Where did you get your looks from? Is it from the United Kingdom like socialite Vera Sidika? Ooops! Some of our women have for some time now been crazy about skin-lightening aka skin-bleaching aka kutoa tint aka kuvera sidika.

Since her rise to fame, thanks to the 12 Years A Slave Oscar award-winning film, she has over and over again talked of how she dealt with low self esteem because of her skin’s “blackness”.
