Nigerian Model In “Racist Dove Ad” Opens Up | “I Am Not A Victim, Video Was Misinterpreted”

Featured Image

The Nigerian model who became the “the unwitting poster child for racist advertising” after the Dove advert she starred in went viral has finally opened up.

Though born in London and raised in Atlanta, Lola Ogunyemi, the Nigerian model in the advert, has said that she is “not a victim” and that the video was “misinterpreted”.

Lola Ogunyemi explained in a comment piece for The Guardian that Dove was trying to say that women of all skin types and colours deserve smooth skin – but that message had been lost in unfortunate editing to the clip being shared on social media.

The ad went viral after screenshots showing Ogunyemi taking off her shirt to reveal a white woman underneath were posted on Twitter.

Scores of “displeased” social media users pointed out that it echoed old racist adverts that sold soap by claiming it was strong enough to make a black person white.

As a result of this, the beauty company has issued an apology for an advertising campaign branded “racist” which included an image of a black woman removing her top to reveal a white model underneath.

She wrote: ‘If I had even the slightest inclination that I would be portrayed as inferior, or as the “before” in a before and after shot, I would have been the first to say an emphatic “no”. I would have (un)happily walked right off set and out of the door.

“That is something that goes against everything I stand for.”

Lola said that after the ad went out, people called her to congratulate her – especially for being the first model to appear in the line-up, and ‘for representing Black Girl Magic’. ‘I loved it, and everyone around me seemed to as well,’ the model wrote. ‘I think the full TV edit does a much better job of making the campaign’s message loud and clear.”

Ogunyemi added that, while she doesn’t believe the Dove ad was intentionally racist, advertisers need to ‘look beyond the surface and consider the impact their images may have, specifically when it comes to marginalised groups of women’.

“I can see how the snapshots that are circulating have been misinterpreted, considering the fact that Dove has faced a backlash in the past for the exact same issue. There is a lack of trust here, and I feel the public was justified in their initial outrage. Having said that, I can also see that a lot has been left out. The narrative has been written without giving consumers context on which to base an informed opinion.”

Shakira And Gerard Pique Hit By Split Rumours

Featured Image

There are strong indications that Shakira and her footballer boyfriend Gerard Pique have been hit by split rumours, as new reports claim the two are longer living together, with Colombian superstar Shakira the one to instigate the split.

The couple, who have been together for six years and have two sons together, were last seen together in Argentina in June at the wedding of Gerard’s former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi to his childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo.

A source told Spanish site Cotilleo that 40-year-old Shakira had initiated the split, saying she could ‘no longer cope with the situation’ with her footballer husband, and may have ‘moved out’ of the house they share.

‘It’s something serious and she has been the one who has finally made the decision,’ the source said.

While Pique and Shakira face all these rumours, the Barcelona star seemed to reveal his affection and love for Shakira.

This is not the first time the couple have had to defend themselves against split claims, after Pique poured cold water on rumours he and Shakira are on the verge of splitting by sharing a sweet family photo few weeks ago.

The Hips Don’t Lie singer Shakira had also previously praised her FC Barcelona star boyfriend on his parenting style, claiming he’s her ‘biggest support’ when it comes to raising their children.

 “He’s got his feet on the ground and is very practical about problem-solving. When I get stressed about how to organise things or juggle it all, he helps put it all in perspective.”

“And he is my biggest support. We’re both very hands-on parents, so it never feels like one is carrying the entire load on their own. He probably lets them have a little more chocolate than I’d like, though,” she had said.

Court Dissolves Toke Makinwa’s 3-Year-Old Marriage To Maje Ayida

Featured Image

An Igbosere High Court in Lagos has dissolved the three-year-old marriage between a popular radio presenter, Toke Makinwa, and her estranged husband, Maje Ayida, on Thursday.

NAN reports that the court cited Ayida’s adulterous lifestyle as the reason for its decision to dissolve the union.

Nigerians React As Toke Makinwa Says “Guys Who Whatsapp Call Girls Are Lazy” (Watch Video)

Makinwa, the co-host of the ‘Morning Drive’ on Rhythm 93.7FM, had on March 9, 2016, approached the court, seeking that it split the union on the grounds that her husband committed adultery.

