Recently, we had an interview with Badmus Dasilva, an up and coming model to reckon with. It was a great session with lots if fun. He has walked several runways within and outside Nigeria like; Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Africa Fashion Festival, NDCA fashion show, Model of Africa and so on; campaign ad with Airtel Nigeria; photoshoots with several photographers like the famous Hakeem Salam Photography, Ofuro Ighalo Photography, Abu Salami photography, Fresh Muse, had a creative shoot with the renowned ‘King of Special Effect’ Leke Shades in a slavery-themed photoshoot and to crown it all, he’s the current face of All African Fashion Week 2015. He’s surely a great deal. *wink*
