Read excerpts from her feature below.

On her projects: I’ve been chasing my dreams and living life.I’m working hard and having lots of fun doing it. I’m currently on the road promoting my new single, “African energy” . This week alone, I just left Las Vegas, where I attended the billboard awards for Los Angeles to kiss my beautiful dogs and now headed to Lagos to premier the video for my new single, “African energy” and then Europe for more promotion.

On her inspirations: I’m a goal driven person who is relentless in pursuing my dreams. I’m inspired by not just one person. I draw inspiration from everything and everyone around me. I’m inspired by powerful & successful women like Folurunsho Alakija, historical greats like the Queen of Matamba, Madam CJ Walker( okay let me not get too deep lol) and of course my grandmother who raised me to be fearless. I’m also inspired by haters, I’ve observed that the more focused you are and the higher you climb the ladder to success in life, the less you can hear their rants, rumors and lies from below.

On her passion for fashion: Fashion is something i’m extremely passionate about. I truly enjoy colors, sunglasses, shoes, visors, accesories, anything fashion. I believe I’ve always had style since i was a little girl. I believe fashion is an expression of personal or collective style. it can speak for a person, culture or group of people. There is hip hop inspired fashion,vintage fashion, chic styled fashion, edgy harijuku style & pop fashion, all types of fashion. The most important thing is having your own style and expressing yourself however you chose to. I’ve attended fashion events all over the world from Europe to Tokyo and of course the United States. I’m always networking and studying the game like Kanye West. You can bet on the fact that I will be respected and known in the fashion industry shortly.

On being controversial in the music industry: What industry? i’m not part of any industry because I am in any every industry . Music is how I express myself,music has helped me grow,I don’t relate to most artists because we are different people with different dreams & visions,I have a vision,driven by a vision of a different version.. I don’t have the same challenges they have. Im in my own lane,  They can’t make their own decisions and rely on music to survive. In my situation, I’m focused on building a beauty brand,fashion & much more that will take care of me and my future kids and their kids. Any controversy is mostly because people choose to focus on my personal choices. I just live my life and people talk about it. I’m motivated by the fact that I’m not yet where God wants me to be.. I found out Steve Forbes the CEO follows me on twitter and i’m very excited. That means i must be doing something right.

    I see Dencia is channelling Nicki Minaj these days

    • Dencia Fan

      May 21, 2015 at 4:57 pm

      LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS WOMAN.

      The woman is artistic as well as hardworking and driven, these pictures are a reflection of her personal style, she does not go with the crowd and does not need anyone’s affirmations to reassure or boost her confidence.

      It is obvious that these images were not shot by the usual “House of Maliq” team, she is setting a standard I implore other magazines to step up to.

      Dencia is innovative and unyielding in her approach to business and generally in her pursuit of success.. Alot of these “Nigerian Celebrities” should look and learn how to build a brand that actually makes money.

      Well done Dencia, single black females around the world are rooting for you.

      Whether you like her or not, the babe dey try ABEG

    This girl has extremely low self esteem and is extremely delusional. I really feel sorry for her. I wonder what happened to make her this way. This is the first person I can actually say I don’t want to read about or see anymore because everything about her gives me a headache.

      Just like she said in one of the excerpt. She does not give a damn to haters. #ycbfasc#

      Why must you hate? What have you achieved with your own life? Shut up and BOW before The Queen!

    • Ewa

      May 21, 2015 at 10:54 am

      Which stupid queen,? If this is your queen, it shows how much low self esteem you have. What have YOU achieved in your own life? Keep bowing there sogbo?

      Can we please stop hating… it is the 21st century! This girl is going places and dinning with people most of us only dream off. Yes she is making her money from sources most people don’t support, but please commend her for her hard work, determination and self driven attitude. Most of us need these in our lives… Time is moving fast and things are changing… join the revolution and stop hating!

      Only people as delusional as Dencia is would believe I’m hating on her. It’s more like she annoys me and her attitude puts me off. Releasing a horrible single and peddling bleaching cream requires only so much hardwork, drive and determination. And no matter how loud her rabid dogs scream bow to the queen, ain’t nobody bowing down to that plus I only bow down to the Most High God.

      You will keep shut and bow to Dencia, The Queen who has snatched your edges and left you bald, bitter and bothered.

