I was bullied and mocked for my skin – Beverly Naya
Nollywood actress Beverly Naya who opened up on her own experience while shooting her new documentary ‘Skin’, disclosed that she was mocked and bullied for her dark skin.
The UK-born Nollywood actress who disclosed that her documentary which premieres on Sunday, March 31 would bring a new dimension to film production in Nollywood, revealed that she’s still in shock from what she gathered from some Nigerians, most especially, controversial cross dresser and bleaching cream merchant, Bobrisky while researching the documentary.
Beverly Naya who recounted how she was mocked and bullied over her dark skin, said she is just contributing her own best to stop it.
The actress said;
As an industry, we need to diversify. As a person, I need to impact on people. I grew up in very difficult situation. I was bullied and mocked for my skin. Same problem is trending and I have to contribute my best to stop it.“I interviewed about 30 people, including Bobrisky, for this project and I had the opportunity to travel to my home town, Delta, for the first time. I aim at being Nigeria’s prolific documentary expert.”
