Skin Bleaching African Singer Dencia To Star In Documentary On Oprah’s Network

Via Jaguda Africa reports:

The good side to controversy is the publicity that comes from it, and Dencia is really riding the wave that Whitenicious is bringing her. She’s becomes somewhat of a weird phenomenon both in Africa and in the United States where many (including Oscar winning Lupita Nyong’o) have come out to criticize her and her skin lightening product.

She’s received interview spots from Ebony Magazine and others. Right now we’re getting word that she will be interviewed in Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network for a new documentary, Light Girls.

The documentary is inspired by a film by Bill Duke titled Dark Girls.



Do you think skin bleaching hater should be featured on the documentary? The skin bleaching phenomenon is a sadly a world-wide trend so her insight into self-hating might be invaluable.
