Paul Orhii, Nigeria’s Director General of The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has  threatened to arrest Los Angeles based Cameroonian artist DENCIA over her product Whitenicious.  The product is allegedly a bleaching cream for women and men interested in skin lightening.  Below is a statement by her representatives to TheNetng.net taking on NAFDAC.

Whitenicious by Dencia 3

“Nigeria ‘Whitenicious is not made in Nigeria and has no connections with Nigeria. Doesn’t Nigeria have more problems than worry about Dencia? Arrest Dencia lol how do you arrest a US citizen? Smh African leaders need to focus on Africa and stop joining the bandwagon for fame’, a rep for the singer told NET via e-mail.‎

As for the accusations on selling a product that causes cancer, Dencia’s rep says the agency is committing an act of defamation against the singer’s brand. ‘Whitenicious has been in the market for under 7 months and all these vicious lies and attack someone will pay for it and maybe it will be NAFDAC incase they didn’t get a simple law class you don’t make such comments about anyone and their business especially because no one has had any cancer like they claim. This is defamation’.

They need to study more and talk less. Nigeria has more issues than Whitenicious, Nigeria has worst pollution that Whitenicious, maybe he can put his energy into fixing roads and giving the masses clean water and lights to keep them healthy since he is worried about a cosmetic that isn’t a drug. Where is Dencia selling the products in Nigeria? Does she have a store there? Why are people so pompous? He (Orhii) should get a life or maybe get laid by his wife or side chicks. Dencia doesn’t care and wouldn’t even give it any attention because it is that irrelevant . . .” – The Netng.net has the full story.
