The future of modelling as a career in Africa?
The future of modelling in Africa is looking bright, though slow but there have been improvement in the last 2 years. However, we need lots of work to tally with the big countries.
South Africa has been able to build a stable industry for models. Their models are respected more over there than in Nigeria. Nigeria being the second in Africa still has a lot to do.
I think the major problem really is that, most parents are scared to allow their kids go into the modelling industry due to the wrong mindset they have about modelling. If we get to organise a seminar frequently to help sensitise aspiring models, I believe things will get better. we have alot of talents in Africa who are doing well abroad, but I want us to build Africa.
If our models can be respected, paid when due, and we stop politics in our castings, the future will definitely be brighter. In a few years from now Africa can take over the world.Scott Igbinoba
