Salieu Jalloh breaks into Top 50 Male Models List

The recently updated top 50 male models list by models.com has seen Salieu debut at a good #45 which is pretty decent for a debutante. He happens to be the second of the only 2 black models on the list, the first being Travone Hill who bagged a CK contract that helped him debut at #35.
Salieu is however one of the most visible models at the moment and my bet is on him stepping into Tyson Beckford's shoes. He has only being modelling for a year and within that time he managed to feature in ss09 runway shows for the likes of Zzegna, Yigal Azrouel, Thom Browne and Marc Jacobs.
His F/W 09 runway gigs included Zzegna, Tommy Hilfiger, Libertine, Tim Hamilton, William Rast, Gerlan Jeans, Richard Chai and Victor Glemaud. He also bagged United colors of Benetton campaign which is de riguer for any wannabe model of color.
Currently and editorial favorite and has featured in Magazines like British GQ, Vibe, Complex Magazine and countless many others.

Well i'd like to officially say congratulations to You Salieu Jalloh :oD keep doing your thing and i bet you can go all the way to the top 10.

THE TOP 50 LIST AT MODELS.COM IS RACIST!! SALIEU JALLOH SHOULD BE HIGHER ON THE LIST-- AND OTHER AFRICAN MODELS SHOULD BE ON THE LIST, INCLUDING DOMINIQUE HOLLINGTON AND DAVID AGBODJI, AMONG OTHERS...

Take note!!!
