Sacramento, CA (June 6th, 2011)—Ladybrille Magazine honors Supermodel Ngo Okafor, the most downloaded black male supermodel in the world, as its Man of the Month for its June 2011 Special Anniversary/Model Edition. The “Ladybrille Man of the Month” is a monthly feature which celebrates outstanding men, locally and internationally, for their brilliant contributions to their communities at large.
“I think if I was to get into Ngo’s accomplishments, we would be here all day. He is a shining example of a brilliant entrepreneur, an individual who is able to reinvent and make himself relevant with the times and he understands the importance of giving back to his community,” said Uduak Oduok Founder of Ladybrille Magazine. “This month, he was definitely the right fit for us to motivate the brilliant men among us to insist on being only the best at what they do, never give up on their dreams and never forget to lift the young ones, especially males, in their communities as they climb to the top.”
Supermodel Ngo who began boxing only in 2005, is a two-time heavyweight champion, winning back-to-back Golden Gloves awards, amateur boxing’s highest distinction.
