What do you think about Tosin Silver’s criticism of Adesua Etomi’s Vogue Magazine cover? We agree with him, but before you have our head rolling, read to know why!
Award-winning actress, Adesua Etomi, recently graced the cover of Vogue Magazine alongside Scarlett Johansson and other top actresses from 12 countries.
The interview was meant to be light and fun, as demonstrated by the other actresses. But Adesua seemed rigid and not as excited as the others.
After blogger, Tosin Silverdam, pointed out all the things wrong with the magazine cover, many were quick to tag him a hater.
Truth is, his opinion was perhaps the same thing many were thinking but were probably too scared to voice out. Videos of Adesua’s Vogue cover shoot which have been circulating the Internet for the past few days are disappointing.
She seemed too serious with her answers and many of them were quite vague. She also looked odd and darker than her usual self, something many failed to point out because they were busy jumping on the bandwagon of those showering praises on the actress.
If Vogue had wanted a darker actress from Nollywood, they should have gone ahead to pick from the array of dark beauties rather than tampering with Adesua’s clear skin colour with dark makeup. It totally came out wrong. She looked out of place and nothing like a star.
Still, we can’t help but say congratulations are in order to this beautiful actress.
In his lengthy post, Tosin also addressed the fact that Adesua was the wrong choice from Nollywood for the cover, as she is oblivious to the history of this industry and might not understand some things.

Tosin has since apologized for his criticism.
