According to her, people have continued to question her ethnicity in Nigeria because of her extremely light complexing.

White people, on the other hand, do not think she is white enough.

To clear the confusion, she took to her page to pen a heartfelt message addressing the issue.

“Daily, people suffer discrimination induced fear of varying degrees depending on the pressure from the one who considers him/herself superior,” Hilda Dokubo wrote.

“Others are stigmatized for being different, just because they are living with an ailment, a virus or a complexion… etc

“Florence and I live with this and are survivors.

“I survived it through childhood, teenage, young adult and now a full adult. I am glad to work with her and many others as we open up our world to you in a podcast.

“We are black, we are different, we did not play any role in deciding to what parents we are birth or what complexion we turn up in… in the voice of @k8henshaw It is follow come! not chemical-induced. And the hair? Pure, original human hair, Not wigs!

“The whites think we are not white enough, the blacks say we are not dark enough…
Have you ever imagined what it feels like to always have someone ask you… what is your other half? Which of your parent is white? How did you end up with this hair?

“Well… Florence and I are two black females in two continents dealing with the challenges of being different; she as a teenager and I as a public figure.”
