Nigerian Modelling Industry Is A Mess—Former Mr Nigeria, Deji Bakare
2011 winner of Mr Nigeria, Deji Bakare has expressed dissatisfaction over modelling industry in Nigeria. The handsome dude explained that modellers are not respected in Nigeria like their counterparts in the advanced countries.
The rapper-cum-model, speaking with Nollywoodgists.com in an interview, said that the industry is nothing to write home about.
He lamented that modellers are only recognised on the runway, which he says should not be so.
“Modellers abroad are respected unlike here in Nigeria, where we see them as ushers and most modellers believe modelling is all about the runway thing, but in abroad, it is not it. Modellers are icons to be respected when sighted,” he said.
Deji Bakare urged the Nigerian models to be well educated, saying it is only best way to improve and be exposed as a model.
