If Instagram posts are to be believed, Queen Afia Schwarzenegger has joined the growing list of African celebrities who have chosen to lighten their skin...

The comedian endorses a wide array of beauty products on her social media pages, all with seemingly health properties.

But a recent post revealed that the star was advertising a product that promises 'younger and brighter skin'. The pills contained an ingredient known as glutathione, a powerful skin whitening agent that is commonly used in skin lightening products.

Afia's skin tone has long been the talk of the industry with many accusing her of unashamedly bleaching her brown skin.

Actress Diamond Appiah once publicly accused the star of going overboard on skin lightening products. She wrote in a social media post alongside a pic of Afia; "SAY NO TO SKIN BLEACHING TO PREVENT ROASTED PLAINTAIN TYPO SKIN !! #BLEACHING SQUAD #PEAU CLAIR SKIN IS BAE".

Afia is not the only Ghanaian celeb to be fond of fairer skin...

Singer Mzbel recently confessed to not only bleaching her skin but for seeking help for 'self-hatred'.

In a social media post, she wrote; “I use to think I was ugly. I thought being black was dirty, so I took to skin bleaching and suffered horrible side-effects years later.

"But that is the result of self-hate. I shared my story and got help. Now I have learned to say: I’m a beautiful black woman”.
