Reggae Artist Vybz Kartel Bleaches His Skin, Says It's No Different Than Tanning!
Formerly brown-skinned reggae artist Vybz Kartel is walking around about five shades lighter to the shock and dismay of his fans. Get the deets on how Vybz went from cocoa to butter pecan inside...
Vybz Kartel, a Jamaican Reggae and dancehall artist, recently lightened his skin and it's not going over well with his fans. For his part, Vybz says his skin lightening is similar to tanning. SMH.
When asked about the change Vybz replied,
"This is my new image. You can expect the unexpected. I feel comfortable with black people lightening their skin. They want a different look. It's tantamount to white people getting a sun tan."
Although he won't reveal what he is using to change his complexion, some sources say that his newly endorsed brand of cake soap can lighten the skin. But even that is up for debate since fellow artist, Bounty Killer, claims his own mother has used Vybz's cake soap and her skin has not changed.
First Sammy Sosa....now this. How do you feel about black folks going a few shades lighter?
