April 28, 2013 – Africa’s Next Top Model Debuts: Nigerian Model Oluchi To Host African Version Of Tyra Banks’ Show
When I saw this news flash few hours ago, I’m like how come Africans love to copy Americans? This bulging question went to bed with me last night.
I wonder why Africans can’t come up with a unique idea that will break generational barriers instead of copy-catting everything Americans do.
When you talk of popular American-British shows like who want to be a millionaire, Xfactors, American got talent, American Idol, etc, there is a Nigerian-African version of everything. Seriously, I’m not that impressed with this idea.
Ok back to the real gist, Nigerian model Oluchi will be hosting the African version of Tyra Banks’ Next Top Model show.
Though a day hasn’t been set for this upcoming model hunt show, Oluchi confirmed via her Twitter page that the show will debut soon.
See her tweets below;
“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.
