Africa’s Next Top Model follows supermodel hopefuls from all over the Continent as they strive to prove they have what it takes to make in the cutthroat world of modeling!


Africa’s Next Top Model will conduct a continent wide search to find 12 top contenders who will compete for the coveted modeling contract and have the dream of a lifetime come true.


Over a period of several weeks, the 12 lucky contestants will be trained by some of the top-modeling experts in the world…experts who will teach them about fashion, runway skills, physical fitness and publicity. And the entire time the contestants will be living under one roof in a house that is equipped with cameras and microphones to record their every move, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In addition, the contestants will be evaluated on a regular basis by an elite panel of judges lead by Oluchi Orlandi. These judges will be experts from the industry and will narrow down the competition week-to-week until two finalists go head-to-head. And in the end, one lucky winner will be chosen…the winner who will become the first ever Africa’s Next Top Model!
This will be the largest scope that the Top Model franchise has ever hit! We are looking all over the entire continent to find the most beautiful girl with raw talent, originality, creativity, passion and humor!


Oluchi Orlandi was born in suburbs of Lagos Nigeria. At age seventeen, she won the continent wide “Face of Africa” competition before moving to New York to work with Elite. Since then Oluchi has gone on to international fame gracing the covers of Elle magazine, i-D, Pop and Italian Vogue as well as being a seven-time Victoria’s Secret Angel. Currently signed with DNA modeling agency, Oluchi has worked with the industry’s best photographers (Steven Klein, Nick Knight, Patrick Demarchelier) as well as walked the runways of fashion’s top designers (Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Christian Dior).

Having garnered such success in the modeling industry with countless ad campaigns and magazine editorials, Oluchi is a shining inspiration to supermodel hopefuls from the Continent as they compete to be Africa’s next top model!
