December: What's Up?

Next Top Model™ Comes To West Africa

First there was America's Next Top Model, Tyra Banks’ brainchild, a reality show in which a number of women compete for the title - America's Next Top Model. Soon after, a myriad of other versions followed including Afghanistan's Next Top Model, China's Next Top Model, Britain's Next Top Model, Australia's Next Top Model and Scandinavia's Next Top Model.

The first African Franchise was in Ghana - GNTM and Nigeria followed shortly with spin-off, Nigeria's Next Top Model which aired on HiTV with Olabimitan Adeyinka.

Cycle after cycle, with the Next Top Model brand getting stronger and stronger and more patents being bought, Tope Esan, professional and president of the Nigerian Entertainment Awards (NEA) - was busy lobbying for the third African Franchise of NTM - West Africa's Next Top Model. He has purchased the rights and hosting the show will be Supermodel and Entrepreneur, Oluchi Onewagba-Orlandi.

The show will start airing in January 2009 and will follow the same format as the original American’s Next Top Model. The format will be produced every season by region on the African continent with the initial start up being in West Africa.

Scouting for contestsants will soon commence in the following countries - Cote D'ivoire, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Liberia & Nigeria. Like many other revolutions, the era of African Supermodels has evolved. Stay tuned….
