @nancymrshustle implied that Moyo was suggesting that black skin is dirty, the Tinsel actress replied, “You are overthinking it jare, half my family is black.”

Moyo is frequently accused of lightening her skin, she has always denied it and instead, credits tomatoes, for skin tone.

β€œI am not bleaching please, I am totally brown-skinned, I just really glow a lot. Hence when light, filter or the sun touches me, I shimmer.Β Chop a tomato today, your skin will glow..,” she wrote on Instagram in March 2016.
