Meet Victor, the first 19 yr-old Nigerian Male Model to walk the ‘Milan & Paris’ Runway
“Victor Ndigwe just like any other aspiring model in Nigeria, hustling for jobs and trying to get into a good agency, had tried his luck with Aquafina Elite Model Look competition in Nigeriain 2012 but didn’t get the chance until his story changed in 2014 when he registered along with thousands of other hopefuls, but this time he was selected along with a female winner, Mayowa Nicholas as part of 13 finalists who got a chance to impress the Elite Model Look international judges.”
He first started out in Milan, walking the ramp for Ermenegildo Zegna and Missoni, as the first ever Nigerian male model to do so. He later went on Paris, where he made runway appearances for brands including Hermès, Balmain, Kenzo and Haider Ackermann!
He has gained several international attention. Speaking with Vogue Magazine, Victor said,
“I want to inspire other models that have dreams the same way I had them. I just want to be a good example.”
Now Victor Nidgwe will serve as an inspiration to all upcoming models, especially finalists of Aquafina Elite Model Look 2015 this weekend in Lagos.
He’s 19 years-old, studying Applied Mathematics and getting super stardom.
