Dencia attacks Toke Makinwa and Mecran Cosmetics over theft

07 March 2016, 17:09

Lagos - Whitenicious boss, and musician  Dencia has  called out Toke Makinwa who is the brand ambassador for a cosmetics company called, Mecran Cosmetics, over stolen photos of customer success stories.

Dencia went as far as threatening to sue Mecran Cosmetics over the issue after a fan drew her attention to a photo shared by her competitor Macran cosmetics, showing a success story from the use of the Whitenicious product which she had shared weeks earlier.

Although Mecran Cosmetics had since apologized and even said the staff responsible for the theft has since resigned.

Dencia has said she is not accepting the apology.

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, btw Mercran isn't made in the USA as they claim,the FDA doesn't allow products to say "whitening lotion" you can't label products whitening because you can't whiten.Thanks for the tip @rarohlee .Management. #Whitenicious #PSA #fakecosmetics #Fakeimages #stolenimages #yourinstagramaliar #toke #nigeria #skincare
