- Big decided to change her skin tone at whatever cost so she could transform into a African woman
- She started with breast implants but that did not give her the real feel of an African woman
- The former air hostess resolved to melanin injections which completely transformed her
- She completed the process by being baptised at a church in Nyeri
In a rare case, lady identified as Martina Big, a former air hostess embarked on a life transforming journey which attracted both positive and negative criticism across the globe.
The 29-year-old lady from Germany, went for a life-threatening melanin injection to completely change her complexion from white to black.
According to a report by The Standard, Big announced she was fed-up with being white and that she admired the dark African skin.
A determined Big started out with monstrosities for br*ast implants but that was not enough transformation for her.
Convinced a dark skin would give her the real feel of an African woman, she decided to change from blonde to the deepest shade of black.
Reports indicate she also installed a 50-tubed sun bed in her house, to accelerate her blackness, and believes her children will be born black.
To complete her transformation, Big went full Rachel Dolezal and even changed her name after being baptized in Kenya.
The former hostess was baptised in Nyeri in March, with about three bundles of kinky-curly weave and with the blessings of a new Kenyan family:
In a video shared on her webpage, a man dressed in pastoral attire is seen laying his hands on her head and declaring her a new creature. With the baptism, Big completed her transformation by adopting a new name Malaika Mkubwa.
"You are now a new creature in Jesus’ name”. says the pastor in the Video. The pastor was identified as Isaac Murage of Gichira Baptist Church.
