Whitenicious boss, Dencia, has called out Toke Makinwa who is the brand ambassador for cosmetics company called, Mecran Cosmetics, over stolen photos of success stories.
After a fan called Dencia’s attention to a photo shared by @Macrancosmetics showing a success story from the use of the Whitenicious product which she had shared weeks earlier, she took to instagram to issue a disclaimer.
Dencia shared a screenshot photo of the mention concerning the product, commenting:
“It has come to our notice that @tokemakinwa’s company known as@mecrancosmetics is stealing images of Whitenicious success stories and results to post on their Instagram account and also send these images to their customers via text, what’s app and other SM platforms.This is a PSA, please refrain from using any material and falsifying and erasing our water mark, we aren’t connected to any of these fake brands and we will be suing you and your company if you keep stealing our images and lying about it being yours,we own the rights to all our images as this are from Whitenicious customers.If your products don’t work please don’t lie to customers just find a way to make better products.I understand your skin was lightened before you started selling these meaning you have never used it to lighten your skin so you need to steal images just don’t steal them from Whitenicious. Thanks for the tip @rarohlee.Management.”
The photo collage showing a hand in 3 phases of whitening had actually been shared by the company’s official handle and not Toke herself.
Toke who only nabbed the endorsement deal for Mecran Cosmetics 3 days earlier, is yet to respond to these allegations.
The media celebrity had made the endorsement known via her Instagram page, commenting:
“What an exciting way to start the month??? Guess who is the face of the latest cosmetic line in town?? I am the new face of @mecrancosmetics!”
