Former face of and current sales personnel at Pulse.ng;Tarere Obaigbo emerges Best Model Nigeria 2015.

She was crowned winner after a keen contest in Lagos which involved over thirty (30) models from across Nigeria.

“I’m so excited that I won. When you believe in something and you keep trying, nothing can stop you. My greatest challenges were the fact that there were so many experienced and pretty ladies in the house but I thank God that I won. My dream is to be a mentor to younger girls. I already have a chatting platform were I address younger models called oreime.com, I involve myself in pageants serving as a consultant for other pageant organizers and I am also working on a fashion pageant to hold later this year at BICS Garden Lekki, aimed at encouraging and supporting intelligent and beautiful upcoming models.” Tarere Obaigbo shared her excitement about winning the crown.

Tarere opened up about juggling modelling with sales; "Working with Pulse.ng as a marketer and being a beauty queen, I have learnt to apply my experience as a model and a brand, to work more effectively and sell sell sell. Taking my understanding of a brand, how it relates with an audience and helping other brands connect (with Pulse.ng as a bridge) to their audience. As a model I automatically assume the role of a brand, the marketer,an ambassador all in one, and I understand that the brand needs an audience, this is where Pulse.ng comes in, this understanding of the relation between the two, makes marketing much easier and inevitably modelling."

Consular General of Italy in Nigeria, Andrea Pompermaier said "Where there is beauty, fashion and art, there you will find Italy,” commenting on why the embassy has been supporting Best Model Nigeria, “Milan is one of the most important centres for fashion in the world so it is a pleasure to be here today. We’re working together to strengthen the relationship between the Nigerian fashion industry and Milan.”

The beautiful Lola Alao Nollywood actress was one of the judges, other dignitaries at the event include the former commissioner for youth and sport Delta State Dr. Austin Izagbo, Azu Amatus, Emeka Smith and more.

According to the organizers, the competition was born out of a passion to engage Nigerian youths in productive venture; to create activities that will build a vibrant modeling industry in Nigeria; to promote tourism and cultural exchange within and outside Nigeria; to produce super models of international standard; to showcase talents in the fashion, style industry and to expose winners to modeling opportunities within and outside Nigeria. Concluding that they derive pleasure from seeing winners and contestants taking the front seat in the modeling, fashion and style industry globally.
