Nairobi is set to take center stage in the modeling world as it prepares to host the much-anticipated Africa’s Next Super Model 2023.
Scheduled for October 28, 2023, at the iconic Radisson Blu Upper Hill, Nairobi, this event will be one of Africa’s biggest beauty pageants.
With big prizes of about 1 million Kenyan Shillings and bigger dreams, this prestigious event promises to be a spectacle like no other, bringing together the finest models and designers from all parts of the world. Remarkably, Africa’s Next Super Model is more than just a runway show; it is a celebration of African diversity and creativity.
Four Kenyans, namely, Nelly Atabo, Wilkister Chepkoech, Nancy Njoki, and Agnes Wakoyu, will have the opportunity to dazzle audiences with an electrifying fusion of fashion, culture, and talent.
The event highlights the diverse talent found throughout Africa by featuring models from all regions, including the Kakuma refugee camp and other East African camps.
Nigerian-born and Africa-focused Joan Okorodudu who is the CEO of Isis Models International, an agency that identifies, develops, and sustains the careers of beautiful black models, shared her excitement about this year’s competition.
She told journalists in Nairobi that over 31 agents have already registered for Africa’s Next Super Model 2023, with participants representing Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Burundi, and Uganda. Okorodudu said this year’s event promises to be a melting pot of cultures and a celebration of the continent’s modeling prowess.
Models will begin arriving on October 20 for what is anticipated to be a fiercely contested competition. With several models registered, the competition will be intense, and the top 20 models will have the opportunity to shine on the runway.
The inaugural edition of Africa’s Next Super Model took place in Kigali, Rwanda, in November 2022, setting the stage for this prestigious modeling competition’s continued success and growth.
Africa’s Next Super Model is a prestigious modeling competition that celebrates African culture, diversity, and talent. It provides a platform for models and designers from across the African continent to showcase their skills and creativity on an international stage.
Joan Okorodudu through her passion and remarkable brilliance in finding new talents has been instrumental in making Africa’s Next Super Model a global success with models featured in the top shows across the world.
“This event will bring together Models, designers, Model scouts, and agents from around the world. Last year in Rwanda, the competition had 15 agents and this year the event is expecting 30 agents from across the world”.
