Last night was something at the Eko Hotel and Suites as the 2015 Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria’s grand finale took place. 20 models- 10 female and 10 male- and they came out strutting the runway with so much confidence that we were completely blown away.
In this part of the world, we probably didn’t see a few of these things coming but, seeing that the 2014 male winner has done amazing things out of Nigeria with brands like Balmain, we guess that you just need to show the world, and not just Nigeria, that you are brave enough to show us what you got.
Anyway, that gist is something you should look out for when we bring you our experience of that show but out of the 20, 2 got selected- one from the male category and the the other from the female category. After coming out in designs by various African designers and even in swim wears, the moment of truth came with the top 5 in the male category and top5 in the female category.
Just after the amazing, mind blowing and enjoyable performance by our man crush, Banky W, the winners were announced and Damilola Okunola & Funmilayo Akinjuola were the lucky 2 announced as the 2015 Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria winners. I guess the little uproar last night paid off for Funmi after all.
It has been an amazing journey for all the contestants and we look forward to them doing great things in the modelling world.
Kudos to Elohor Aisien for living through this dream and bringing forth stars in the world of modelling.
Congrats to Dami and Funmi and we will be watching you closely *wink*
