America's next top model franchise hits Africa to be hosted by Supermodel Oluchi...


The America's next top model Franchise is set to debut in Africa as  Africa's next top model thanks to supermodel and first ever face of Africa Oluchi Onweagba-Orlandi

“I am excited to be hosting Africa’s Next Top Model and it is great to be part of the successful America’s Next Top Model franchise that Tyra Banks created and has hosted for an impressive 20 cycles thus far in the U.S.

The African version of the franchise is long overdue and I expect the show to be a smashing success across the continent. My company, LuLu Productions, will be partnering with Never Machine productions with Gavin Wratten as co-executive producer and also one of the giant media houses to help make this show a big success.” she said.

 The reality competition series will reportedly be shot primarily on location in South Africa and is slated to air pan-regionally in Africa on the MNET Africa Magic channels in 2013. 
Oluchi will serve as host and executive producer, and South African Tourism is sponsoring the show, which will begin production in August in Cape Town. Models will be selected from countries throughout Africa like Ghana,Kenya,Tanzania,Angola and lots more..

 CBS Studios International has sold the African format/Franchise rights for America's Next Top Model to New York-based LuLu Productions, owned by Oluchi.

Tyra banks also took to social networking site Twitter to welcome Oluchi and express joy at the new development see tweets below.
