A video was posted on Twitter by @BraQuaye_Gh and it has thrown all of us into shock!
In the video, a woman is seen half-naked in a liquid Whitening Instant Bodywash as said by the person who took the video. The brown part of the skin is seen scraped off leaving the body “white”. Per the amount mentioned in the video (30k) we can tell that the video was shot in Nigeria.
If you have 30,000 Naira which is GHS 463.45, you can do it if you are interested since it’s even December price. The commentator in the video claimed that “the dead cells were peeling off” implying that we dark people walk around with so many dead cells on our bodies and that is why we are dark.
The whole process looks quite scary and very very unhealthy and left us questioning ourselves as to why anyone would subject themselves to such a thing. You might think we are exaggerating but you should watch the video for yourself.

Some Twitter users had a lot to say about the whole bleaching process.

The lady helping them bleach is dark skinned, why hasn’t she turned herself, this shows there’s bad side effects

Just imagine saying to your family “I will be back” and you get back and they are like “who are you asking for”

Black people need global therapy. these are the people raising the next generation, just think about that for a second. No wonder why most of us are hard core self hating coons, literally almost everyone has post colonial/slave mentality I— KMT pic.twitter.com/7iAi0CCI2i

All i see is
1. 1st degree chemical burns.
2. Impending vaginitis
3. Possible skin cancer in the long run.

I just don’t understand why people do this. Ask any naturally fair person, maintaining the skin ain’t easy! You can’t just change creams or soap anyhow! Why will I now want to go and put myself in trouble that God already saved me from? Do they have extra lives saved somewhere?

Omg don’t do this to yourselves people please. Your melanin protects you from getting sick! There is a reason we need it!

I’m only this light because the sun never shined in my homeland. Why would anyone do this? My skin burns and falls off my body after 30 minutes of direct sun. 🤷🏼♀️

She said ‘dead cells peeling off’, so dark skin people are just walking around with dead cells on them? And when the dead cells have peeled off, they become fair? Lol.

What is so wrong with just having dark skin?!?!? How have we been brainwashed to think the skin we were born with is not good enough. Damn. pic.twitter.com/4xWXqL137y
