16 YEARS OLD WITH A BRIGHT FUTURE
ON THE COVER
Chika Emmanuel is the cover girl for our launch issue. She has striking features and the potential to put her and Nigeria on the international fashion map. She got into modelling through the encouragement of her father, an artist/fashion designer.
First thrown into the limelight when she took part in the 3rd Elite Nigeria Look this year and she won the competition. Elite Modelling Management every year scouts for models in over 50 countries with the help of 37 scouting agencies worldwide. Elizabeth Asien, director of Beth model management is a scout for Nigeria and has been doing so since 2008.
Cindy Crawford, Gisele Bundchen and Linda Evangelista are a few supermodels Elite has made successful, that is why this search gives hope to young girls who are keen on becoming supermodels.
Chika recently took part in the 27th Elite Model Look, world final in Shangai China, though not among the top 15 we are however very optimistic that she will go far in modelling. Watch out as you will be seeing her sooner than you think on the international runways of South Africa, New York, London and Paris.
