Nigerian singer Dencia has been vigorously defending for her skin bleaching cream, Whitenicious, for months. The popstar has been accused of promoting white supremacy with the product that she claims is intended for use on dark spots.

She recently attacked Lupita Nyong'o on Twitter for delivering critical words for the singer and the product in her speech at ESSENCE's Women in Hollywood Luncheon.

Despite the flack she's received for her endorsement, Dencia refuses to back down. She appeared recently on British television to debate image activist Phinnah Ikeji of Black Role Models UK about the potentially damaging message the product sends to young Black girls
