Blac Chyna is under attack on social media

This week, the American model announced on Instagram that she’d be in Lagos, Nigeria on November 25 to launch her face whitening cream named Whitenicious.

This will be in partnership with Whitenicious, a controversial whitening product brand owned by Cameroonian singer Dencia, and Bobrisky, popular Nigerian male barbie.



Nigerian celebrities weighed in

Why so hypocritical?

Other reactions

Regardless of the blacklash, Blac Chyna will still be in Lagos this Sunday to launch her cream. Emotions aside, it is just business.

Black Friday in Nigeria

Today, all over the world, is Black Friday. A day when shoppers enjoy ridiculous price slashes on their favourite products.

Even though the integrity of brands in Nigeria with regards to Black Friday has always been questionable, they join their counterparts globally to offer “great” deals on goods and services.

Basically, a scam
