Nigeria Model Stories 

When it comes to the global sphere of fashion and modelling, Africa is fairly in it’s own space which at times leaves us detached from the wider world of who is who, if the who is not a celebrity.

A little disappointed we are not seeing Mayowa Nicholas on any of these runways, we hope she’s not too big for Nigeria. Anyways with no further adieu we bring you other international models, both from Nigeria and outside Nigeria that hit the Arise runway to….

On this International Women’s day, allow me to pause and give myself a good hug. 💁🏾‍♀️ I was ruthlessly ambitious. Crazy risk taker. Gentle Giant. ‘High Lander’ When Africa wasn’t a cool “thing” I stood for it and still fighting for her in my little GREAT way. My only issue, I am always way ahead of my time. Didn’t know been ahead, shakes tables and brings about Enemies…!!!! But if you understand I was born and proudly raised in Surulere, you will know I was built in the system. My roots are solid. ✊🏾 #HIWD2019 FBF ❤️ to @forbeswomanafrica for the acknowledgement, I'm humbled…! @maiatafo we did it. Red suit never look so good.😉 I appreciate! 📷 by @kelechiamadiobi Thank You.🙌 @debolainc 💇 thank U. PR @rtmediacomms My loyalty and faith in fashion africa remains unwavering.
