Say hello to this one-of-a-kind Lira Barbie doll! The South African singer may currently be having a tough time in the love department but as Queen Bee Beyonce said “your best revenge is your paper.” In Lira’s case her own mini me.
As part of Barbie’s 60th Anniversary Shero campaign which celebrates role models who inspire young girls, the singer has been chosen as Barbie’s first African role model.
How historic is that?
Excited Lira shared this on social media:
“I’m deeply honoured to be Barbie’s first African role model and am excited to align with brand that is on a mission to show girls more diverse role models. I have always been someone who endeavours the celebration of my skin tone and natural hair, and it is amazing to see this reflected in my doll which I hope will inspire girls across the African continent. This is an enormous gesture and affirmation that the world is celebrating Africa for who we are. “
