Last night was Episode 5 of the much-anticipated model search Africa's Next Top Model (#ANTMAfrica). I had the extreme pleasure of being a guest-judge alongside the principle judging panel comprised of former supermodel and Photographer Josie Borain, Creative Director Remi Adetiba, and formidable model mentor and host Oluchi.
The model hopefuls from all over the continent are beautiful and diverse, and the show is exactly what's needed to boost the perception of the African fashion industry as credible, edgy, competitive and very, very real.

If you missed the show last night, catch the repeats Monday at 18.30 EAT, Wednesday at 00.30 EAT, and Saturday at 20.30 EAT on AfricaMagic Entertainment (MNET). For new episodes of Africa's Next Top Model watch Sunday nights at 20.00 EAT. True to form, there's a lot of model drama, great styling, cool creative guests, and stunning South African cityscapes.
