BLACKSWAN's Sriya recently came under scrutiny following her appearance on 'The Show' on May 30 for her choice of hairstyle.
Sriya, a member of the multicultural group BLACKSWAN, was seen sporting Cornrows. This hairstyle is traditionally characterized by tight, upward braids lying close to the scalp, often styled in straight rows or elaborate designs. With a rich and storied history, Cornrows are more than just a hairstyle in many cultures; they signify a deep cultural heritage and are cherished for their neat aesthetics and their beneficial role in natural hair preservation.
However, this adoption of the hairstyle has raised concerns of cultural appropriation among fans who expressed their discontent and urged both Sriya and her agency to address the situation:
DR MUSIC issued an apology after the controversy.
Additionally, Sriya herself apologized.
