Popular Nigerian dancer, Poco Lee, has recently become a topic of discussion on social media platforms due to the apparent change in his skin tone. A new video of the dancer, whose real name is Iwe Pascal Odinaka, has gone viral, leading to widespread speculation about his complexion.
In the video, Poco Lee is seen dancing energetically to Burna Boy’s “City Boy” alongside a group of young men. While his dance moves are undoubtedly captivating, it was his noticeably brighter skin tone that drew the most attention. Dressed in an orange fitted top, black jeans, and a fez cap, Poco Lee’s complexion seemed unusually radiant, leading many to wonder if he had been altering his skin tone.

Social media users were quick to share their opinions on the matter. While some accused the dancer of bleaching his skin, others defended him, pointing out that he has always had a fair complexion. Comments ranged from concerns about the dancer’s health to jokes about his appearance. One user, Chief Obi, humorously commented that the dancer would “soon disappear,” while another, Skillz, suggested that Poco Lee might be using a particular skin product.
Despite the speculation, some fans came to Poco Lee’s defense. One user, _kachamma, commented, “Poco lee nah fair boy right from time nah. Y’all let the poor boy breathe.” Another, fvckerychichi, added, “Na filter. Poco is really a fair guy; he’s not bleaching. Any good cream he applies will boost out his body complexion.”
In addition to the debate about his skin tone, Poco Lee also faced criticism for his delayed response to the death of singer Mohbad. The dancer only commented on the issue after Bella Shmurda released an official statement. Poco Lee shared screenshots of Bella’s statement on Instagram, seemingly aligning himself with the singer’s views.
As the discussions continue, it remains to be seen whether Poco Lee will address the speculations directly. For now, fans and critics alike await his next move, both on the dance floor and off.
