It’s been half a decade since Africa’s Next top Model premiered on our TV screens. Hosted by Oluchi Onweagba, the show saw an array of hopefuls go through the trials and tribulations of being a real life model. The winner of the one and only season we ever had was Aamito Stacie Lagum who’s star continues to rise in the fashion industry. Lets have a look at the work that earns her the Africa’s Next Top Model status.
