Read What Reno Omokri Said About Black Woman's Beauty

Songs of Solomon is part of the books of the old testament in the Bible written by wise King Solomon. It is a book that poetically narrates romantic love between lovers. It was one of the books written by the son of King David.

Reno Omokri former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan has posted on his Twitter page a verse in the Songs of Solomon which proves that it was written in praise of black beauty. Omokri quoted verse 1:5 of the Songs of Solomon thus, "I am black and beautiful".

According to the King James Version of the Bible, the verse expatiates thus -- " I am black, but comely, O you daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon".

Omokri made this post in reaction to a viral picture of a couple who appeared to have bleached their skin.

I think everybody has the right to do whatever they like with their body however, things that are injurious to the human body should not be encouraged, for instance, bleaching of the skin. When you bleach your skin it removes the protective layers on the skin that is meant to protect it from the sun. The health implication of such might be skin cancer.

African ladies need to be proud of their black skin because black is beautiful!
