Actress Khanyi Mbau has addressed the main reason of lightening her skin, she encourages others to be comfortable with their beauties.
The star said lightening skin does not change race because “being black doesn’t mean you have to look black.”
“Being black doesn’t mean you have to look black. Being black is a state of being. Being black is a sense of spirit. Being black is a sense of how you think and how you see yourself but it doesn’t mean you have to look indigenous. Why are we living in a world that won’t allow us to explore and be who we want to be?”
Khanyi Mbau said most of haters who shading her for lightening her skin but they’re the ones come to her DM asking for advice.
The actress and media star explain the reason behind her skin lightening, she said it is common for people in entertainment to apply it because the industry has different culture and celebs should be feel comfortable.
“They may not be as honest and open as I am. 90 percent of your celebrities lighten their skin. It is part of the game. Remember our game is different to your game … it is a culture. It is how we play. We don’t want to look ordinary because we do not live an ordinary lifestyle,” she said.
