Nigeria: Nigeria's top models

Bella Naija blogs about Nigeria's top models, “Years after veterans like Linda Ikeji and Uri Jones paved the way, the modelling industry in Nigeria is booming. Yes, there are Nigerian models repping us in South Africa, Europe and New York but there are some top notch Nigerian models who are choosing to stay in Nigeria and are enjoying lucrative careers. With companies like MTN and Celtel willing to pay top-dollar (or should I say top-naira) to models who feature in their advertising campaigns. I am sure this is enough motivation to keep these models in Nigeria.”
