For an event that has the backing of world’s biggest cosmetic brand, L’OREAL amongst others, Nigeria’s Next Super Model 2012 will see StyleMania Magazine (Nigeria’s version of VOGUE) sponsor the event, which is undoubtedly Africa’s biggest model search.
Regarding the sponsors, the brief available to us states:
“…going by the major sponsors this year, L’Oreal Paris and sponsorship coming from Nigeria’s answer to Vogue, StyleMania magazine, it has become a thing of joy to see this brand (NNSM) waxing this strong. From watching the girls from this show jet setting the world it was not a surprise to see that the biggest cosmetic company in the world L’Oreal Paris with its mega brands like Dark and Lovely and Maybelline New York have indicated that both brands will be used to sponsor this show.Mania has become the magazine that Nigerian models look up to to do their model books. Dimeji Alara, the Editor of the said magazine will be a judge in the house and at the grand finale and of course bringing a wealth of experience to the show. Nigerians will be seeing this show on international and local TV stations.”
With former Miss World 2001, Agbani Darego as the global spokesperson for L’Oreal brand, we hope to have many young female models in Nigeria aspire to the zenith of their respective careers.
As the iconic magazine joins L’ Oreal Paris as a topnotch sponsor, NNSM 2012 is set to be the mother of all models shows in Nigeria this year.
