Funke Etti, in a recent interview, has shot down claims flying around that she is bleaching her skin. She also laid to rest rumours circulating that she encouraged women to engage in the participate in bleaching.
Funke said: “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.”
She continued, “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.”
She also spoke on her decision to start hosting a talk show on Lagos Television. She explained: “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.
“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.”
