Oluchi Orlandi is spreading her modelling wings as she is taking on bigger projects. The 30 year old supermodel is bringing “Next Top Model ” to Africa.
Tyra Banks, another black Supermodel who created and has been hosting “America’s Next Top Model” for years couldn’t contain her excitement as she welcomed her colleague to the Next Top Model Family on Twitter.
Speaking on the partnership, Oluchi Onweagba:
“I am excited to be hosting Africa’s Next Top Model and it is great to be part of the successful America’s Next Top Model franchise that Tyra Banks created and has hosted for an impressive 20 cycles thus far in the U.S. The African version of the franchise is long overdue and I expect the show to be a smashing success across the continent. My company, LuLu Productions, will be partnering with Never Machine productions with Gavin Wratten as co-executive producer and also one of the giant media houses to help make this show a big success.”
The Reality Competition Series is set to start up this year and air in Africa on MNET Africa Magic channels. The show will be shot primarily on location in South Africa with Oluchi being the show’s Executive producer and host.
