We all love David Oyelowo and appreciate his fight for diversity in Hollywood. This goodwill is now spreading to his son, Asher, as the boy has just made a runway debut modelling at the Dolce & Gabbana Fashion Show in Milan over the weekend!
While the British-Nigerian actor almost always steps onto the red carpet with his wife and producing partner, Jessica Oyelowo, he usually keeps his two sons, Asher and Caleb, out of the limelight.
This, however, did not stop Asher from gaining attention, as Ava DuVernay revealed on Twitter that he was scouted out of a crowd in church! Asher is now signed to Next Model Management, one of the biggest and most successful modelling agencies in the world.
When it comes to diversity on the runway, it is usually one-size-fits-few. Although there is a visible growth in diversity, there is still a long way to go but we love that we have Nigerian contributions to this like Mayowa Nicholas, Ruth Akele, Ninioma and now Asher Oyelowo.
