Ella Mensah revealed that she bleached her skin to get roles in Nigerian movies in an interview with Delay.
The Ghanaian actress earlier revealed that she was dark and she bleached an injection which costs £2,000 because that is the only way she could fit in.
According to her, Nigerian 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 attractive’’
“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”
