Last year, after a tedious selection series where all contestants were put to the test, Olivia Edomonu and Nosarumen Awanbor emerged winners of the Elite Model Look Nigeria 2018.

This qualified them to join finalists from all over the to compete in 35th Elite Model Look World Final which took place in Spain this week.

Alas, despite all efforts made by both the Nigerian and worldwide organizers, they were hindered by visa issues and were unable to make it to the competition.

The Elite Model Look group yesterday put up a statement on the issue where they explained their reasons for missing the competition.

They said:

“We want to send a big message of love to our 2 Nigerian contestants Olivia and Nosa who couldn’t make it to the World Final this year because of visa issues. The international and Nigerian Elite Model Look teams did everything possible to try to get them here, but unfotunately, they couldn’t attend. Their images and videos from home were submitted to this year’s jury, so they will still be considered for the 35th Elite Model Look World Final – but we miss you guys! Lots of love to you and the Nigeria team”

2016 Elite Model Look Nigeria Winner who also emerged as the grand winner at the world finale in Lisbon Davidson Obennebo, returned this year to the boot camp as a catwalk coach, and taught models how to walk the runway with grace and style.

Olivia and Nosa won the competition in Nigerian last July based on not only their outstanding performance which set them apart from other contestants but also their Fashion forward sense and adaption.

We hope to see more of them in the industry.
