Africa's Next Top Model

An African version of Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model is coming to South Africa, and it'll be titled Africa's Next Top Model, with Nigerian supermodel Oluchi Onweagba Orlandi filling in the Tyra Banks role as host, producer and mentor to the models.

The new reality competition spin-off will start filming in Cape Town in August for pay-TV broadcaster M-Net, and will later this year on M-Net's AfricaMagic channels.

The show will be produced by Gavin Wratten - the man behind South Africa's version of American Idol, called Idols.

In Africa's Next Top Model, 12 models from across Africa will compete for the title.

"The African version of the franchise is long overdue and I expect the show to be a smashing success across the continent," said Oluchi Orlandi. 

America's Next Top Model has already seen international spin-offs in 35 countries including Australia, China, Brazil, France, Sweden, Canada, Italy and the UK.
