We’ve had both male and Female models feature in our campaigns before, we’ve never faced any outrage before. Look within yourselves people and sort out your inherent prejudices. Learn to love and embrace, and look beyond colour and race!

There is nothing that’s been forced or placed in the African Magic Lane shot- No people are props, they are real shop owners and the donkeys are their donkeys. Instead of asking them to vacate the photograph we just shot as it was, in harmony with the surroundings.

As for those finding the image with the donkeys offensive; donkeys are beloved in Lamu. They are taken care of and the only mode of transportation, rich/poor all travel is on donkeyback. In our country not only do we treat donkeys badly we also use it as a term to insult others

Our friends from Lamu eagerly follow and see this campaign unfold. Pls do not disrespect them by making insensitive comments and throwing terms about which actually make them feel objectified. I feel ashamed that they had to witness such sentiments over pictures they are part of.

The Elan campaign gives out a message of acceptance and racial harmony. We show an interracial couple discovering an island in Africa.The island itself has been ravaged by terrorism in recent years, and bringing the focus back on its beauty will prove to be beneficial for locals.

There is not a single indication of any of the above in a single image put forth by Elan. In fact had we chosen to eliminate Gabriel Ford our Kenyan Model from the campaign based upon his skin colour, that would be an example of discrimination and hence racism.

What is racism? According to the oxford dictionary: it is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

There has been no adoption by Elan of any African cultural or religious symbols. Our Kenyan Model Gabriel Ford is dressed as a cosmopolitan male, there is no depiction of any African religious or cultural persona by him or by the female model

What is cultural appropriation? According to the oxford dictionary or in its simplist form: The unacknowledged or inappropriate adoption of the customs, practices, ideas, etc. of one people or society by members of another and typically more dominant people or society.

Beauty has no skin tone. An interesting note from as she writes about a recent campaign.

So I asked about her brand's campaign & here's what she told me 👇🏽(I'd last spoken to her during about an outfit worn by Duchess Kate). On a personal note, interracial relationships are a NORM. We need to examine our misconceptions to evolve🖤
