Dencia seeks attention again using Lupita Nyong’o. Last year, Nigerian-Cameroonian pop star and creator of Whitenicious skin bleaching cream, Dencia gained international fame after calling out Mexican-born Kenyan actress, Lupita Nyong’o for speaking negatively about her skin lightening cream line during her acceptance speech on black beauty at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon.
The “Beri Beri” singer, who is always looking for every opportunity to attack Lupita in order to get attention as a result of the “The 12 Years A Slave” Hollywood star status is at it again. After hearing the news about the multiple award-winning actress’s stolen $150k Oscar pearl dress that was taken from her LA hotel, @IamDencia took to Twitter and wrote: “Moral of the story, cut Ur coat according to Ur size. If you can’t afford it in real life, don’t borrow, beg or steal it. #BorrowposeGoneWrong.
And as usual, Lupita has not answered her rants. The Lancome ambassadress and People magazine’s most beautiful person in the world is good at ignoring Dencia’s tantrum but, the “Super Girl” singer is not ready to give up her hatred for the actress as it’s a good way for her to gain free publicity.
According to the Yaounde born businesswoman, her Whitenicious skin product range sold out after her attack on the star. Before attacking Lupita last year, Dencia was only known in the Nigerian and other African media. After her attack on Lupita, she gained international fame with articles and interview requests from international media houses in the United States, United Kingdom and several others.
Part of Lupita’s speech that was alleged to be a letter sent from a young black girl contemplating on bleaching and the reason Dencia became her ‘arch-enemy’ read “Dear Lupita, 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.”
