Kome Osalor seems to have been faced with criticism over the fact that her legs are dark even though she is light in complexion. She clears the air in her recent deposition on the social media.
Presenter & host of the program, “Personalities Places & Events” on African Independent Television (AIT), Kome Osalor is a real diva with over 59,000 followers on Instagram. Apart from her television programme, she is famous on the social media for her stunning figure which she adorns with beautifully tailored clothes. She recently did a very long note to defend herself on why her legs are dark and why she had patches on her skin (we never really knew about the patches, did we?)
Okay, what Kome Osalor said is as follows;
A piece of my heart… So I av been judged a thousand times n insulted a lot, some say black legs hmmm! Yes I av dark legs, they appear really really dark in photos but if you see me in person you won’t even notice they are dark.
Reason for the dark legs I was a very child, I used to climb trees, run etc and recently I sprained my ankle it was so bad because my legs were swollen n I couldn;t walk for a week, had (to) run to mum cos she always has a solution to everything, n she did cos my leg is better now and I can walk but the part that I sprained remained dark till today I dont know why…
Kome Osalor continued
Another reason my skin is not even is because at some point in my life I felt if I was lighter (I won’t lie or try to form) I would be more beautiful, apparently, my caramel skin wasn’t good enuf for me, n I had a lot of light skin friends at the time (2yrs ago) they would even tell u d cream to buy lol, I av a very stubborn skin n all I used never worked, instead all it did was give me patches n darker knuckles n toes..
Mum came n saw my skin lol she threw away everything while I was asleep, I woke up n I was mad cos I spent so uch in purchasing them, then she started to talk to me, encouraged me n said, my daughter ur a beautiful black girl pls don’t change, infact my elder sis stopped talking to me cos I was toning, I didn’t know why they were so bothered then, experience is d best teacher, I learnt to embrace my black skin all I use now is loccitane oil n fair n flawless correction fluid for my leg to clear the darker parts n I go for body scrub ever(y) month, am beginning to see results gradually, any suggestions will help too… remember I never posted a picture with a caption that says says flawless or on fleek..
Kome concludes her long article with a piece of advise;
Every woman has something they are battle(ing) with everyday this is my own struggle forgive me for being human, n if ur perfect n have no struggle kudos to u… am not writing this is to judge anyone if toning ur skin makes u happy. pls feel free, as long as ur happy that’s all that matters…Pls do u n let me do me…. Let’s go to general topics in life women why are we so judgemental, why don’t we love each other, why does putting another woman down makes us happy but now I know why they were.
