Oh? You think American universities pay for years abroad!
Cameroonian singer Dencia fiercely defends her ‘Whitenicious’ product in BBC interview.
Whether or not giving Dencia and her skin hyper-pigmentation and dark spot reducing product attention is a good thing or not, the media have been giving her the spotlight quite a bit lately.
After reports of her sold-out skin whitening cream surfaced on the internet earlier this year, EBONY were quick to chat to the artist to get her side of the story. Following that, rumours began to fly around stating Dencia could possibly be interviewed by Oprah’s The O Network for an in production documentary titled ‘Light Girls’, following the success of the ‘Dark Girls’ film.
Now here, in a recent interview with the BBC, Dencia visited the Focus on Africa studios to defend her product, address her transitioning skin tone and whether or not self-hate had anything to do with it. In it, she also alludes to the process of relaxing one’s hair as being similar to addressing what she refers to as hyper-pigmentation and others call skin bleaching.
I say, that which we call skin lightening by any other name would still be as terrible.
All Africa, All the time.
