Mayowa

We saw this coming but it’s incredibly exciting nonetheless.

Mayowa Nicholas just got selected to walk in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show taking place in December.

This would make the 19-year-old model who was scouted in Lagos back in 2014, the second Nigerian since Oluchi Onweagba to walk the highly revered VSFS Runway.

She took to her Instagram Story to share the emotional moment she was confirmed at the casting in New York writing, ‘No words. I’m so grateful. VS 2017. God is so good.’

Walking the Victoria’s Secret show is considered one of the highest points of every model’s career and year after year, young models from all over the world struggle to get in.

They might have been out of the scene for a while but gospel fam Makoma is back. The group is made up of five brothers and sisters all from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

After recently signing a 10-year distribution deal with BC3 MEDIA which will see them produce five albums, the group will now go on to release their fourth album titled ‘Evolution‘.

Makoma’s newest single ‘Heyiyeah‘ is an exemplary ballad. Surprisingly more classical than the Congolese style of music but sounds equally nice.
