Years after veterans like Linda Ikeji and Uri Jones paved the way, the modelling industry in Nigeria is booming.
Yes, there are Nigerian models repping us in South Africa, Europe and New York but there are some top notch Nigerian models who are choosing to stay in Nigeria and are enjoying lucrative careers. With companies like MTN and Celtel willing to pay top-dollar (or should I say top-naira) to models who feature in their advertising campaigns. I am sure this is enough motivation to keep these models in Nigeria.
Here are the Top 3 Nigerian models that are currently based in Nigeria.
Dolapo Olorunisola, Warebi Martha and Isio Wanogho. Coincidentally, all 3 girls were nominated for the 2007 edition of the Future Awards. Although the prize was taken by SA based, Doyin Haastrup, these ladies still need to be commended for their efforts.
Isio recently hosted an edition of the Nigeria International Show – See HERE
