Meet Sudanese model Nyakim Gatwech who was bullied for her dark skin growing up, but now she’s become an international sensation thanks to her stunning look and teachings about self-love.

The 24-year-old first made headlines back in March after she revealed an Uber driver offered her $10,000 to bleach her skin, insinuating that her complexion was something to be ashamed of. While most would be enraged by this, Gatwech simply laughed it off.

“Why on earth would I ever bleach this beautiful melanin God [blessed] me with,” she shared on Instagram. “You won’t believe the kind of questions I get and the kind of looks I get for having this skin.”

In a post, she shared on Instagram, she said: “We’ve come a long way but we still have a long way to go. My hope is that this post can remind you everyday of why you should be proud of your melanin. Why you should be proud of your heritage regardless of how light or dark your skin is. Stop comparing your skin [to] anyone. Change can only happen once you can truthfully look in the mirror and love that Deep Chocolate, Cinnamon, Mocha, or Caramel complexion.”

Polish author Olga Tokarczuk and Austria’s Peter Handke have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, with Kenya’s Ngugi wa Thiong’o overlooked.

Two winners were named – one for 2019 and one for 2018 – because the prize was not awarded last year.

The Swedish Academy, which oversees the prestigious award, suspended it in 2018 after a sexual assault scandal.

Tokarczuk, who also won the Man Booker International Prize last year, was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize, with this year’s Nobel going to Handke.

Ngugi wa Thiong’o had been considered a strong candidate for the prize, but he failed

In just a few hours, we’ll be hearing Kevin Gates’ latest musical offering in its entirety. For months, we’ve been hearing about his I’m Him project and we’re about to find out exactly why Gates is that dude.

After his release from prison early last year, the Baton Rouge veteran released his Chained To The City EP before coming through with Luca Brasi 3. It’s officially album time and his fans couldn’t be any more excited. Kicking off the campaign, the Bread Winner is starting us off with the introductory song on I’m Him, dropping a video for “RBS Intro.”

The video for “RBS Intro” was filmed during Gates’ trip to Amsterdam and the track itself is hard-hitting like most of his other hits. This will be the first cut from the new album.

Kevin Gates has described this journey as a reintroduction to himself, showing off all sides of his mind and truly remaining an open book. He said: “All of those negative connotations the world puts out…I’m him. All of those positive connotations the world puts out…I’m him as well. This is the new Kevin versus the old Kevin. It’s a celebration. It’s a rebirth. It’s redemption. I’m overcoming who I used to be in order to be greater.”

Stay tuned for the new album tonight!

Quotable Lyrics:

Hold it down when I’m on lock
Calling shots from the box
Diamond teeth full of rocks
I’m a real big speaker
