Winner of Miss Eko 2014, Grace Onuoha has revealed those who inspired her present status in the showbiz industry. The beauty queen named Nollywood diva, Genevieve Nnaji and Hollywood super-model and TV personae, Tyra Banks as her role models.

Speaking to The Nation in an interview, Grace disclosed that Genevieve was her childhood star she looked up to because the superstar had performed her act to stellar heights.

“Well! I would say Genevieve Nnaji, because when I started discovering the true me of today, I recognised her as a star in my field. Genevieve has done well in her career as a model as everyone knows,” Grace confessed.

The multi-brand ambassador has taken up acting roles within and outside the shores of Nigeria since she made her breakthrough in the industry some years ago.

Miss Grace further revealed that the 'America Next Top Model', Tyra Banks, has positively affected her since she had the dream of becoming a TV personality. “And as I started growing up, it's really Tyra Banks, but basically, Tyra Banks has affected me positively. Not only has she carved a niche for herself in the modelling industry, she has also used her position as a top model to bring up other young girls in America. So, she is such an inspiration to me,” she said.
