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!!!!
