According to her, anytime she attempts to quit, she gets patches on her face and other parts of her skin which forces her to go back.
The ‘Saucy Girl’ hitmaker in an interview on Morning Starr Thursday admitted that she took to skin bleaching in her teen years because it was the norm in James Town, a suburb in Accra, where she grew up.
Sharing her experiences with Morning Starr host Francis Abban, Mzbel said she spends over GH¢1,000 every three weeks for the bleaching cream that keeps her skin in shape.
“Bleaching in James Town at the time was common. It wasn’t a big deal at all,” she said, adding, “There are some bleaching products that cost GH¢1,000 which last for just three weeks.”
“Attempts to stop bleaching have been very difficult as the side effects are so clear when I make the attempt…I am able to afford the cream because I have a job that pays well.
“I regret ever bleaching. I wish I never did bleach. I wish I had someone advising me,” Mzbel said.
The controversial musician disclosed that she now has a foundation through which she uses to advise teenagers against bleaching and teenage pregnancy.
“Whenever I have the opportunity to go to James Town to do charity work, we talk about teenage pregnancy and skin bleaching, and I always use myself as an example.
