Actress, Habibat Jinad has averred that her colleague, Mide Martins bullied her into bleaching.

In a recent interview on Talk To B podcast, Jinad alleged she was verbally abused by Mide Martins, a colleague, on the set of a movie.

She claimed that Mide insulted her and called her a “monkey with a black face”.

Jinad said people always complain about her dark complexion, advising her to “lighten up”.

She added that she “decided to change after Mide insulted me” to make people happy.

“We were at Afeez Owo’s rehearsal ground and a colleague of mine did something wrong which I was not a part of,” she said.

“They told us to kneel down. Mide Martins, my boss and some other people were there. Mide Martins insulted me and called me someone with a black face.

 “She said so many things to abuse me and I felt very bad. I later found out that she called me a monkey with a black face.

“I’m sure that till now she might not know that what she said to me the other day somehow affected me.

“Even before then, whenever I was on set, people would say that I’m too dark-skinned and that I need to lighten up.

“So after Mide insulted me, I thought about what I could do to make these people happy. So I decided to change.”
