Here are the 2 girls that will be representing Nigeria in this year’s Face of Africa competition.
They both look fab (okay….one of the girls looks a lil’ bit manly but….)
Anyway, M-Net recently revealed that the winner of the 2006 competition will receive a 3 year, US$150,000 modelling contract from Elite Model Management New York.
Good luck girls!!!!

Aisha (Nigeria) – Born on November 2, 1984 in Lagos, Aisha Danjuma stands 1.76m tall. A student who speaks English, Yoruba and Hausa, her role model is Nigerian model Funmi Iyanda. In her own words Aisha admires Funmi for being ”very independent” and ”an epitome of Africa beauty.” And asked to describe herself Aisha says that she is ”simple, God-fearing, smart and adventurous.” A fan of designer Zara, Aisha’s favourite color is blue.

Ishioma (Nigeria) – At just 18 years of age, Ishioma Onyebo is already a real go-getter which is summed up by her approach to life, ”forward ever, backward never!” A supporter of Nigerian talent (including designers Dakova and Deola Sagoe), Ishioma says that if she makes it to the NFOA final at Sun City, she’ll be ”on top of the world”. Blessed with a sense of humour, Ishioma has two sisters. She entered the Nokia Face of Africa because she wanted to fulfil her dream of becoming a supermodel.” Ishioma speaks English, Igbo and Yoruba.

    Am i the only one that sees that these chics look really skinny? Or is it being overlooked because its a pre- requisite?
    The face of Africa is plump, not skinny. Anyone can tell you that? We are not westerners, we are AFRICANS and that goes hand in hand with a big butt…but then I am just talking to myself, aren’t I?
    Haba, even Oluchi wasn’t as skinny as this sef!
