The African Model Exhibition, TAME, is a platform created for the celebration of African Models, creating awareness for African models and cloth designers. One of its objectives is to serve as a launching pad to international recognition for new and aspiring models and to show to the world the culture and beauty of Africa.
On June 25th 2017, the African Model Exhibition was held at Lekki Astoria Event Centre, Lagos. It was colour fully set ablaze by conglomeration of African Models. It was a convergence of the acme of models from across Africa for the maiden edition of The African Models Exhibition #TAME 2017. It features participants and delegates from Benin, Cameroon, Cote d’lviore, Ghana and of course Nigeria and Togo.
