Block buster US Based Actor Tyrese is one known for expressing himself. His recent meltdown about his daughters Before Court Battle, crying ‘Don’t Take My Baby!!’ became a viral meme. A moment he took to express himself before his legal battle to see his daughter, and he recorded the emotional breakdown right before heading to court.
This was then followed by his rants against the popular actor Dwayne Johnson, a long confusing feud that we just aren’t ready to tap into. The bottom line is Tyrese doesn’t hold back on his thoughts or what he wishes to inform the public about, and one of his recent posts opened up much public discussion.
Tyrese On Colorism
The Fast & Furious actor and main male figure from the movie Black & Blue took to his instagram to post a video with him posing in the camera and a caption stating “I Used To Be So Ashamed Of My Dark Skin When I Was Younger”.
A startling experience a lot of young dark people go through, literally throughout the world, even in Africa. The notion that dark-skinned isn’t beautiful is a fallacy that was introduced worldwide with the inception of world slavery, exploitation, and mental degradation.
A New Age For Dark Skinned
Over the years these traditions have been broken with the realization and reducing dependence of mainstream media and beauty platforms like Vogue magazine and more that did nothing but push white skin as the primary identity for beauty.
With the rise of social media and a clearer understanding of melanin, dark skin is even a growing trend, and now we see the bleaching epidemic decline and more black and even nonblack folks begin to darken their skin.
This may have inspired how Tyrese closed his comment with “I Used To Be So Ashamed Of My Dark Skin When I Was Younger….Now I am Clear This is King & Queen’s skin”. See the post below.
At FashionGHANA we don’t believe and skin is better than any skin, however, we do believe with a voice we all have a role to counterbalance the negative propaganda about Africans, dark-skinned, or black people for that matter. And if that is what Tyrese is working towards, more power to the brother.

UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
