Kenyan socialite, Bridget Achieng says that she has spent more than Sh10 million to bleach and maintain her skin tone.
In a video on her YouTube Channel, the reality TV star noted that she would have spent even more to lighten and maintain her complexion if she had the money.
"I didn't have money and when I got it, I said I will buy Kenya, I'll buy the world. If I had more money, right now I'd have used Sh50 million," she said.
In a past interview, the mother of one said she decided to bleach her skin after losing several opportunities because of her dark skin tone.
“When I was 22-years old, I went for acting auditions but I failed to qualify due to the color of my skin. In one of the auditions, I was the best candidate but the judge told me my skin tone was not what they wanted,” Bridget said in an interview on Citizen TV.
She also explained that she was not getting any attention from men while growing up and men were only interested in her friends who were light in complexion.
“Sometimes, I would go out with my friends and men would approach them because of their skin tone, and not even look my way because I was dark. I also had self-esteem issues growing up.”
She added: “I vowed to bleach when I got money and in 2014 when I landed employment, I decided to bleach my skin.”
