    She didn’t hold auditions in Sudan and Ethiopia? Tempted to add Somalia but for security reasons I can understand why she didn’t go to Somalia. It would have been nice to have Sudanese and Ethiopians here. Not saying these models aren’t good enough, but Nubian girls, damn!

    Okay after 10 years they now bring the show to Africa – its been on every continent in the world since the 2000s. Plus each country its been on has its own show – UK, Germany etc so whats with lumping Africans together like its one country. Sorry oo not impressed. But I guess if it brings in more job opportunities to the continent okay.

      Why so pessimistic…?


      November 6, 2013 at 2:32 am

      I definitely agree with you. Why is it that every other
      country in other continents have their own top model except for
      countries in Africa? First it was going to be West Africa’s Next
      Top Model but that one never came to pass. The fashion industries
      in Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, and Ghana are more than big enough
      to be able to host their own show like Top Model. And since I know
      that isn’t very many countries from the over 50 countries in
      Africa, they can at least do it by region. West, East, Southern,
      etc. It’s so annoying that in 2013 Africa is still being lumped
      together like a country. Prepare for this to become my country vs.
      your country just like Big Brother Africa, which i feel the same
      way about.

    @nok10, if you are not impressed pls start your own show in
    Nigeria or any country you want, or you can simply change the
    channel…..#bad belleeee
