The Victoria’s Secret Angels took the runway by storm at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last night. The show which began airing in 2001 is perhaps one of the biggest modeling events in the fashion world.

Nine African models were a part of last year’s show, a rising number from previous years. However, only 6 African models were confirmed for the 2018 show which will air on the 3rd of December.

Nigerian model Mayowa Nicholas joined Grace Bol, Duckie Thot, Cindy Burna among other African models for the glamorous show at the Pier 94 in New York.

Mayowa shared photos of herself before the show. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to attend last year but got her chance at the spotlight for the VSF 2018 show.

She shared her excitement with a post on Instagram:

What a day !
Beyond thrilled for you guys to watch this show .Today was a moment to remember not only did I get to walk with the most beautiful and powerful women, but my one and only inspiration (my mom) got to watch me in the audience living this dream .
To all the girls reading this , I hope you feel represented and know that your dreams are valid as long as you’re alive and ready to work hard in achieving them.
Thank you @victoriassecret@johndavidpfeiffer @10magazine for this moment ❤️.

We can’t wait to watch the full show when it airs in December!
