Ghana's Kate Menson Wins Face of Africa 2008!

PhotobucketCongrats to Ghana's Kate Tachie-Menson who beat out nine girls to win the 2008 Face of Africa. Her win means she is the recipient of a three year $50,000 contract with O Model Africa, a modeling agency owned by Supermodel Oluchi Onweagba-Orlandi; who ten years ago won the first ever Face of Africa.

“I’m so happy right now because after having the door closed on me the first time, I did not give up and worked hard to be what the judges wanted,” said Menson in response to her win.
On the judging panel, it was clear to us all that Kate was perfectly suited to be the next Face of Africa. She’s the complete package, a model designers dream that magazine editors embrace and that catwalks are made for. Kate won the title purely on merit and the fact that she had this fairytale story, this incredible journey to the top, makes it just that little bit sweeter,” said Oluchi who pledged her support in making sure Menson is successful in the modeling business.
