Before she embarked on her fashion marathon, “everyone said, ‘Brace yourself, Lupita!

Don’t ask me what Dencia does because to be frank, I don’t know…She is part Nigerian and part Cameroonian who claims to be living the high life.

She is pretty much everywhere, doing everything that will make her famous and selling everything—even if the products will cause cancer and reinforce white supremacy, she doesn’t seem to care.

Yesterday, we reported on how Lupita Nyong’o spoke at the Essence Magazine’s 7th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon about the beauty of dark skin—and the fact that her success is greatly due to her skin color. She used her speech to advise dark skin women to be proud of their skin and not to think success cannot come their way simply because they are black.

In the speech, Lupita Nyong’o at a point said;

I want to take this opportunity to talk about beauty, Black beauty, dark beauty. I received a letter from a girl and I’d like to share just a small part of it with you: “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.”
