JESY Nelson has insisted she is proud of herself and urged others to follow their dreams after she was accused of blackfishing.
The 29-year-old shared a picture of herself as a child as she offered words of encouragement to both herself and her fans following a difficult few weeks.

She wrote: “Little Jesy would be really proud of you. If there’s anyone out there with a dream, don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve it!”
The star included other images in her post – showing her alongside P Diddy and also the chart position for her track Boyz.
Jesy continued: “You can do whatever you set your mind to in life, nothing is ever too big to dream if you work hard enough for it. Keep believing in YOU no matter what is put in your way, because there’s only one you in this world and that is your power.
“Your thoughts are POWERFUL so keep them positive, keep manifesting, you are the creator of your reality. You get to decide how life goes for you.”
Things turned sour between Jesy and the Little Mix girls last week when Jesy released her debut single Boyz, featuring Nicki Minaj.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 30, is believed to have accused her of “blackfishing” — when a white person uses black culture to further their career or online presence.
In messages thought to have been sent from Leigh-Anne’s account to influencer No Hun and shared to his 341,000 followers via a live stream, the star wrote: “She blocked us. Cut us off. Horrible person.”
After No Hun asked his fans if he should make up a dance routine to Boyz, Leigh-Anne replied: “No. Do a video about her being a blackfish instead.”
The situation escalated further when Jesy went live with Nicki Minaj to address the blackfishing claims.
While Jesy did not address the Leigh-Anne situation directly, she laughed as Nicki ranted and savaged her former bandmate, and later thanked her for defending her.
She also insisted that she didn’t mean to offend anybody – and her tan and curls are completely natural.
