Ghanaian musician Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah popularly known as Mzbel has denied a Starr FM report that she spends over GHC1,000 on bleaching creams to keep her skin in shape.
In a statement released on her Instagram page, Mzbel said “the radio station decided to twist what I said on the show to create an impression contrary to my intention”.
Starr FM reported earlier that the ‘Saucy Girl’ hit-maker had admitted that she took to skin bleaching after completing her senior secondary education because it was the norm in the locality she grew up.
“Bleaching in James town at the time was common. It wasn’t a big deal at all”.
“Attempts to stop bleaching have been very difficult as the side effects are so clear when I make the attempt…I am able to afford the cream because I have a job that pays well,” Mzbel was quoted as saying.
She further revealed that “there are some bleaching products that cost GHC1,000 which lasts for just three weeks”.
But in a swift response, Mzbel said she was rather advising young girls to stay away from the practice, insisting Starr FM distorted her statement.
