Nigerian fast rising model Mayowa Nicholas appears to be current Nigeria’s biggest fashion export, as she continues to prove exactly why that is. Despite how hard it is to make it as a black model globally, Mayowa keeps overcoming obstacles and soaring.
After getting discovered four years ago, winning the Elite Model Look, she has now landed her first-ever Vogue cover — which is a big deal for anyone in fashion, let alone a 20-year-old model!
Her poise, pillowy lips and perfect physique have charmed a lot of casting directors, fashion designers and fashion enthusiasts. Even though Mayowa grew up in Lagos, the stars aligned such that her talent would make her a citizen of the world, and fall into the hands of international fashion powerhouses such as Miu Miu, Calvin Klein, H&M and many more.
Mayowa graces the cover of Vogue Germany’s July edition, wearing a red Christopher Kane dress, looking like the baddest bitch in the whole world. We will continue to follow her rise in the ranks. Hopefully, we’ll be able to call her a supermodel real soon.
