This is ridiculous. They still can look beautiful without the false borrowed hairs. Inferiority complex costing us millions of UDS in false hair imports!

The one to pop the champagne, called Tadala is a classic example of vanity. So she wants to look like a white person in that wig. The inferiority complex of black women in the name of being trendy.
