According to a photo shared by Fuse ODG, Nivea is taking down one of the billboards which bore the message at Kasoa, in Ghana.


Meanwhile the same campaign still hangs on the former Miss Nigerian Omowunmi Akinnifesi‘s Instagram wall which some have lambasted her with insults.

However, after the take down exercise, many Ghanaians again would want the cosmetic producers to also issue an official apology.
