After a detailed process of selection, the final casting of the Elite Model Search 2019 held on the 9th of September at the Eko Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
From over 1000 contestant young boys and girls, Ghanaian model Zarad Afia Tashana and Cubahiro Jordy Jeff from Burundi emerged winners of the Elite Model Search 2019.
In a bid to provide a larger platform for Africa’s aspiring models, this year’s edition was inclusive of other African countries and not just Nigeria.
The winners were chosen on not only their looks or beauty but also their personality, charm and knowledge of world trends.
Elizabeth Elohor, the Creative Director of Elite Model Look Nigeria said:
“We look at the height (Female 5’9-6ft and Male 6ft-6’3), size (4-8), Age (16-26years), Nose, skin, a well-constructed face, defined features and a well-defined figure.”
The 16yr olds would be competing on the Elite Model Look World Final taking place in Europe.
The Elite Model platform has brought to fame international models like Fei Fei Sun, Ruth Bell, Vittoria Ceretti, Greta Varlese, Benjamin Benedek, Mayowa Nicholas, Victor Ndigwe and Davidson Obennebo and it is the hope that it will do the same for these two.
