Africa’s Next Top Model
This will be show’s 7th official spin-off after several countries like Albania & Germany also had their own versions. Nigerian model Oluchi Onweagba Orlandi is to serve as host and co-producer for the African version of the successful TV show.
Tyra was clearly excited when she tweeted:
The show will stick to its original format 12 lucky beauties will be chosen from 8 African countries & will all take part in several photo shoot challenges over the course of 10 episodes with one girl getting eliminated every week.
There is no word on who the judges will be (David Tlale maybe?) but the entire season will be shot on location in Cape Town as from August (No surprise there). The broadcasting rights for the show were given to Mnet Africa & will most likely be aired on one of their channels.
