Socialite Vera Sidika has left Kenyans online reacting after she posted a photo of herself that appears slightly darker than her usual skin color.
Sidika shared the image on Instagram and captioned it: “Never be defined by your past…it was just a lesson, not a life sentence. Feels good to be back, black don’t crack. #BackToBlack #MissedMyMelanin #StillBeautiful #BlackBarbie.”
Kenyans on social media were quick to react to the photo.
@keaganmakonda8 on Instagram commented: “The true definition of “I’ll show you my true color”.”
@thechristiangirl_38 said: "Transformer Vera, this is even bigger than you even think! Encouraging young women to love the skin they were born in. Big ups Vee, you look amazing."
@McWalangu noted: "Heeee Vera back to factory reset, the blacker the berry the sweeter."
@kerubo_hillary stated: "Well well well....I hope it’s just editing...but I think this dark version of Vera Sidika looks more cute."
@Ot7lov quipped: "The way vera sidika is playing with KENYANS on social media how is this even possible I feel like ameedit that photo."
The socialite is on record saying she spent millions of shillings to bleach her skin abroad.
It appears like Sidika used a tool that changes the color of any snapshot one wants to take.
