‘I’m only toning my skin’
Contrary to the tale making the rounds, movie star, Funke Etti has denied bleaching. She, however, admitted toning her skin which she said is also common among women.
Speaking with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Saturday, June 4, 2016, the Lagos born thespian expressed total dissatisfaction about the tale, labeling those behind it as rumour mongers.
‘I don’t bleach, and it’s not true I said using bleaching cream is good and advisable for women. When I don’t use it, why will I be advising others to be using it? I even detest it totally. I only tone once in a while which is common among women. It allows your beauty to come out better. That’s all I said.
“There was no where I said bleaching is good for women. I think some rumour mongers are out there just to cause disaffection between myself and some women. I never said that and I am also not bleaching.”
Speaking on her television programme, Arakenge Pelu Funke Etti, the talented actress cum film maker said, “I am now a TV presenter. I have a talk show presently aired on LTV8. It’s called Arakenge Pelu Funke Etti. It’s not a live programme. We have recorded many episodes since we started, but it just showing on LTV 8 in April this year. Very soon, few other stations will join.
“It’s a kind of programme where we bring in celebrities to talk on issues revolving around their lives and careers. And we have featured a lot of entertainment stars and media personalities, including Pasuma, Antar Laniyan, Iyabo Ojo, Kelvin Ikeduba, Alhaji Wasiu Kayode Sodiq, amongst others.”
On why she delved into TV talk show, she said, “I just thought I should also start something side by side acting. A lot of my colleagues are now into music and all that. So, going into a talk show is something I think has also not in any way run contrary to entertainment. And since I started, I have received a lot of commendations from the public. I thank God for that.”
