One of the models from the proclaimed Dove racist advert, Lola Ogunyemi, has come to the defence of the beauty/Cosmetic company.

In a short clip of the advert on Facebook, Lola was seen transforming from her dark skin into different shades of light-skinned colours from other races.

The model, who transformed into different shades of light skins, has said that social media users who classed the ad ‘racist’ misinterpreted the whole concept.

She said what the creatives of the ad were trying to say is that the cosmetic product is suitable for people with different skin tones.

Meanwhile, some people still think the advert is racist since she appeared first before the other models.
