Oluchi Onweagba's  And Agbani Darego's  Success,  Luck or Destiny?


Super-Model Oluchi Onweagba

Oluchi Onweagba was born at Lagos. Her father was a civil servant, and her mother a nurse. Oluchi grew up in the suburbs of Lagos with her two brothers and sisters, where she hawked fruits on the street to help augment her family's income. At age 16, despite her ignorance towards fashion and modeling, Oluchi accepted a friend of her family’s urging her to compete in the 1998 M-Net's 'Face of Africa' competition. She won that contest and played in the film "After The Sunset". Elite Models Management awarded her a three-year modeling contract which sent her to the top of the fashion industry and she quickly became one of the most sought after models.

Oluchi has become a true icon proudly representing her Africa in the international fashion industry. She has graced the covers of Italian Vogue, I-D, Elle, Untold, Surface and also featured in Nylon, Marie Claire, Allure, and Vogue in a variety of different languages. Furthermore, Oluchi became the face of the campaigns for Gianfranco Ferre, Victoria’s Secret, Gap, Express, Banana Republic, and Ann Taylor. She has also worked as a runway model with such big names as John Galliano, Christian Dior, Costume National, Chanel, and Giorgio Armanie, etc. Oluchi is more than just a pretty face. Her remarkable humility and friendly disposition endears her to almost everyone. She knows that beauty and pretty face will someday fade away so She's currently pursuing an associate’s degree.

Oluchi's success from 'street to stardom' has been a source of inspiration to many young Nigerian girls. But Oluchi's success is not by accident. She is a well-raised child who appreciates her humble background and continues to carry her success with humility and Obedience to God.



Agbani Darego Miss World 2001

Nigerian-born Agbani Darego was a 19-year-old Computer student at the University of Port Harcourt when she competed for the 'Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria'. She finished as a runner-up. But a scandal rocked the contest when it was learnt that the supposed winner Valerie Ama Peterside lied about her age and educational attainment. She was stripped of her title. So Agbani Darego was tasked to fill in the vacant position and represented Nigeria at the Miss Universe Pageant.

Exuding grace and unique beauty, Agbani dazzeled everyone and eventually won the hearts of many observers. When the finals night came in she was one of the ten finalists. Such feat was almost an equivalent of winning the title because Nigeria had never seen her ladies reaching this far.

But Agbani did not give up as she went on to contest the Miss World contest. With a very elegant lime green dress, her towering figure was a huge plus that night. The gown she used was a far better choice than what she used at Miss Universe. She went on to win the Miss World Contest. Her victory instantly swept the country bringing pride to Nigeria and Africa.
