However, there have been few concerns raised on Twitter about the pictures used for the cover.
Muhehi tweeted: “Someone decided to paint her pitch-black because her natural color is UnAfrican. Europeans.
@Joliciosness: “I don’t think she truly approved of this color after she dyed her skin, unappreciated black skin child.

Clearing things up, Phil tweeted: “Please do your own research before jumping on a bandwagon. Classique didn’t put Kelly in this makeup. These visuals are from her Empini promotional material and video. Thank you.”
