TALE OF TWO CITES ............... BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL ALL THE TIME.... Lupita Nyong'o, best supporting actress 2014. According to Hollywood, she is now a celebrity. Not for her acting. Don't let us get it twisted. But for the color of her skin. It took the gurus in Hollywood up to 2014 to suddenly realize that BLACK is beautiful. If you believe that, then you will believe that all we had was 12 YEARS OF SLAVERY! I find words like "she is beautiful," "Wow she is gorgeous," condescending and compromising. Gorgeous and beautiful ladies like Lupita, are a dime and dozen in Africa. Where BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL. Hollywood should tell us something we don't know. MEANWHILE, in Nollywood the lighter your skin is the more you are celebrated. Here in Africa, especially Nigeria we are black but not proud. So, to be a Nollywood star, you BLEACH your skin. Using the concussion of Topisene Gel, Topifram, Black Soap,Pepsodent Toothpaste and Ambi cream. Some even travel all the way to Hollywood to get the bleaching perfected. Like the great Fela Anikulapo-Kuti said" you go YELLOW pass Yellow." Now combined with lame acting skills, you are a Nollywood celebrity. And the award goes to.................YELLOW FEVER. — with Oluwabam
