We saw this coming but it’s incredibly exciting nonetheless.

Mayowa Nicholas just got selected to walk in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show taking place in December.

This would make the 19-year-old model who was scouted in Lagos back in 2014, the second Nigerian since Oluchi Onweagba to walk the highly revered VSFS Runway.

She took to her Instagram Story to share the emotional moment she was confirmed at the casting in New York writing, ‘No words. I’m so grateful. VS 2017. God is so good.’
