After a long awaited much anticipated landing in the West, Nbs Television and Royal Essence delivered the Runway Heat Stars to Mbarara on Saturday 8th July at Club Vegas.
Runway Heat has gained repute as an open platform for all youth intent on being models or designers across Uganda, and the Western region leads the pack by closely watching the show on TV and online, studying the cast and estimating potential weaklings to take out!
Their moral was immediately boosted by a photoshoot and video shoot for the show around their town, spanning the whole municipality from high court grounds to the famous “Amahembe g’ente” monument.
The town’s curiosity was evident, and by 7pm, Club Vegas was a beehive of activity as resellers thronged in, grabbed a beer and eyed the stage.
Homegrown talents Cynthia Tumushabe and Julianna Natukunda from Crooze Fm joined Boss Model Flosha to adjudicate over the night.
Runway Heat stars from Jinja, Mbale, Kampala and Entebbe were present to bear witness.
It was clear the Western region models had done their homework, easily bumping off the judges’ questions with witty answers, and wowing the crowd with their poses in response to the “Can you give us 5 high fashion poses?” question.
A few misfired, but compared to the dramatic responses judges got in other regions, not bad.
Highlights of the night were an awesome showcase of blues and reds by the Runway Heat cast and Essence models for fast rising designer Shema De Reigner from Tropics Designs, Kawempe, Kampala, followed by a breath taking dance session by the show’s official Dj Mr.Scratch Dj Mark all night.
9 models made it to the Runway Heat cast, and will join their competition at the monthly Sands&Colors beach showdown at Lido beach Entebbe on Sunday July 30th, where for the very first time, fans will see all models from each region in action against each other. Be there.
Only one of these models will emerge victor at the end of season 1 in October, winning a brand new car and endorsement deals among other rewards.
Get ready to vote and support your favorite because soon, all regional contestants will fight for their space at bootcamp, with weekly evictions live on your number 1 channel Nbs-Always.
Catch the show every Thursday at 8pm on Nbs Television, repeats on Saturday 4pm.
