Adesua makes Vogue Magazine but Celebrated with Controversy


Celebration as Nigerian actress Adesua Etomi-Wellington makes Vogue Magazine on an episode titled "A Celebration of Global Talent" but gets controversial comments from Nigerian Women.


Instead of celebrating the woman who have been seen as a Global Talent by well recognised international brand, Vogue, the women are more interested in her skin colour.

The women are interested in why her skin is darker than that of the other women, know fully well that she is even more fair.

On a quick chat with Temi Badmus, founder of Gimmehear, she opened our eyes to contrary argument that the other women are white and since Adesua is representing Africa (Nigeria) as a black continent (country), it is smart to tone her down. Therefore making her skin chocolate in colour.

Meanwhile, Banky W, her husband and Nigerian music star,  have proudly taken to Instagram to celebrate his wifes success.

The Nigerian actress Adesua Etomi-Wellington can’t walk down the street in Lagos without getting mobbed, and if she’s with her husband, the actor Banky Wellington, forget it—a trip to the grocery store launches a thousand selfies. But unlike some of her cohorts on the shoot, she’s more of a third-culture kid, born in Nigeria and raised mainly in England. (She speaks in two fluent accents—Lagos and the British Midlands.) She went to school in Coventry, studied drama at University of Wolverhampton, and then got a nine-to-five job with the fashion arm of a large supermarket chain.
