Filed under : Africa, Fashion

Lukando Nalungwe

Lukundo is a 22-year-old student from Kabwe, Zambia.

The Top Five were

Ernania Manuel- Mozambique (Top3)

Rosanna Hall- Zimbabwe (Top3)

Thembi Kobeli- South Africa

Esperanca Vemba- Angola

& Lukando Nalungwe – Zambia (Winner),

Currently studying for a certificate in Business Administration, Lukundo is a movie aficionado who lists Van Helsing, The Matrix, Transformers, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean and 300 as her favorite films. She says the best thing about Africa is its “beautiful historic places and wildlife” and names Paris as her favorite place outside of the continent for its “beautiful ambience, food and perfumes”. Her sisters played a big role in her life because of their strength. If she weren’t a model, Lukundo would love to be a photographer or an explorer.

Congratulations to Lukundo! So geeked to see Zambia repping on the world stage! Next stop for Lukundo is the 2010 Spring/Summer NYC Fashion Week next week!

So guys & dolls, based on the pictures above, do you think that the judges did a good job at picking the new Face of Africa? Sound off people! Please leave us your comments below….

    am really happy for her, its the beginning of greater things in her life. look at oluchi where she came from and what she has achieved with the help of God.oluchi has kept her head high and made nigeria and africa proud. i pray this new crown foa will do africa and zambia proud. modelling takes alot of hard work and rejection and i hope she is mentally, physically and emotionally ready. wish her all the best! its the beginning of a whole new life, congrats.about if ’em judges did a good job yes, she is truly the face of africa.
