She also wrote about the colourism disseminated by the brand, letting her fans and followers know that she is not and would never agree to this matter.
She further added that she cannot and do not endorse the need for any woman to have a lighter skin tone for looking more attractive. She wrote that the dark skin tone is a woman’s beauty and that a woman should wear her skin colour with pride and love.
She lashed the brand and said that all women come in different shapes, colours, personas and sizes so stop defining the beauty standards. She added that all women are beautiful and that both body shaming and racism should not be endorsed.
