There have been mixed reactions to Queen Ifrica’s bleching song, ‘Colour of Rejection’, with some Internet trolls accusing the singer of bleaching her skin.
The accusation is like deja vu for the Mi Nah Rub artiste, but she rests easy, noting that criticism comes with the nature of her job.
“My ‘bleaching story’ is being a celebrity and taking on topics that are very touchy and affect a lot of people. I wouldn’t want to be thin-skinned if I am called a bleacher, because at the end of the day, my conscience would have to set me free,” she said.
“I’ve never done that before. I would never do that, and I encourage people to continue to understand what is means to love yourself and to appreciate how the almighty made you. A nuh everybody a rub.”
Queen Ifrica, who is the daughter of veteran ska singer Derrick Morgan, told sources that there was a time when she even wanted to be shades darker. I used to want to have black skin. I used to wish and pray to god seh my colour was like charcoal black because that’s how I loved the colour black and would want to identify with it, but unfortunately it don’t go that way”, she said.
