According to her, she mixed lemon together with her body cream and applied it on her skin, unfortunately this only left her with patches on the skin even up till date.
In her words:
“I actually did try to bleach my skin when I was about, I think 14 or 15 years. Even now I have patches on my back. My mom was cleaning my room and saw the cream that I used to mix with lemons. She wasn’t angry. it was more her disappointment. So I stopped but I was always insecure about being dark.”
