Can Andrella become the real deal in the modeling industry?
I have never received these much resounding yes like the one I got with this question. In an industry where deep-rooted rivalry characterize colleagues and foes in the student-modeling orbit, this young model is well respected and seen as one growing towards becoming the real deal in the modeling industry. Her passion can’t be questioned; her desire for teamwork, achieving result and acquiring knowledge are faultless. With statistics that reads waist-23, hips-33 and height- 5”11, although new in the industry, but with the rate she’s being touted, no one will be surprise to see Agbatutu Ogheneyoma Andrella cover vogue magazine as the face for biggest brands in coming years.
“My desire to become a model developed from childhood. As at 8 years old, I
remember walking up to mummy asking “mummy how would you feel to be the
mother of a superstar “a super model”. Growing older, my urge for the profession increased as I watch fashion shows on TV, admiring models on billboards and magazines; but then I didn’t know how to go about it until I got into the university, where a very good friend of mine, Iyamu Victor introduced me to the CEO, Gemian model management.
Professionally, my career began in 2018. I attended Gemian model academy
and got scouted at the end of the academy. Although, not enough support
came from family, but then I’ve got friends who are ever ready to cheer me
up. The first pair of shoes I got, I had to use my allowance for that month
because daddy would not even listen to anything concerning modeling. I
endured because modeling, to me, is not just, as people call it, a hobby.
Its my passion, my interest, its the one thing I do that brings me so much
pleasure and leaves me ignoring the tough times that come with it.
After being scouted, I attended castings for fashion shows and was privileged to work for Le physique fashion show 2018. I’ve also worked with brands like Emmanuel kings, Humphrey Ominisan and Bereal Photography. I’m looking forward to walking for Lagos fashion week, African fashion week, GT fashion weekend, and brands like orange culture, the FIA factory, Andrea Iyamah, Image Faculty, and Rhema hot. I’m a year one student at university of Benin; I hail from ughelli-north local government area, Delta state and I love the art of modeling.
