A lot has been said about male models in Uganda and today we sit down with one.

What do you do for a living?
I’m a model. I do commercials; that is adverts, billboards, magazines and runways.

When did you start modelling?
I started in 2012 after my studies. I did Business Administration at Mubs.

How is life like being a model?
Being a model is not easy. It requires a lot of time and training. We spend most of our time in the gym, doing photo shoots and swimming. Life is costly because we always have to be on diet, whereby we have to watch what we eat all the time. We have to do a lot of research as well like watching international fashion shows.

What qualities does a standard model need to have in Uganda?
Height, weight (body toning), stylish, photogenic and good looking.

How many outfits do you usually change on a runway?
Three to four outfits.

On average, how much does a model take home after showcasing on the runway?
It depends on the organisers but we earn between Shs50,000 and Shs100,000.
And commercial modelling like billboards?
I charge from Shs500,000 to Shs2m depending on the nature of the job.

Which fashion house do you model for?
I’m a freelancer but I have worked with Flash Models, Abryanz Collections and Fashion Bay among others.

Who are your best designers?
Zara, Gucci and Armani.

Where did you learn modelling from?
I have always loved being a model, so I grew up watching fashion channels and attending modelling classes by the Flash Modelling Agency.

Who is your best male model?
Tyson Beckford and David Gandi. Locally it’s Allan Kiremerwa and Musa Onjima.

We hear male models in Uganda are used by rich women or sugar mummies. How true is this?
It’s true to a very large extent, but not all of us are not into such business. It depends on one’s personality.

How can someone get in contact with you in case they want your services?
They can reach me on my Facebook page, Danniel Beats Bulime or contact me on 0792003307.
