“1…2…3…4 caucasians I see… oh where on earth could the Africans be?” a YouTube commenter asked after seeing the video advert tagged Komole by fashion designer, Deola Sagoe.

While some explained that the presence of the white models was to enable her sell her brand in the international market, some said that the video did not appreciate Nigerian women.
