Rising social media influencer VeryDarkBlackMan has been hailed by netizens for ‘doing the Lord’s work’ on a supposed mission to bring accountability to the Nigerian online skincare dealers.

Real name Martins Black Vincent, VeryDarkBlackMan or VeryBlackMan as he’s popularly known as, has garnered a significant following on TikTok(190k), Instagram (204k).

According to him, he aims not to dismantle businesses but to hold accountable those selling counterfeit skincare products. 

He has aggressively pursued these fraudulent vendors, using TikTok to vividly showcase the destruction of their fake products in real-time.

In July this year, the VeryDarkBlackMan reported Jenny’s Glow sinck care to The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control after one Amaka Duru, complained of negative reactions to Jenny’s Glow products.

In response the owner of Jenny’s Glow Igbinoba Jennifer arrested the lady who called her out (Amara Duru). This action by Jenny’s Glow stirred reactions from Netizens on social media and interestingly piqued the interest of the VeryDarkBlackMan.

He (VeryDarkBlackMan) also called out controversy surrounding actress Nkechi Blessing’s influencing a skincare line. 

He expressed concern about her products lacking NAFDAC clearance and advised on potential consequences for her career and American visa status.

The impact of his campaign has led to the shutdown of Jenny Glow Abuja and Lagos offices, and he has also called out celebrities who promoted these unverified products. 

Recently, he targeted Okunriin, a prominent men’s skincare brand, for lacking NAFDAC registration on their products, asserting that they are not registered with NAFDAC.

In response, the brand claimed that their registration paperwork is in progress, taking responsibility for all their products. 

While many have praised VeryDarkBlackMan for exposing these brands, others express concerns for his safety.
