17 Year Old Cynthia Abdulahi Wins “Nigeria’s Next Supermodel” 2013 Competition in Lagos



Cynthia Abdulahi wins Nigerias Next Supermodel 2013 - BellaNaija - NovemberWell we must have some psychics in the building, because some of you called it!

Following the finale which held on Saturday 23rd November 2013 at the Oriental Hotels, Lagos, 17 year old Kogi State native Cynthia Abdulahi was named the winner of the Nigeria’s Next Supermodel 2013. Cynthia, who burst into tears as soon as her name was called, left the event with the winning title, a brand new Hyundai Accent car courtesy of Studio 24 and a 1 year modelling contract with Isis model agency.

For those of you wondering where Dimeji Alara is, we can safely say he has been quite busy as he was one of the judges for the competition. Other judges included Jennifer Olize of Music Meets Runway, Declan Eytan of Vogue Italy, Ema Searle, Mon Ami, Eunice Eyo and Bunmi Ademokoya.

Congratulations to the winner.

    i thought models are meant to be 18 years and above, and to think its a supersmode competition. Nigeria and its bullshitsss

    I like Cynthia. There is something unrefined about her that is so refreshing.
    She might be a breath of fresh air- time will tell!

    @yetunde,shut up ur dirty mouth,people like u are the reason why nigeria is bull-shiit…what do you know?…I believe u must be over 30,if ur light didnt shine while u were her age is no ones fault,blame ur village and dont stain her crown….if vogue italy agree with it who are u to talk rubbish. …shame on you….congrat dear cynthia…go and rule the fashion world and make naija proud…

    Guys, no need for the silly words, but to you dear yetunde,
    you should know about something before you comment your stupid
    thoughts. Girls outside the country launch themselves into the
    modeling scene as early as 14. Our own Oluchi was 16 when she was
    scouted. Bunmi ademokoya was 17 when she won best model of the
    world. Female models start at 14. Thank you Amaka, there is this
    mysterious stare that she comes out with on the runway, she is
    really a diva. Uju she is not a joke, Cynthia is 5.11 tall. Favour
    is 6.2

    She looks anorexic. That’s said with all the love in my heart. Looking forward to when the pressure to be stick thin for models will pass.

    Thanks Uchenna, it is a “mysterious stare”. Seen only if you look shrilly enough!
