The first season of Queen Sono is officially live on Netflix and South Africans are already drinking up the show, posting reviews and reactions…
Beyonce and her daughter Blue Ivy’s “Brown Skin Girl”, straight off The Lion King: The Gift album alongside her single “Spirit”, sparked a new #BrownSkinGirlChallenge on Twitter since the song’s debut last Friday.
The song, which promotes self-love and embracing one’s dark skin, has inspired woman all over the world to proudly, and confidently, show off their brown skin.

My momma gave me light golden brown skin & kinky, coily hair. I’ve never been ashamed of it or embarrassed by my wide nose, full lips because she also gave me something even more important:
Confidence & self love.

The challenge is a rather refreshing break from the hate so often plaguing social media.
