Coming Soon: "Africa's Next Top Model"


Here's something to smile about - "America's Next Top Model" is coming to Africa!

Tyra Banks is yet again setting her sights overseas and expanding her empire one spinoff off show at a time. "Africa's Next Top Model" will become the fourth continent that has adopted ANTM's hightly successful model search-meets-reality show concept. 

12 models from across Africa compete for the title with Nigerian supermodel Oluchi Onweagba Orlandi filling in the Tyra Banks role as presenter, producer and mentor to the models. "The African version is long overdue and I expect the show to be a smashing success across the continent." said Oluchi Orlandi.

Tyra also expressed her excitement for the new show via Twitter:

CBS Studios International has given the African format rights for the show to Oluchi's New York-based production company, LuLu Productions, which will work with Wratten's Never Machine Productions in South Africa. 

There's no statement yet from M-Net but the show will primarily shoot in Cape Town, South Africa. 
Roxanne Pompa, the vice president of international format sales and production at CBS Studios International said, "Africa's Next Top Model is sure to be an entertaining celebration of the great beauty, fashion and unique stories of aspiring models from across the African continent."

Here at Arthur's Fashion World in Nairobi we're looking forward to the show, with our fingers crossed that these African supermodel hopefuls will be able to stay on their feet.
