Reno Omokri – “Only Women Who Hate Themselves Bleach Their Skin”

Written by on November 27, 2020

Nigerian author and lawyer, Reno Omokri has taken to his social media pages to slam women for bleaching and surgically enhancing their bodies.

The former presidential aide to President Jonathan noted that black skin is very beautiful and that women should stop having the impression that you need to be fair before you can be attractive.

He used the former beauty queen, Agbani Darego Danjuma as his case study who is the only Nigerian to ever win the miss world. Reno argued that Darego is black and beautiful and also happily married with a child.

He added that those who bleach their skins have some negative psychological effect on young girls coming up and themselves. Below are his words.

”When you bleach and surgically enhance your body, you are not just saying ‘I hate myself’, you also teach young dark-skinned girls to likewise hate themselves. No matter how many rich old men date you, you remain a danger to yourself and society! Love your dark skin. Live a life worthy of emulation.


“Look at your photos before you bleached. You were the epitome of beauty. A natural African woman. You do not need to be light-skinned and have surgically enhanced features to be loved. You were already lovely.

“Take a look at @AgbaniDarego. The first and only Nigerian to win the Miss World Pageant. Black and beautiful. She did not bleach or surgically enhance herself. Yet, she is married, has a child, and is a thing of joy to herself and her race.

“A beacon of virtue and pride to the Black Race. Young Black girls can look at her and feel beautiful. Black is Beautiful. Say it with me-I’m Black and I am proud!
