We first wrote about Nuul Kukk exactly 1 year and 1 week ago. Within the past few months society has become more vocal against skin whitening and bleaching incidences as seen in stories.
We have had viral stories in the press, such as the backlash Akon and Wiz Kid received for rejecting dark-skinned girls from their video shoot in Ghana. Scrutiny of the singer Dencia ruining her face with bleach to the extent only image retouching could help her, Yvonne Nelson proving to the public that she doesn’t bleach and is just as dark as she was in her younger years, and a few other stories.
Well, if at any stage you have ever complained about the situation, here is your chance to turn your words into action. A campaign called Nuul Kukk is an anti-skin whitening campaign slash black beauty campaign. It started in Senegal Africa and has expanded in its short time of existence to various countries in Africa.

You can read about them in our previous articles and find more links to their work here.
Anyways, to update you on Nuul Kukk, the beautiful campaign is now faced by the beautiful Aminita Faye, whom we profiled sometime last year. It seems things are really picking up for most of the African models that have been profiled on FashionGHANA.com. Look forward to seeing her faces across the whole of Senegal. Well done to her and well done to Nuul Kukk or being a part of the solution. See Aminata’s profile here https://www.fashionghana.com/aminata-faye/