      You ate not hating on her, you are jelous of her

    • Eve

      That sounds more like jelousy

    She looks like a reptile in the green outfit. Dencia can still be unique in her own way without dressing this way.

    May 21, 2015 at 9:26 am

    I really don’t understand this girl, and what she does. Neither will I pretend to understand her fashion style or what she’s trying to prove. I have mixed feelings, a side of me is convinced she’s suffering from some type of major inner problems and the other side gives her credit for hustling.

    • Eve

      May 21, 2015 at 7:21 pm

      How does her style put food on your table?

    Wow…. Are these photos real? I can’t believe my eyes! QUEEN, why must you slay me so? Snatching my wig so effortlessly. My edges are gone. My scalp is tender. Continue to pave the way, Queen!

    she hardly/never shows her legs….i wonder why…..just curious….

    • Pretty girl

      May 21, 2015 at 7:42 pm

      The bleaching cream didn’t work on her legs so she has to cover them up.

  11. skelly

    May 21, 2015 at 10:16 am

    hmmn..she must cover that leg by fire by force…lmao

    A good fashion must answer to these three questions: 1. Does it fit? 2. Does the colour complement me? 3. Is the feedback positive? i.e. Fitness, Colour and Style.

    LMAOO!! Please who calls her Queen Dencia and why?

  15. PRIME PERSONA

    May 21, 2015 at 10:50 am

    In Dencia’s dictionary, I’m uncertain if there’s any such word as moderate, normal or simple or modest. She thrives on ambiguous , controversial and complex and to be honest its working for her. I’m really not a fan but i cant hate on her hustle meeehn

    The fact that she covers up so consistently gives me huge reservations on the condition of her skin. Something MUST be wrong…really wrong.

    • Eve

      May 21, 2015 at 7:23 pm

      You are sick as hell, if she goes naked, y’all will hv something new to talk about. Did you not see her skin on the whitenicious cover?

  19. liz

    May 21, 2015 at 12:03 pm

    Hello to every one bowing to the queen and to others saying the plain truth some people call critism.lol
    I respect her hustle. But am drawn to somethings in this pictures;
    -one of her pic like someone said photoshop gone wrong she became an handicap to look perfect and avoid revealing her knuckles I think
    -and one of the covers says ‘How yo love the skin you are In’.
    chai!africans…..Apparently I can’t just imagine someone that changed her skin colour from a beautiful choclate or whatever to a walking corpse coloyr giving such advice . Ma’am before writing on that you didn’t love the skin you were in before or even tried loving to so dont give us Bull$#!+ here.

    Stop popularizing unimportant people. Specifically those who are no good for our community. Let her stay whereever she is.

    • Eve

      May 21, 2015 at 7:26 pm

      How important are u?

  24. Hanee

    May 21, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    i love this lady courage, determination and her uniqueness. It doesn’t matter how she’s doing it but she’s definitely doing her thang. It’s not easy so stop hating on her

  25. Who Cares

    May 21, 2015 at 5:41 pm

    Isnt it amazing how no matter how crazy someone is there will be ppl out there crazy enough to still call them queens and kings. U cant blame them coz they dont know this ppl. Now i love her hussle, no doubt. She has hussled to be where she is now. From sleeping with married men back in MD to moving to CA and sleeping with more men. Now the problem i have with her is her constant lies. First she said she was Nigerian. Big fat lie. 100% cameroonian. Then she said she was born light skinned, another fat lie. When caught, she accepts she bleached and ppl shld leave her alone. Well y did u lie in the first place! She claimed she never denied the fact that she bleached! Check out her first interview after Whitenicous came out. U claim to be doing charity all over the place and expect orphan kids to look up to u but still every single day u embarrass urself on social media and cant take a damn day to just humble urself. Now our days, google keeps everything so ur kids will see it some day. Thats my problem with her! Accept everything and just live ur life. No matter how much u deny it, some of us have known u since from ur days from Progressive back in Cameroon. But i wonna ask her one question, will she bleach her kids as well? Or marry a white man like her sister and claim we were born mixed?

    Y’all should keep bowing to “Queens” that are nothing oh, do you know if she cries herself to sleep at night? Bow to God who keeps your soul.
