Sudanese Model, Nyakim Gatwech is the latest to enter the Guinness Book Of Records For Having The Darkest Skin Tone On Earth.
Gatwech is known for her naturally dark skin color and has been nicknamed the Queen of the Dark.
Gatwech has faced self-esteem issues and comments from people who promote bleaching to lighten skin color, but learned to embrace her beauty and pigmentation with love and support from her fans.
She has over 750,000 followers on Instagram.
The 24-year-old African model and fashion icon, who now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has no shame about her melanin, and she makes sure the world is aware. “My chocolate is elegant. So is what I represent… A nation of warriors,” she captioned one of her many Instagram photos, which routinely exceed 10 thousand likes each.
In another, she details an experience in which an Uber driver suggested she try ‘bleaching’ her skin – and her only response was laughter. “You won’t believe the kind of questions I get and the kind of looks I get for having this skin.”
