Mosun Filani reacts to bleaching allegations

Mosun was recently trolled on social media by a fashion designer, who called her out for selling body creams to people even though she (Mosun) had a bad skin. The actress had earlier called out the Ibadan-based fashion designer for making for her a bad dress that didn’t fit well, after paying her a huge amount of money for the service. The fashion designer’s criticism was in response to Mosun’s outburst on social media.

On her Instagram page, the fashion designer, Ayokunnumi Emoruwa had said, “You have the nerve to call me a scam forgetting you sell cream to people and your skin is an apology full of filter (sic). When you live in a glass house, don’t throw stones.”

In an interview with Saturday Beats, Mosun noted that she decided to call the designer out on social media because that was where the transaction was initiated.

She said, “I am mostly on social media because of my fans and business. I met the designer on social media and that was why when she messed up, and was unapologetic about it; I took her back to where I met her – social media.

“Most of my clients communicate to me via video calls and nobody can edit an image on a video call. I rarely wear makeup; I don’t know what she was talking about, she was just trying to get back at me for what she did wrong. I don’t know what her problem is. Those who know me know I can go out at anytime.

“I wanted to give an upcoming fashion designer like her a chance; they always complain about us patronising the known designers and that was why I gave her a chance. I tried to encourage growing businesses; but now the whole thing has blown up in my face. I paid her a lot of money. I was supposed to pay her N135, 000 for two clothes so I deposited N100, 000 to pay a balance of N35, 000. I can pay a known designer with this amount.

“I don’t care about what people say, I do whatever I like. Many people don’t know that there is a difference between bleaching and (skin) lightening. Bleaching is using chemical products to change your skin colour; the effect is very fast and harsh. When it comes to whitening and lightening, organic products are used. They come in different forms. I use natural things like rice water, orange peels to make my products. My skin cannot look the way it used to look five years ago.
