For many models, being cast to walk the runways for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the ultimate dream. Becoming a Victoria’s Secret Angel means you immediately join the ranks of supermodels like Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, and Gisele Bündchen. Each year the show continues to feature more African models who are doing extraordinary things on off and on the runway and this year we have 3 new entries and 4 returning faces for the 2017 fashion show taken place in Shanghai. Inspiring a new generation of African supermodels, here are the 7 African models scheduled to walk at the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Though if I could ask one question to the organisers of Victoria’s Secrets fashion show 2017, where are other top African models like Sharam Diniz, Adwoa Aboah, Behati Prinsloo, Imaan Hammam and Grace Mahary this year?? Really wished we had more slots to contain our African queens. Just speaking out loud!!
