Actress Ella Mensah Says She Whitened Her Skin Because She Wanted Roles In Nigerian Movies

She says “I’ve bleached. I don’ht use creams, I use injection”.




Controversial Ghanaian actress, Ella Mensah has revealed that she bleached in order to get roles in Nigerian movies.

She made this known in an interview she had with Deloris Frimpong Manso on the “Delay Show”.

She mentioned that prior to her going to Nigeria, she was dark-skinned but decided to bleach because that was the only way she could get roles in Nigerian movies.

She said “I’ve bleached. I don’ht use creams, I use injection”.

Asked if the injections were expensive, She mentioned that it’s dependent on the level of fairness the individual wants.

This is not the first time the she has made such claims. The Nigerian-based Ghanaian actress, last year attributed her decision to tone her skin to her desire to gain success in the movie industry especially in Nollywood.

According to her, movie producers and directors prefer giving roles to light-skinned actresses at the detriment of talented dark skinned actresses.

‘’If you are a dark-skinned person, your talent alone is not going to push you up because a producer once told me that I have the height, the body and that I am look attractive.

She noted that being fair is her decision and that is to enable her to gain acceptability in the movie industry and to allow her to fit in adding ‘’I thought about it and it is my own skin and thank God I am not going to hurt or kill anybody. So I did it because I love it and also partly because of my job’’ she opined.

    1. Steroids are for broke people.
      Its Glutathione they use.
      Its safe so far you use adequate sun screen

      It is even and oxidant sef.
      It helps to protect against cancer.
      Read up and educate yourself.
      I dont use all that stuff personally cos i dont have tje discipline to have a routine.

      Thanks for "educating" me.
      At least "broke people" use steroids and she is broke; isn't she?
      If she is not broke, why pursue roles in Nollywood?
      Do you consider her an established actress even with all the bleaching?
      It is a sad thing really.

  5. But she still hasn't blown yet!Skin colour shouldn't be a yardstick, talent should. Look at Genevieve, Stephanie, mercy Johnson, yvonneokoro,etc Though, I love her honesty. Some people will tell you their colour just started coming out lol. Yvonne Nelson once bleached but has stopped, even though she denied it. What ever makes you happy I say, as long as you ain't hurting anyone. Also there are safe products that can take you 1to 2 shades lighter without a drastic effect.

  9. Then she obviously has no talent. Dont we have A list dark acteresses in Nigeria? Its when you dont have talent, you start looking for other specs to push you up. At least if they wont give you role because of your talent, they will give because of your looks

  10. so in local industry, its dark vs light segregation.. foreign: white vs black..

    their choice of colour will definitely be induced by the preference of the consumers..

    probably in the next 10,000 years, we won't have dark humans again in africa. they would have all gone extinct.. generation of that time will only have the opportunity to see this wonderful color in a foreign museum...

  11. Yet Genevive Nnaji is the most loved, admired and crushed on actress till date. Skin color has nothing to do with it, your confidence however does.

  20. Ladies be natural. Do not perm your, bleach your skin, fix weave-on, braid with hair attachment,fix fake nails, false lashes. People that do all these are disgusting. No differences whatsever. Fake fake fake ppl. Judging others. Cast no stone if guilty of any of the above or rather live and let live.
