Mr Model Africa 2017 winner, Jason Asare Akoto is set to represent Ghana at the annual Mr Africa pageant this year.

The Bsc Banking and Finance graduate from the University of Ghana seems to have found a passion in the modeling sector and hopes to make it big on the international scene, despite the many challeges facing the sector in Ghana.

AmeyawDebrah.com caught up with 6.5ft tall model for a  fun quick chat as follows:

How did you get into modelling?

I began modelling in 2011, not professionally at that time. Did a couple of shoots and runway shows for a friend who at that time had a clothing line {Frozen Jungle}.  My older sister actually introduced me to my first agent; she kind of gave me that first push. But in 2015 I was spotted by one French Photographer Emilio who saw potential and served as sort of a “Sensei” on my model path.

So would you say modelling in Ghana has been what you expected?

Initially I was excited and expected a more grand and matured industry. But what I met was a young but promising industry, which lacks the necessary resources, both financial and organization.

What are some of the challenges you have been facing as a model in Ghana?

As a model in Ghana I encountered numerous challenges in terms of the structure and organization of fashions, not meeting designers until the day of the show to get fitted, lack of creative advertisement and promotional strategies, models getting underpaid.

I think more financial attention must be giving to the fashion industry. Eg Banks sponsoring Fashion weeks. Organisers or fashion influencers must be more strategic with their planning and organizing fashion events in order to get the highest level of output which will hence raise the standards of the fashion industry in Ghana. In a nutshell, “Pay Attention to Details”

What has been your biggest highlight?

Well so far becoming Mr. Model Africa 2017 is the most highlighted for me

How was the journey of Model of Africa like, why did you enter, how was the experience? What do you hope to achieve after winning?’

I joined the competition because I felt it’s the most ideal platform to expand my modelling career and exposure in the Fashion Industry. The journey was very demanding but very mind opening. Equipping me with the necessary tools to operate and thrive in the Fashion Industry. Hoping it opens greater opportunities and gives me the exposure I need to get to the top.

What do you do besides modelling?

Apart from modelling I’m a personal trainer, mostly home calls. Hoping to establish state-of-the-art Sports and recreational centres among a few of other plans in the vault
