Prior to the release of the project, the trailer for Black Is King generated several reactions from social media users.
While many music lovers hailed Beyonce, a Nigerian model identified as Dimssoo on Twitter, has quite a different opinion on it.
In a lengthy Twitter thread, Dimssoo accused the singer of cultural appropriation and also stated that the Flawless singer is contributing to the problematic ideologies of how Africa is viewed.
Dimssoo said it is misrepresentations like these that make African Americans and other people ponder if Africa has WiFi. She also accused Beyonce of tapping into the wealth of the African culture for her art but never adding African countries to her tours.
Also, celebrity sisters and singers, Beyonce and Solange may be considered style icons of their time but there is no denying they got it from their mother, Tina Knowles.
Knowles, in a recent Instagram post, took fans all the way back to the past when she used to own a hair salon, with a single photo.
The photo which according to Knowles' post, was taken in her hair salon, shows a much younger Tina lounging on a couch, dressed in an animal print jumpsuit, rocking a pinup look.
