We’re crushing hard on Tanzanian model Abel Kipaso

SA Menswear week in February introduced us to many designers, and created quite a number of model superstars, among them, Abel Kipaso who walked for designers Martin Kadinda, Mustafa Hassanali, Nguni Shades and Paledi Segapo among other designers. His boyish and slightly bowed gait won us over and his walk separated him from the troupe of fresh faces.

Signed to Boss Models in Capetown (the home label of Nigerian model Olamide Ogundele) We decided to find out more about him (for you of course) and we trawled his instagram for the best and brightest pictures of Kipaso in his element. It was quite the haul.

Even in heavy face paint Kipaso still looks a million bucks walking for Palse.

Look at that smile. Even if our boy wasn’t a sought after runway model, he’d just as easily make a killing selling, well, anything.

He looks great in a swimsuit.

And even better in glitter and leather for Mustafa Hassanali.

He rocks a print heavy blazer (from Martin Kadinda) without getting overwhelmed in all that drama.

And is just as snazzy in a polo shirt and a pair of jeans.

At just twenty, Kipaso is just a baby boy with a long and interesting career ahead of him.

We hope he slays.
