US Model Goes to Nigeria to Launch Skin Bleaching Cream, Gets Into Fight-Report from Sputnik News

Blac Chyna, who rose from stripping in a Miami club to stardom and a marriage into the Kardashian clan, made headlines when she allegedly got in a fight during her Nigerian promotion trip for a skin whitening cream.  The video of a tense encounter, reportedly filmed in the country’s capital Abuja, emerged on Instagram. The man who posted it insisted that it was Chyna, getting into a fight.

Before flying to Africa, the woman, who is pursuing a career in modelling and the  beauty business now, faced criticism for promoting the controversial product, which comes in jars decorated in Swarovski crystals that sell for $250 each.
