Nollywood actress, Funke Etti has addressed rumours that she is in support of the use of bleaching creams. She made it known in a recent interview with Herald that she was misconstrued in that publication.
She also revealed her new plans to become a TV host with her own show.
She 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.’
“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 added.
About her new career interest, she 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.
“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.”
