Popular African Model, Nyakim Gatwech enters Guinness Record for being the darkest person in the world (photos)
Popular Sudanese Model, Nyakim Gatwech has been inked in the Guinness World Record for having the darkest skin on planet Earth.
The 27-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.
Once upon a time, Nyakim became popular on various news portals after detailing her 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.”
Gatwech is not only an advocate for diversity in the fashion industry but also a voice for Black rights around the world. She’s even been dubbed “Queen of Darkness,” a title she happily accepts. “Black is bold, black is beautiful, black is gold… Don’t let American standards damage your African soul.” Love the skin you live in, no matter what color or shade it may be!
With self-inspiration and confidence in her skin tone, Nyakim has set a world record and has become a global icon for many Africans.
She is “the queen of darkness”, so she wants to convey a message of acceptance and recognition of inner beauty.
