Meet modoh

Meet Modoh (mahn-dough) Wanda, CEO of African Fashion Week Minnesota and a first-generation American with Cameroonian-Nigerian roots. She comes from a lineage of royalty, named after her great-great grandmother Queen Modoh, who ruled the Tikar people in the late 1800s in Cameroon. Miss Wanda is a graduate of the University of Phoenix with a Bachelor’s in Business Management. She successfully runs her own boutique, Modoh Fashion LLC, making her an epitome of strength and leadership. As an experienced model, Modoh was crowned as former Miss Minnesota Supermodel 2023 and continues to excel in the industry, currently working as a runway model nationwide exemplifying professionalism and dedication. With a rich cultural heritage and impressive resume, this CEO continues to break barriers and inspire others with her leadership and entrepreneurial spirit. Modoh Wanda’s journey is one of passion, hard work and determination. She’s not bossy, she’s the boss.

She started in the modeling industry first signed to Arquette Models in Minneapolis when she was 14 years old. Initially signing on  as a “hair model”, Modoh immediately gained work in modeling in trade hair shows, particularly in bridal, as well being published in Southern Minnesota Bridal and appearing on WCCO-TV for countless appearances. She then moved to New York when she was 18 and began gaining more opportunities in runway, print and TV. The rest as they say is history.
