Ghana: I'm not bleaching - Veteran actor tells critics
The 64-year-old Akan drama star defended the rumor attributing his complexion to that of the mother.
According to him, his mother is fair in complexion and he took after her.
“I have not bleached, my complexion is one of the things I took from my mother,” he said in a one on one interview with Mz Gee.
Skin bleaching is the act of using chemicals to lighten tone, reduce pigmentation or even out complexion.
Commenting on why Ghanaian veteran actors are dying, he said; “It is a matter of you taking care of yourself, most of them like to drink, smoke and womanize when they start making money and once you indulge in things like that, your life is at stake. Probably not now but it will accumulate and later disturb you.”
He concluded that in as much as he is human and can kick the bucket anytime, women, alcohol and drugs cannot take him to his grave because since he was born, he has never taken alcohol, smoked and he is not into women.
The veteran Akan drama actor appealed to movie directors to consider and feature the old and well-known actors because of their wealth of experience.
He is married with four children.
