American model and entrepreneur Blac Chyna is coming to Lagos to launch her bleaching cream on Sunday, November 25, 2018.
She is partnering with Whitenicious by Dencia to roll out a beauty product called “Whitenicious X Blac Chyna Diamond Illuminating & Lightening Cream”. The whitening goes for N90,750($250 dollars) per jar.
The jar is studded with Swarovski crystals.
The model revealed via her Instagram page that she will be in Lagos to launch the cream.
She wrote: Lagos Nigeria, join me at the first official launch of my face cream this Sunday November 25th at the Whitenicious store from 1-5PM. Everyone is invited.@whitenicious
A lot of Nigerians and even Americans have been reacting to the message on social media. They are criticising her for coming with “a product that will damage lives.” But some people defended her, saying she got the real target market as Nigerians will always buy bleaching cream whether she is coming or not.

“As you await the launch of Blac Chyna bleaching products in Lagos this weekend, this is a simple reminder that you are about to buy a cream that will ruin your kidneys, destroy your natural skin, compromise your liver, make you vulnerable to skin cancer and slowly end your life.”

“The World Health Organization has reported that Nigerians are the highest users of skin whitening products, a whooping 77% of Nigerian women use skin whitening products on a regular basis. its no brainer why Blac Chyna decided to target the Lagos market first.
“Blac Chyna is going to Lagos, Nigeria to promote a bleaching cream and I am honestly disgusted.”
“Black china is going to lagos to sell bleaching cream?????? look at what you people are allowing in your country.
“Well, las, las, trust me Black Chyna will sell out Lagos. You can bet”
