Becca, a Ghanaian musician, and her Nigerian husband, Tobi Sanni, are involved in one such case. Whether Becca decided to lighten her skin tone in order to appease her husband or as a reaction to the cutthroat environment of the entertainment industry has been a topic of recent controversy.
Becca’s spouse, Tobi Sanni, publicly acknowledged in 2021 that he was drawn to ladies with fair skin and voluptuous figures. He made the amusing claim to “hawk” and “pounce” on these women in direct messages in a social media post. Many conversations were triggered by this discovery, particularly in light of how it would affect Becca’s perception of herself.
Tobi Sanni fueled the flames by openly contesting that he was legally married to Becca and implying that their romance consisted of chasing ladies on Instagram for fun. A public figure’s personal life can be significantly impacted by such remarks, and in this instance, it almost put their union in jeopardy.
Becca was put in a difficult situation as a result of the difficulties surrounding their relationship and Tobi’s remarks. She changed, whitening her skin, as a result of pressure to appease her husband and live up to social norms in the face of industry competition.
Tobi Sanni provided insights into the intricacies of celebrity interactions on social media while also implicitly addressing the problem.
In a statement that Aba The Great claimed to be his own, he underlined his own ability to handle these kinds of conversations while stressing the importance of managers in managing celebrity accounts. It was implied that one should not take celebrity endorsements at face value.
‘Please a quick one before I hit my bed, if u are fond of entering into celebrity dms for chats or deals, please note this, they are not always the ones managing the accounts, their managers do the posting and chatting…. No one plays better than Dr. Tobi, very smart and witty… if you fine and you slide inside dm p3 ego turn hawk, pounce on u, sweet talk u n even tell u marriage no Dey paper inside, meaning court no legalize am 😂😂😂😂 heeeer! no sleep for the wicked… 😂😂😂’ – Tobi Saani reportedly wrote.
Becca’s choice to change her skin tone highlights concerns about how relationships and cultural forces affect one’s sense of self. Becca’s decision to maintain popularity and acceptance by adhering to a particular image may have been influenced by the entertainment business, which is sometimes criticised for pushing particular beauty standards.
The complicated nature of relationships in the public eye is emphasised by the Becca-Tobi Sanni story. It’s unknown if Becca decided to lighten her skin tone in order to appease her spouse, comply with social norms, or for a mix of reasons.
It’s clear, though, how these kinds of public disclosures may affect someone’s sense of self and how far some people will go to survive in the cutthroat world of entertainment.
As the conversation on this issue carries on, it is critical to address the subject sensitively and take into account the larger effects of societal norms on individual liberties and self-expression.
