UGANDAN model Stacie ‘Queen’ Aamito reached the Top 5 in the first Africa’s Next Top Model in Episode 7 shown on TV last Sunday.

And she did it in style, after beating all the other contestants in the challenge that saw the girl wear men’s clothing and pose with a semi-nude male model.

Aamito thus becomes the first Ugandan girl to reach the top 5 of a continental-wide model search. In all the years of the face of Africa model search (1998-2007) no Ugandan girl reached the Top 5.

Hellen Mugisha, Patricia Namayirira, Munira Namakula and Lucy Suubi all reached the final 10, but never got beyond that.

In Episode 7, the girls wore over-sized men’s suits by South African designer Craig Port. Unlike their last challenge, where their prop were goats, this time it was 17-year-old male model Dave Kabamba, who was only dressed in brief briefs.

In their brief they were told to dominate Kabamba, and come off as strong, independent though sensual women.

When the photographs were finally shown, Port called Aamito’s picture ‘iconic’, and she was declared the winner of that challenge. As a prize for winning she got a night out at a cocktail bar with two other girls and Oluchi.

South Africa’s Michelle was eliminated in that episode, which now leaves only 5 girls out of the initial 12. Joining Aamito in the Top5 are South Africa’s Cheandre, Angola’s Michaela, Nigeria’s Opeyemi, and Ghana’s Roselyn.

3 more episodes remain and the winner will get a modeling contract with New York-based DNA Model Management, and a cash prize of US$50,000 (sh125m).
