Here we go again with the light skinned vs dark skinned debate.

In an interview with Encomium Magazine, Nollywood actress Adesua Etomi claims she had faced some challenges in getting roles due to her being light-skinned.
Her exact words below:
“…there is the prejudice of being light skinned. There is a school of thought that says Nollywood likes light skinned actors, so a few mischievous people will allude to that being a reason for the amount of work that has fallen on my plate. I wish this was the case and while everyone is entitled to their opinion, no Director has told me I got a role because I was light skinned.”

Do you guys agree with her? I can’t help but crack up because this is like a white person crying about reverse racism when in fact they are the people doing the discrimination or getting favours most.
Moreover I’m shocked Adesua is  getting roles with her so-so acting. Girrrrl please have some seat!
