Unveiling 23-year-old Joanne ‘Nikki’ Anyasi as the face of its 2014 event, Music Meets Runway (MMR) prepares for its night of fashion and music this month in Lagos, Nigeria.
After a rigorous search throughout August, in which hundreds of potential models applied, the team at MMR named Ms Anyasi the winner, and ahead of the event’s late December date, has released their first official campaign image, with the MMR brand ambassador seen horseback, looking gorgeous.
Nikki was born and raised in Aba, Abia State in Nigeria, and attended Imo State University, graduating with a BA in French. She has worked with a variety of different African designers and walked the runway at a range of prestigious events, explaining after her win with MMR;
“I am grateful to God for getting me to this point in my career as a model.”
The beauty is seen in the campaign, styled by Jide Adedeji and Jennifer Olize, and shot by Kelechi Amadi Obi with clothes and accessories by Le Reve Pieces and Modella.
The Music Meets Runway Foundation was established in 2011 to support and empower emerging talent across the Arts, at critical stages in their creative lives. The team’s mission in holding its annual, popular event, is to use music and fashion to educate, motivate, inspire and change lives by providing assistance to the youth – either by supporting individuals’ growing business, or by bringing Arts and Crafts into the educational system, thereby creating jobs.
The 4th edition of the highly anticipated event, Music Meets Runway 2014, will be taking place on Tuesday, 23rd of December 2014 at the Eko Hotel and Suites at 8pm prompt.
Tagged “The African Edition,” the night will feature prominent designers and artists from all over Africa and we at SPICE TV are proudly sponsoring and looking forward to the big event.
