I have always wondered how a very dark skinned person will look like since we have gone wild in bleaching our dark skin but the melanin gorgeousness of Khoudia Diop has left me in awe of her rare dark skin.

You can tell from her glowing pictures on instagram that she is one proud and confident dark skinned human who inspires women who refuse to appreciate their skin colour to see the beauty in it.


Some people believe that black is beauty while fair colour only attracts. Could you say that to this young Senegalese, Khoudia Diop who happens to be a model with an extremely dark skin that can be likened to that of Charcoal?

Diop has received a lot of attention including write-ups in Bossip and African Celebs because of her stunning features and outstanding dark skin.

She celebrates her amazing skin as she named herself “Melanin Goddess”














Melanin is a pigment that gives human skin, hair, and eyes their color. Dark-skinned people have more melanin in their skin than light-skinned people have. It is generated by cells called melanocytes.
