For the past 11 months, German glamour model Martina Big has been dyeing her skin, wearing hair extensions and changing her eye colour to ‘transition’ into a black woman.
Now the 29-year-old - who was born white - is claiming that her body is starting to change on its own, and her hair has ‘naturally’ started to become dark and curly, in a way that resembles the natural hair of many people of African descent.
“I have great news!” she wrote on Facebook alongside a photo of herself at the hairdresser.
“On the photo you only see my natural hair! I have no extension on this photo! (sic)”
* Woman who dyed her skin is going to Africa to 'learn' to be black
* This woman has Europe’s ‘biggest boobs’
Martina said she was at the hairdresser to change her extensions, but after taking them out, “I noticed how much my hair structure of my own hair has changed”.
“I compared my own hair with the hair of the other Africans in the salon. They are identical to my (sic)”.
“That's the clear proof that I'm a real black woman now.”
Martina, who first garnered attention after inflating her breasts to S-cups, said she isn’t a white woman pretending to be black, but feels as though she is a black woman at heart.
After making a series of physical changes to her body, she now said she’s noticing “how my feelings changed”.
“Many of my changes are very slow, but continuous,” she said, “If my transformation continues to be so good, I will soon be identical to other black women.”
“You can not imagine it is a great feeling to become more and more a black woman.”
Martina was the target of huge online backlash after she revealed she was using tanning injections.
While she’s been slammed by race equality organisations, the model has pleaded with the public, saying she’s doing this for her and she doesn’t mean to offend anyone.
“I’m not a white woman, with black skin and African hair,” she wrote on Facebook last year.
“I’m a black woman with heart and soul. Getting more and more the body of a black woman is so a wonderful and liberating feeling for me. I don’t want to offend anyone!”
