Members of the press were invited for a session to discuss the competition thus far, and the impact it hopes to have on the modeling industry in Nigeria and globally.
According to Bolajo Fawehinmi, “We are looking for ‘that girl’ that can represent a brand”.
Bolajo further went on to share that although many believe they are solely focused on looks, the judges are also very much looking for models with “presence”.
Discussing what the most exciting aspect of scouting is, the judges shared that the thrill is in visiting countries they have never been before.
Emphasizing this, Bolajo shared that Dabarechi Kalu, the 2017 winner, has been involved in a number of campaigns with indigenous and foreign globally acclaimed brands including Maki Oh, Topshop, and H&M.
