Cynthia wins Nigeria’s Next Super Model

Twenty-year old Cynthia Omorodion from Edo State has emerged winner of this year’s Nigeria’s Next Super Model (NNSM). She beat 15 other contestants to clinch the award. The contest was held at the NNSM Dome, inside the Nigerian Air Officers’ Mess, Kofo Abayomi Street, Victoria Island, Lagos last weekend.

Judging from what the organisers offered; from the red carpet to the professionally constructed stage and runway, the sitting arrangement of the modestly decorated hall, the contest which debuted last year has become one of the biggest modelling contests in the country.

The girls strutted the runway in exclusive fashion collections from one of South Africa's most brilliant designers, Tula Sindhi, and Nigeria's high profile designer Frank Osodi of House of Bunor. There were also designs from House of Jola, owned by Joan Okorodudu, originator of Nigeria's Next Super Model contest.

Judges for this year's contest were selected from a crop of international model managers and directors from South Africa. They included Deon Redman, CEO and creative producer of the Joburg, Durban and SA Fashion Weeks in South Africa; Rowlene Friedlander, Casting Director at G Casting; and, Christal William, model director at LC Models, South Africa and Mrs Remi Diagbare, editor of Vanguard Allure.
