The beautiful international fashion model you see above, Favour Lucky, is now the title holder for African Fashion Awards “New Face Of The Year”, and yes she is still 16 years old signed to Isis Models, Nigeria.
Just a couple of years ago, the Nigerian beautiful was shedding tears after beating numerous of long legged girls at Nigeria’s Next Super Model contest and we were proud to acknowledge her as one of Africa’s best models. Read here.
Ever since, she has worked with some of Nigeria’s best designers, participated in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Joburg, New York Fashion Week, 100 Black Week of America fashion show produced by Dwight Eubanks of Atlanta housewives in Atlanta Georgia and the Ethical Fashion Show, and all this before she has turned 17.
The road for Favour has not been easy, these words might puzzle some as she is doing quite well. However, I state this because Africa has not yet gotten grips with us creating our own international models. Had Favour accomplished what she has done in Europe or America, working with their major brands, we would all be waving banners with her name on it branded as an international supermodel, when the truth is she is even more stunning, already international, doing just as much work, and just as good as most of the current top black models in the outside Africa, all at the age of 16, need I say it again?
Ghana will soon be blessed with the opportunity to see this supermodel walk the runway of Glitz Africa Fashion Week 2014. And if so, we will bring her to you in 3d.
