Nigerian author, Reno Omokri, has dished out a piece of advice to women who bleach their skin and surgically enhanced their bodies.
Taking to his Instagram page, Reno Omokri noted that women do not have to bleach or undergo surgical enhancement to be pretty.
Going further, the lawyer used former Miss World, Agbani Darego-Danjuma as an example.
According to him, Agbani did not bleach her skin or undergo a surgical procedure and she still ended up getting married, having a child, and is a source of joy to herself and her race.
Reno went on to admonish women to love their dark skin and live a life worthy of emulation.
In his words;
“When you bleach and surgically enhance your body, you are not just saying ‘I hate myself’, you also teach young dark skinned girls to likewise hate themselves. No matter how many rich old men date you, you remain a danger to yourself and society! Love your dark skin. Live a life worthy of emulation.
Look at your photos before you bleached. You were the epitome of beauty. A natural African woman. You do not need to be light skinned and have surgically enhanced features to be loved. You were already lovely. Look at @AgbaniDarego.
The first and only Nigerian to win the Miss World Pageant. Black and beautiful. She did not bleach or surgically enhance herself. Yet, she is married, has a child, and is a thing of joy to herself and her race.
A beacon of virtue and pride to the Black Race. Young Black girls can look at her and feel beautiful. Black is Beautiful. Say it with me-I’m Black and I am proud!”
Replying to a man who said that black is evil, Reno wrote;
Your mind has been manipulated by colonialism and European Christendom. Read Scripture. “The LORD said He would dwell in the DARK cloud”-1 Kings 8:12. Scripture further says “I am BLACK, but lovely”. This is why I have campaigned against bleaching.
It promotes warped thinking like this. Moses was married to a Black African woman (Numbers 12:1). It was her Black father that taught him much of his knowledge (Exodus 18:24). Black is BEAUTIFUL, not evil!”
