The 2014 Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria came to an end on Saturday, September 6, 2014 as two lucky contestants were announced as the winners of the 2014 competition. 16-year-old Mayowa and 19-year-old Victor both walked away $5,000 richer and with a 2-year modeling contract with Beth Model Agency.
The grand finale of EMLN took place on Saturday 6th September 2014 at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Several celebrities were spotted at the event and red carpet photographs will follow shortly. Celebrities like Toolz, Toke Makinwa, Genevieve Nnaji, Praiz, Chidinma, Bridget Awosika and more were in attendance of the event hosted by Illrhymz and Fade Ogunro.
The competition, judged by Agbani Darego, Lola Maja, Kelechi Amadi-Obi and Bola Balogun, was truly a tight one as the day started with 20 models (10 male and 10 female), later cut down to 10 models ( 5 male and 5 female) and finally concluded with 2 models – the male and female winners of the night.
Amid the celebration and joyous smile, 19-year-old Victor could not hold back the tears of joy and the parents of 16-year-old Mayowa could not contain themselves either as they jumped on stage to hug their daughter.
The winners are also now the face of Aquafina and they will represent Nigeria alongside 80 other countries and will stand a chance of winning $150,000 USD at Elite Model Look International world finals and a chance to win a modeling contract with Elite model management worldwide.
