A total of 100 contestants were pre-selected and had their images sent to the Elite Management in Paris for final selection.
Last year’s winner Davidson Obennebo, went on to win the Elite Model Look world finale and is the first African to win in 33 years, making history as the first black model win the competition. When asked about future plans he talks about being hopeful to “one day becomes a successful black model.” Although he has already modelled in Paris Fashion Week and Milan with the likes of Versace, Balmain and Givenchy, Davidson is still considered to be a new face in the industry.
