NAIJA'S NEXT TOP MODEL

Tyra Banks' successful, "America's Next Top Model" has expanded over to Nigeria! Here are pictures of the finalists of the new Nigerian TV show, "Nigeria's Next Top Model."

*UPDATE*
According to Bella Naija, Nigeria's Next Top Model is an event and sadly not a show. The event will have an appearance by "ANTM" alum, Nnenna, who happens to be Naija.
