GLAMOUR: As a former model, what inspired you to start Beth Model Africa?

Elizabeth: I moved back to Nigeria in 2003 after modeling in the UK for 5 years. Upon moving to Lagos, I discovered that there were no professional agencies in Nigeria, which was a shame because Nigeria has so much talent but there was no one to help discover and nurture this talent. That motivated me to create Beth Models and the rest is history.

GLAMOUR: Your agency is one of the few in the world that promotes African talent. Why go this route?

Elizabeth: I believe African talents deserve to be showcased. There aren’t a lot of reputable model agencies in Africa and when I saw that gap in the industry I felt like I had a duty to fill it. My goal with Beth Models was to promote and showcase the limitless opportunities in the model industry in Africa. I knew I had to be the change I wanted to see.

GLAMOUR: With your experience, is there a noticeable improvement in the modeling industry when it comes to representation and diversity?

Elizabeth: There’s definitely been an improvement when it comes to representation in the modeling industry. More African models are getting global opportunities and international representation. A lot of international agencies have also become more inclusive of African talents as the years have progressed.

GLAMOUR: Can you tell us about a few success stories/models from your agency?

Elizabeth: We’ve been blessed to see so many of our models excelling all around the word and representing Africa on the global stage. Mayowa Nicholas, Davidson Obennebo, Olaniyan Olamijuwon, Nyagua Ruea and Victor Ndigwe are a few of our most inspiring successes. They have been featured on magazine covers for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, W Mag, Dazed and many more. They’ve also worked with major fashion houses like Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford, Victoria’s Secret, Tiffany & Co., Dolce & Gabbana, Berluti, the list goes on.
