The Models and Judges of Africa's Next Top Model

Get to know the 12 models selected and the three judges of the first Africa Next Top Model hosted by Oluchi Onweagba.

We previously told you about the launch of Africa's Next Top Model by Oluchi. This eagerly anticipated event will officially kickoff in a week. Before then, we'd like to introduce you the three judges and the participating models. The first judge is supermodel Oluchi Onweagba who is also the host of the production. Next up is South African fashion editor/writer/photographer and model Josie Borain, who has been proving her worth and talent in the industry over 15 years. Last up is New York City-based Remi Adetiba who'll bring a different eye as a producer, creative director and photographer. With all their knowledge and experience in the fashion industry, the three judges will clearly cover all the different angles. Bets are made and we can unveil the photographs of the 12 models selected from all over Africa. They seem to represent the continental landscape in an organic way and we can tell you that it won't be easy to choose the first Africa Next Top Model ever.
