A former glamour model who is white, “identifies as black” and has recently shared her plans to move to Africa to be with “her people.”
Martina Big, 30, and her husband, Michael Eurwen, 31, use tanning injections called Melanotan — which ultimately darkens the skin.
Big has had quite the transition — with having multiple operations to give her 30S boobs along with her darkened skin.
Now, she says she is looking for a home in Kenya where she wants to raise her future family.
Big has had a baptism and changed her name to Malaika Kubwa — which translates to “Big Angel” in Swahali.
She recently shared with 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.”
In the past, Big has posted to Facebook regarding her want for children who she would like to raise in Africa. She wrote:
“I want to learn more about the black culture first, so that I can educate my future children in black (teach the black culture).”
She also shares how since she has taken injections, even her eye-color and has hair has changed.
“It’s a change that is inside as well as out. These changes are not superficial but deep inside me,” Big shares.
Earlier this year, Big was met with an overwhelming backlash when she appeared on This Morning and shared with hosts Holly Willoughby and John Barrowman how she has managed to “change race” thanks to injections and she expects her future children to be either black or mixed race — despite how both her and her husband were born white.
“My children will be black. We are not having plans, but I am discussing with my doctor to see if my body is okay, will I be able to breastfeed, what the baby will look like,” Big shared.
“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?”
“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.”
Big recently shared to her fans on her Facebook page about how she does not appreciate certain slang attached to her transformation, saying:
“Some people write in the picture comments that I’m ‘crispy’ and that I will get ‘crispy’ Barbies. I ask you not to do this anymore. As you know, my transformation has not only changed my appearance, but also my personality and feelings changed fundamentally. On the one hand, as a black woman, I have become more impulsive, on the other hand, but more sensitive as far as my black race is concerned. Now when someone tells me that I’m ‘crispy’ brown, I find that offensive, to me and to my black race. I therefore ask you not to do this anymore. Thanks!”
