The BangDadaDang crooner told men in a recent video that they contribute to women’s insecurities through the kinds of things they say and do.

See transcription of his video below:

“Girls them see their beauty through our eyes.

If a big butt pass and you look at it, another girl is looking at you. In her mind she registers that big butt is in, look at him look at her.

So, when you say negative things about our skin color, it registers in our girls’ mind that we’re not beautiful. And this leads to bleaching cream.

Be careful what you say when you’re upset. Don’t make statements like; see as she black like amala dudu. Instantly, it has a psychological effect on the girl.

We, guys have responsibility too. OK?

We can’t be talking about ‘girls don’t bleach, girls don’t bleach’ yet guys keep saying things to make them insecure and then they end up bleaching.

So, all of us in diaspora from home to abroad…”

Sharing the video, Speed wrote:

“We all have responsibilities to our identity and our race.

Word is bond be careful what you say about yourself your group your race.”

The rapper has been praised for his insight even though, a few people pointed out that the rapper was equally guilty, seeing as he prefers to feature women with big derriere in his videos.
