Ah, Ty Ogunkoya. We’ve’ve loved Ty for a while now and we’ll tell you why.
You see, Nigerian men are generally a good looking bunch. But every now and then you see a rare exception- someone so painstakingly gorgeous that you wonder just how long it took God to carve such a beautiful piece of perfection. Ty Ogunkoya is that exception. And that’s why he is our Hottie of the Week.
Born right here in Naij in 1990, someone had the good sense to realize he was too pretty to keep to himself and he was signed to New York Model Management in 2008. Ty’s angular, eye catching features were a standout on the runway for his first full season and he quickly racked up a number of clients including Versace, Belstaff, Costume National, Hermes, Krizia and Etro. The model also regularly slays on his instagram, sometimes with the help of his beautiful model friends but mostly with his stunning girlfriend, Billie (who, of course, is also a model. Sigh…life is unfair.)
We’re especially proud of Ty because in the midst of a blatant lack of diversity in the fashion and modelling industry he continues to work and represent colored people in fashion, appearing in major fashion shows and campaigns around the world.
Also, have we mentioned that he’s really really hot?
Continue to slay Ty!
