Although Adedipe’s application was devoid of any reason for his action, it was learnt the the lawyer elected to withdraw because the defendant did not perfect his brief.

“You know at that time, bleaching and having permed, curly hair meant a lot to people who thought they had arrived. As a musician at my peak, I wanted to feel that sense of belonging so I bleached my skin.
