The 2013 model casting for the premier music and fashion show, Music Meets Runway (MMR), which held last Saturday 21st September, 2013, was a tremendous success with a huge turnout of over 3000 young aspiring female and male models as against last year’s 1000 models. The event was held in the Expo Hall at the Eko Hotel and Suites in Victoria Island, Lagos. This is the latest in a series of campaigns lined up for the third edition of the Music Meets Runway, which has been tagged, ‘The Icons Edition’. What a way to start!
“being the Face of MMR has really opened lots of doors for me, it took me four years to be where I am today. The upcoming models now look to me as a role model, which feels good. I was recently cast as the lead model “The Golden Girl” in this years campaign shoot and video, later this year I will be travelling out to participate in the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. I have mixed feelings on passing the crown as the year has gone so fast, but I’m happy that I’ve laid a good legacy for my successor, I will be delighted to see who will emerge the winner as the Face of MMR 2013 and carry on where I left off in promoting the MMR brand.”
