A NINETEEN-YEAR-OLD model wants to grow in the modelling industry and has earned his claim to fame by scooping a prestigious title over the weekend.

Sicelo Dlamini, who lives in the CBD, was crowned Mr Teen KZN on Saturday at the Chantecler HotelMr & Miss/Mrs KZN 2019 pageant that was held in Durban.

Speaking to Echo, Dlamini said he is overwhelmed and honoured to have been crowned Mr Teen KZN 2019 and he would like to encourage other male models to enter these competitions.

“I did not just win the title in this competition but I learnt things like self-confidence and respect.

“Modelling is not just about the beauty or the money but it is also about yourself as an individual to grow,” he said.

Dlamini said this was his first big competition but he would love to enter more competitions like this in the future.

He’started modelling in 2018 when he entered Mr Imbali and won, which motivated him to enter more competitions.

“I have always wanted to be a model and enter competitions but I was too scared and I did not have the self-confidence.

“My family and friends always encouraged me not to look down on myself and [said] I must have a self-confidence.

“Since I started modelling I am now more confident. I want to go far in the modelling industry. I want to grow until I am recognised internationally,” he said.

Dlamini said he is planning on using this title to bring change in the community.
