"After an emotional, 9-week rollercoaster, the final 3 were whisked away to New York City, where they had to impress the high-powered agents at one of the world's top agencies: DNA Model Management. In the end, Aamito from Uganda reigns supreme, and now stands as the first-ever Africa's Next Top Model. Congratulations Aamito!"
Since November 10, 2013, 12 supermodels have been battling it out for the top prize that includes a 1-year modeling contract with DNA, a New York based modeling agency and a cash prize of $50.000 among others.