The blogger and author had told the court that her husband committed adultery with his mistress, Anita Solomon, adding that the relationship produced a child.

She said since their marriage was contracted, the husband had “behaved in a way she could not reasonably be expected to continue to bear”.

She also said the husband was cruel towards her, adding that their differences became irreconcilable.

While delivering judgement, Justice Morenike Obadina, held that Ayida filed an answer to the petition but did not give oral evidence in support of it.

The judge said the position of the law was settled as pleadings did not amount to evidence.

“Pleadings on which no evidence was led are deemed abandoned. Therefore, Ayida’s evidence is deemed abandoned.

“The effect being that the petitioner’s evidence is unchallenged and uncontroverted,’’ Obadina ruled.

The judge said the issue of cruelty which the petitioner (Makinwa) relied on was established because of the “mental and emotional stress” she was subjected to by her husband.

Obadina said Makinwa had sufficiently proven that the husband committed adultery and continued to flaunt his adulterous relationships even to her face.

“I hold that the marriage has broken down on grounds of intolerable behaviour.

“I hereby pronounce a `Decree Nisi’ dissolving the marriage between Makinwa and Ayida which was administered at the Federal Marriage Registry, Ikoyi, Lagos, on Jan. 15, 2014.

“The order Nisi shall become absolute three months from today unless within that period sufficient cause is shown why it should not be made absolute,” Obadina said.

Tyrese Goes At Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Over Fast 9 Delay

Featured Image

After it was announced by Universal that the latest movie in the Fast and Furious franchise, “Fast 9” would be delayed by a year with the new date being set at April 2020, it seems like that decision didn’t go down well with all the members of the cast.

On Wednesday night, Tyrese Gibson, who plays Roman in the franchise, took to his Instagram account to call out his co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for being the cause.

He wrote

“#PSA Congratulations to @TheRock and your brother in law aka 7 bucks producing partner @hhgarcia41 for making the fast and the furious franchise about YOU – And like you, DJ even if they call I will not be deleting this post. Gn folks see you in 2020 April #FastFamily right? Nah….. it’s about #TeamDewayne #3yrs will it be worth the wait? #NoShaw just Hobbs will this be another #BayWatch? Guys guys just relax I’m just a passionate film critic.”

Check out the post below

Tyrese

This isn’t the first time Tyrese has taken to Instagram to call out his Fast and Furious costar, he had earlier expressed his displeasure with The Rock in the past when rumors surfaced that the next installment in the franchise was being held back in favor of a standalone movie for The Rock’s character.

In a deleted comment on one of The Rock’s pictures, Tyrese wrote, “If you move forward with that #Hobbs Movie you will have purposely ignored the heart to heart moment we had in my sprinter. I don’t wanna hear from you until you remember what we talked about. I’m on your timeline cause you’re not responding to my text messages – #FastFamily is just that a family…….. We don’t fly solo.”

In another deleted comment, he continued, “I have never and will never have a problem with this major movie star he’s my brother. I’m simply trying to reach him cause he won’t call me back about this solo #HobbsMovie I want you to shoot it just not right now cause the #Fast9 release date has already been announced and we can’t let our loyal fans #FastFamily or our loyal fast and furious FANS down on any level from pushing the date……..

Jared Leto To Play Hugh Hefner In Late Playboy King’s Biopic

Oscar-winning actor, Jared Leto has taken on the role of the late playboy mogul, Hugh Hefner in an upcoming biopic.

Director of the biopic, Brett Ratner spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about Jared Leto and the upcoming film. “Jared is an old friend,” he said. “When he heard I got the rights to Hef’s story, he told me, ‘I want to play him. I want to understand him.’ And I really believe Jared can do it. He’s one of the great actors of today.”

Hugh Hefner passed away at the age of 91 on September, 27, 2017.

Back in April, Ratner invited Leto to the Playboy Mansion for the premiere of Amazon’s docuseries American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story, an occasion which also marked Hugh Hefner’s 91st birthday. The director had hoped to introduce the 45-year-old Leto to Hefner that evening, knowing that he would play him in the film, but due to Hefner’s health he wasn’t greeting guests.

However, the producer doesn’t seem to be worried, “There’s enough footage on Hef out there that Jared will be able to get as much information as he wants,” Ratner said.
