An increased number of dark Kenyan women are opting to lightening their skin in a bid to keep up with the stiff competition from their lighter counterparts.
This is despite the fact that some of these creams contain substances that have been banned by the Kenya Bureau of Standards .
Speaking during an exclusive interview with Classic 105 Churchill comedian Stella Bunei alias Jemutai says
“I have never been told to lighten my skin despite the fact that I’m dark skinned.
women who lighten their skins have self esteem issues,their esteem iko down If you work hard you don’t need to bleach you will still be able to outshine others.
Just work hard because at the end of the day this things backfire ,what will you do if it does?”
Speaking about her career Jemutai says that she has been lucky enough not to have faced so many challenges unlike other comedians.
“I guess mimi niliangukia so sikupatana na all those challenges ,where for you to join a certain field you have to know someone.
If you are not funny your are not funny it doesn’t matter whether you know someone or not.”
To those ladies who want to join comedy but they do not know how Jemutai says
“Come on board today do not wait for tomorrow you never know you might be the savior that the comedy world had been waiting for.”
