Martina Big has spent a lot of money to achieve her desired look. However, Big, a German-born Caucasian woman, does not identify as a member of the white race. That’s why she has undergone dangerous tanning injections to darken her skin color because she “identifies as black.” Now if this was not controversial enough, she now detailed her plans to make a move to the continent of Africa officially.
30-year-old Big and her 31-year-old husband Michael Eurwen both inject Melanotan into their bodies. This is a synthetic hormone that helps darken skin color. Because they both want to move to Kenya, they have been searching for a house near the Equator and hope to leave the continent of Europe for the continent of Africa as soon as possible.
Big is a glamor model. She has 30S breasts because she has undergone many operations. After a re-baptism ceremony, she renamed herself from Martina Big to Malaika Kubwa, which translates as “Big Angel” in Swahili.
The reason that Big wants to move to Africa is so she can be reunited with her “people” and start to raise her family with African traditions instead of European ones.
Many people consider Big’s lifestyle choices to be outrageous and controversial.
In an interview with Sun Online, she said: “I not only look like an African woman, but 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.”
Big has turned to Facebook as a way to further share her believes. She wanted her follower to know that she believes her children should be raised with African traditions rather than European ones.
“I want to learn more about the black culture first so that I can educate my future children in black (teach the black culture).”
During the last few years, Big has documented her transition from blonde to black. She claims that just three injections of Melanotan turned her skin from white to black.
While on This Morning, Big shocked viewers when she told the audience that she expected her children to be born black despite her and her husband’s genetic makeup.
On Facebook, she backed up her views, writing: “Doctors say that I am physically now a black woman and my future children will be black. And I believe the doctors!”
But on the show, presenter Holly Willoughby questioned whether this is possible.
“If that baby is not black, because I’m trying to understand how genetically this would be possible, will you still be close to them if you give birth to a white baby?”
Big responded with: “Of course – it will be a mix of me and Michael. But I’m pretty sure it will be black, but if it is milk chocolate or a little bit lighter, it doesn’t matter.”
Although born white, the couple, who married in October of last year in Hawaii, both identify as black.
Martina Big said, “I can clearly feel that I am black – but it’s hard to find the right words to describe it.”
