Martina Big – aka the former white woman who now identifies as black – has revealed that she is planning a permanent move to Africa in order to ‘be with her people’.
The thirty-year-old former glamour model rose to prominence after appearing on This Morning to discuss her transition into a black woman:
Big and her husband Michael Eurwen, 31, have been using tanning injections called Melanotan which are used to darken the skin’s pigmentation. The model is no stranger to cosmetically altering her looks – her infamous size 30S breasts are the product of several plastic surgery procedures.
Now Big, who identifies as a black woman, has revealed that she is currently looking for a home in Kenya where she can raise a family.
The former model is already familiar with the continent, having been baptised in Kenya and changing her name to Malaika Kubwa (which apparently means Big Angel in Swahili). Malaika told The Sun: “I not only look like an African woman, I also feel that I’m now an African woman. I spent time in Kenya last year and I felt so at home. Now I have a lot of invitations from all over Africa.”
It seems as though Big is intent on raising her future children in Africa: “I want to learn more about the black culture first, so that I can educate my future children in black (teach the black culture).”
A shocked Holly replied: “I’m trying to think, genetically, how that is possible.
“If you give birth to a white child will you somehow think it’s not connected to you?”
Big then responded: “No. It’s a mix of Michael and me. I’m pretty sure it will be black or milk chocolate or a little bit light, it doesn’t matter.”
