West Africa's Next Top Model was a planned reality documentary based on Tyra Banks America's Next Top Model in 2008 which would have featured contestants from all West African countries including Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Liberia and Nigeria against each other in a variety of competitions to determine who would win title of West Africa's Next Top Model and a lucrative modelling contract with an international model agency in hopes of a successful future in the modeling business.

The competition was supposed to be hosted by Nigerian supermodel Oluchi Onweagba.[1][2] Auditions began in March 2009, but due to unknown reasons, the show never aired and was left without any TV station. No contestants were ever chosen to compete on the show.

Onweagba later went on to host a similar competition with the creation of Africa's Next Top Model in 2014. In contrast to West Africa's Next Top Model, Africa's Next Top Model admits contestants from the entire African continent.[3]
