A 34-year-old white woman who is a glamour model claims she is now a black woman after undergoing multiple procedures and hormone injections to darken her skin. The woman named Martina Big calls herself the Swahili name Malaika Kubwa which means Big Angel, and her husband told reporters now that she is a black woman, she wants to learn more about the culture and the history of her African people.
Martina and her husband, Michael Eurwin, routinely inject themselves with the synthetic hormone Melanotan to keep their dark skin appearance. Still, despite the change, Martina and her husband want to have black children. However, when reporters asked the couple how that would be possible since she and her husband were both born white, Martina simply replied, “ My doctor has told me it is possible as I have changed myself internally."
Naturally, Martina’s claims shocked people, but when asked what she thought about Africans who might be offended by her actions, she doubled down and said,

While Martina’s actions and claims are shocking, transracialism is rising. People are talking about the issue thanks to Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP chapter president and a professor of African American Studies at Howard University. Miss Dolezal shocked the world and all those who knew her when it became evident that she was, all along, a white woman who passed herself off as a black woman.
As Martina and Rachel Dolezal struggle to come to terms with their identities, it’s interesting that transracial identity is making headlines when several African countries, including Ghana and Rwanda, ban skin-bleaching products used by African women who want to have a fair skin complexion. The ban comes after it emerged that skin-lightening products contain dangerous and harmful products that can cause serious health problems, including kidney failure. 
Yet, despite the warnings, skin bleaching is very popular in countries like Nigeria, where the world health Organisation reports up to 77% (the highest percentage in the world) of Nigerian women use skin-lightening products.
Nevertheless, as bewildering as Martina’s story is, Martina knows the challenges and the criticisms she faces as a black woman. Most notably, Martina has a problem with Americans who judge her, unlike her new African friends, who understand what she is trying to accomplish. Martina said about her detractors,

For years, western women looking for love have been flocking to The Gambia, a small West African country that is poor and whose main economy is dependent on agriculture and tourism. However, The Gambia has warned mature western women who want to form relationships or settle down with young Gambian men. Over the years, these older women and the unemployed destitute youth of The Gambia had a symbiotic relationship that involved money for the opportunity of a relationship. The women sponsored the young men and brought them back to their home countries when they legally got married or sent them money. The Government of The Gambia is now putting a stop to these symbiotic relationships to bolster the country’s image. Instead, The Gambia said they are after quality tourists, not desperate older people who want to exploit their young people. Abubakarr Camara, the director of The Gambia Tourism Board, didn’t mince his words when he told reporters,
