Girls Flock around me––2011 Model of Africa

The final year Ordinary National Diploma (OND) Office Technology and Management student of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede, Owerri, was one of the contestants at Africa’s biggest male models search held June 18 by the Ember Creek Poolside on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.

He is also the current Mr Imo, a pageant he won in March this year as well as Mr Campus (Federal Polytechnic, Nekede). Nwadike, who is billed to participate in the prestigious Mister International competition to hold in Singapore this year, speaks with Sunday Sun on his passion, future and other issues. Excerpts…

How did your journey into modeling start?

It started a very long time ago at a tender age. Those days in nursery school we did this pageant thing as kids and I was crowned king at that time. It was then the passion started and I didn’t want to go back. God has also been there for me, and any contest I participate in I win.

What stands you out from other contestants?
I believe God gave me a very good physique and I work on myself, too. Pageant is not only about physical fitness. Mental fitness also matters; how you use your IQ. I believe I prepare myself both physically, spiritually and psychologically for any contest I participate in, and it has been working for me.

Do you groom yourself?

Yes, I do have a place I groom myself. I work out also on my own.

Do you diet to keep in shape?

Inasmuch as I don’t like saying it, some will call it starving, but I don’t see it that way. I believe it is the right move to actualize something you want; keeping yourself on a diet, not being able to eat the normal food every day. But the end justifies the means, because it gives you what you want. It keeps you normal and fresh.

Most guys like solid food. Do you skip that for modeling?

I like food a lot, but the more I delve into this part of my career, I start learning there are some things I really have to stop doing to excel, and food is one of them. I call it sacrifice. You have to sacrifice something to be able to attain your goals. I have to sacrifice food. Although it’s a big deal, it is a necessary sacrifice for me.

How did you get into this competition?

I got the information from a friend and later I saw it on Facebook. I don’t miss my opportunities. That is one thing about me.

How did you prepare?

It wasn’t something new preparing for a contest, but this, for me, was a little bit different. The challenge was much stronger. This is a guy coming from the South East and a student to contest with people from other parts of Nigeria and Africa. I was also writing my exams. So I was thinking of the exams and the contest, which kind of put me in a psychological trauma. But at the end of the day God gave me the wisdom to organize myself well. The challenges were financial, physical and spiritual. But I don’t let anything to become a barrier to my career. I fill in the blank spaces.

Another challenge was the distance, travelling from the East to Lagos. But like I told you, I don’t let anything become a barrier; I had to take the bold step. And I thank God that the end really justified the means as I emerged winner.

What was the reaction of your parents for leaving school for the pageant?

My parents are the best in the world. They are people that support anything their children want to do. They give every support when you confide in them what you want to do. I am happy God gave me such parents that understand the modern world; not the old fashioned kind. They understand what the world is saying right now. Talent speaks more these days. It’s a kind of advice for other parents to allow their children’s talent to show. When you see your children’s talent, push them towards it. They become happier, and parents love seeing their children happy. My parents really supported me to pursue this to the end. They are very happy that at the end of the day I emerged winner.

Are your parents into entertainment?

No, they are into business. But as I said earlier, they are parents that understand the modern world and what it is all about. They are parents that want to give the best to their kids.

How did your colleagues in school take your victory?

I’m a celebrity in school already as Mr Campus, Mr Imo and by God’s grace now Model of Africa. By God’s grace, I will become Mr International. I want to see myself as the first person to bring that crown to Nigeria. The students were overwhelmed, my state was so happy, my governor congratulated me.

As an ambassador, I told myself I will not disappoint my people, and I did not. They were so happy. I couldn’t even come out for days, because people won’t let me. They always want to see me. The challenges were there, but it was fun.

The recognition, the acceptance, people want to identify with you. It is fine but somehow, it is a kind of distraction as a student. I’m here to learn and if I cannot learn, it becomes a problem. God still gives me the wisdom to excel in my academics.

I have an official car as Mr Imo and the money given me was all right and I would be representing the state at Mr Nigeria UK in October this year.

How do handle the babes on campus?

Ladies, girls, eh, actually, you know girls now, they don’t take eyes off celebrities. But I have my time with women. I see them as something that really have to be there for us. They are always around me but I know how to handle them because I know where I am coming from. The ladies are not much of an issue, because I know how to handle them.

Who provided your costumes?

Most of my costumes were provided by designers in Nigeria such as David Wej, who provided our evening wear. B-eazy Footwear provided all the footwear; Mai Atafo provided the casuals and Desmond provided the accessories. We were allowed to create traditional attire on our own. I dressed like a warrior at the contest. The outfit was a collection of African skin; I had to get my own shield and a sword. Apart from the designers providing the costumes, I had to show my own side of creativity and I tried to display African stuff, dressing like an African warrior.

What is next for you?

God has the final say. I am preparing for the forthcoming Mr International and I’m looking forward to this big contest later this year. Also, I’m open for fashion shows and other jobs in the entertainment industry. This is the end of my pageant trip; the contest I’m going for now is the height of every pageant. After that I don’t think I will contest again. I have to go into other side of the industry, the runway. I can sing; I believe I can act also. I’m open for the entertainment industry.

Academically, the Rector said to me, ‘the way you are going, are you sure you are coming back to school for your HND?’ I told him I’m not too sure, because I know I have something higher for the future. I see myself studying abroad and reading another course; the course that has to do with my line of career. I want to read Theatre Arts and also modeling. After my National Diploma, I’m going for something higher, academically.

Tell us about childhood?

I was born and brought up in Onitsha. My dad gave me a kind of training that I so much appreciate. He had to sideline me from that tartish life to a more civilized one. Mingling with street boys was one thing he never encouraged from day one. That is why if I tell somebody I grew up in Onitsha, they don’t believe me.

My way of life is quite different from what people say about that part of the South East. My primary education was in Onitsha. I also did my secondary there from JSS I to III before I had to move to a seminary school in Uturu, Okigwe. There, I was fed well spiritually, mentally and physically. My training there really helps me. I left secondary school in 2006 and went through the stress of JAMB in securing admission. Finally, I found myself in the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede.
