Oluchi Orlandi in Accra

Nigerian supermodel, Oluchi Orlandi has said Ghana recorded the least turn out for the Africa Next Top Model TV show auditions across the African continent.

Oluchi and her ANTM team were in Accra two w
eeks ago to scout for models be part of the show will be hosted by Oluchi Orlandi in far away South Africa.
But the international model told a section of Ghanaian media at a press conference that numbers of models who turned up for the audition were nowhere near those of other countries her team  already visited countries.
She said about 80 ladies turned up for the Ghana auditions on Saturday July 20. Johannesburg audition had recorded over 800 hundred models just as Kenya. Mozambique also recorded over 400 hundreds models attending the audition.  
Ghana’s audition was held at the M Plaza Hotel in Accra. It is about some two weeks now that the one day auction ended and organizers are yet to announce names of models who will be given a chance to represent Ghana in the maiden edition, airing soon on free-to-air and pay-per-view television.
Oluchi was hopeful the Africa Next Top Model will grow, that was why she decided to tour the African continent to scout for models despite sponsorship challenges.

The ANTM team will in the coming days announce who among the lot has made it. Recording takes off in South Africa from August.
“We chose South Africa to host the competition because considering the African continent, South Africa is about the only country with a well-structured fashion industry and very busy one because almost every province holds its own Fashion Week”, Oluchi said on why South Africa was chosen to host the reality show.
Africa’s Next Top Model is the African extension of the very popular of America’s Next Top Model franchise owned by Tyra Banks.
