One holds a golden Oscar statue and the other shines in golden bleaching cream bottles!

Cameroonian singer Dencia has called Oscar Award winning actress Lupita Nyong'O 'a slave' in a recent tweet she posted over the weekend. The singer took offence to the actress' Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon’s speech last Thursday; which made reference to her controversial bleaching cream, Whitenicious.

According to the Beri Beri singer, Lupita had no right to discredit her hard-earned achievement.

Duh cuz I won’t accept a role because they think I look like a slave, I work hard and decide what I want 2 do but she can’t do that, the white man got their lil slave lol.

Did she mean… got her lil slave a**?

Critics have blasted the singer for going to such extremes calling the Kenyan beauty a white man’s slave because, actually Lupita didn’t centre her speech on Dencia's move to change black women's skin color or encourage it. The truth is Lupita’s speech about Dencia's bleaching cream went thus:

I want to take this opportunity to talk about beauty, Black beauty, dark beauty. I received a letter from a girl and I’d like to share just a small part of it with you: "Dear Lupita," it reads, "I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’ Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.

So do you think De  ncia calling Lupita 'a slave' was necessary? Send us your comments.
