A new promotions and media productions company has transcended normality by searching for new models, aged 16 years and above, and either stick thin or chubby, to partake in a search for the next supermodel in Botswana.
Contrary to belief that models should be stick-thin, Chengeta’s Boy Productions (CBP) is seeking out models of all shapes and sizes, who will be launched at a red carpet event on 27th of February.
Local artists, among them Fosta Juliano, formerly known as Mista Doe, Evoke and Eugene Jackson, will be performing at the mega event, which is billed to take place at Delta Cafe in River Walk.
CBP aims to kick-start the event with a wedding exposition, at which the company’s bridal gowns will be exhibited, and eventually turn the night into a music extravaganza.
Chengeta said that CBP aims to excel in what is termed as parts-modelling.
“This is where companies will be signing up to use the services of our models to advertise their commodities. We will not constrict our advertising to clothes only, but rather explore advertising in watches and other paraphernalia, such that such that the size of the model does not matter,” he said.
CBP has also donated 30 uniforms to Tsogang Primary School, and the newly discovered models are expected to hand them over after their coronation.
CBP was started in 2001 by a group of students in Molepolole College of Education (MCE). It has since grown from a small entertainment company to a major events organiser.
