The Rhythm City star is tired of hearing "you're pretty for a dark skin girl". Samkelo took to social media to correct people who don't seem to understand that beauty isn't skin deep.

"Stop saying this thing! Stop thinking it! It's not a real thing. Liberate yourself and see that you are still enslaved if you think like this. If you still separate black people by their shade of black," she wrote on an Instagram post.

She further explained in her post that this is Africa, "the factory of black people" and that she isn't beautiful inspiteof her skin, but rather because of it. "I am not beautiful in spite of my skin, I'm beautiful because of it!" Samkelo wrote.
