Kenyan socialite, Vera Sidika sent the internet into a mini-frenzy on Monday after she posted a new photo on Instagram with her old melanated look back.
The socialite cum entrepreneur shared a new photo of herself on Instagram with her skin looking way darker than usual.
She tagged it: “Never be defined by your past… It was just a lesson, not a life sentence. Feels good to be back!!! Black don’t crack. #backtoblack #missedmymelanin #stillbeautiful #blackbarbie.”
Nigeria’s original black Barbie, Beverly Osu congratulated her on her decision, writing: “Welcome back boo… Super proud of you for this.”
But a number of people called her out and accused her of editing her photo to look black. Some told her she’s mocking God by easily switching colors back and forth.
Some said she can no longer afford the expensive bleaching cream. While others laughed at her for finally admitting she’s been bleaching and not naturally light-skinned.
