It is actually happening and you best believe it. My imaginary BFF, Tyra Banks’ top model search franchise is finally hitting the motherland in search for Africa’s next top model. Over the years, I have witnessed many threats all over the place, with people claiming “rights” for local versions. Well, the real deal is yet to be shot between Joburg and Cape Town, where 12 young women will participate in exciting challenges over 10 episodes in 8 weeks. This show is fronted by the world famed Nigerian-born supermodel Oluchi Orlandi –who secured proper rights to the franchise and will be the show’s host and a mentor to the entrants. I’m not sure what the prizes are for the African version of the competition as yet, but I know my smizing eyes will be stuck on the telly. Good looking out Ty-ty!!!
