British drag performer, Sminty Drop has called out Instagram influencer and Lagos socialite, Papaya Ex for creative theft.
The drag queen took to their Twitter account to raise an alarm because Papaya and her team recreated a look they created without giving any credit.
“1.2 million followers, 208k likes, a whole team behind her and not a single person thought to credit me or my creative team at all.. like girl be so fr..”
“the stylist/creative director has now tagged me in their reel after numerous comments, because the creator has their comments limited, which is great.. but the fact this has been up for a while now and if nobody had commented I probably would never have got any credit is wild lol” they added in a follow up tweet.
