My Sumbi Is As Dark As Charcoal, I Regret Bleaching My Skin — Comedian Leila Kachapizo
Several celebrities and socialites in Uganda continue to bleach and they are proud of it. Socialites Prima Kardashi and Bad Black say changing their colors made them feel confident. They can never be dark again.
It is, however, not the same feeling for comedienne Leila Kachapizo who says she regrets changing her skin color. Her sumbi is so dark that sometimes, she forgets it belongs to her.
“First, it’s hard to access the lotions we use to maintain the light skin. Secondly, when you bleach, they tell you not to smear the private parts. They stay dark while other areas of the body turn light. It makes men uneasy during sex,” Kachapizo says about her experience.
She adds that it is hard to keep a man when some parts are brown while others are dark.
