Socialite Vera Sidika has left netizen entertained after posting a photo of herself that appears darker than her usual look.
Vera, who posted the photo on Instagram, 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 both Instagram and Twitter were quick to react to the photo.
@keaganmakonda8 on Instagram said: “The true definition of “I’ll show you my true color”.”
Others took it positively. “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 ❤️❤️,” @thechristiangirl_38 commented on Instagram.
The photo got over 23000 likes on Instagram within one hour.
The photo, however, is a hoax. She used a tool called frequency separation that can change the color of any snapshot one wants to take.
Frequency separation is a modern process that gives you complete control over the delicate textures and color in your images.
