After keeping her followers in dark for over a year, her creator Cameron-James Wilson who is a photographer and digital artist based in London revealed that "Basically Shudu is my creation, she’s my art piece that I am working on at the moment."

Talking to Harper's Bazaar, Wilson said, "She is not a real model, unfortunately, but she represents a lot of the real models of today. There’s a big kind of movement with dark skin models, so she represents them and is inspired by them."

The self-taught artist aims at spreading the message of empowerment and inclusivity through his unique creation which is a product of CGI, 3D computer generated graphics used for creating special effects in films and television.

Dismissing all claims over virtual models taking over the world of fashion, Cameron said, "I don’t see her or virtual people taking over the real world," adding, "The work that’s involved is extremely intense. The only reason I can make Shudu what she is because I have the knowledge of photography, hair, makeup."

Many internet users, however, were enraged over the fact that a white man created her. "A white photographer figured out a way to profit off of black women without ever having to pay one. Now pls, tell me how our economic system is in no way built on and quite frankly reliant on racism and misogyny," wrote a user.

Another one opined, "As much as I appreciate art I detest the fact that the minute dark skin is finally glamourized by the mainstream media a white man finds a way to commercialise & capitalize off it."

Wilson rubbished the rumours about him using Shudu for monetary gains. "It’s more of an expression, and when I’ve had companies approach me if what they want doesn’t reflect in what I see for her then it’s a no go. You know it doesn’t matter about the money or things like that," he told HIGHSNOBIETY.
