Her zeal, passion, confidence, popularity and beautiful smiles that the five year old exhibited charmed the iconic Nollywood actor, Desmond Elliot who went on to have a photo shoot with her as he admired her guts and said the world was the limit for Dillish in the showbiz world.

Dillish was one of the contestants who competed in Nigeria alongside other participants drawn from 11 African countries.

Recalling her daughter’s journey to the pageant in Nigeria, Dillish’ mother who is her mentor and coach Rumbidzai Chisangowerotah said she was personally nervous taking her daughter to the continental showcase.

But for her daughter Dillish it seems she had already set her mind on winning the contest, before they left the country.   

“We started our journey on the 23rd of March, around 4pm we boarded a bus to Harare and went straight to the Robert Mugabe International Airport.

“Our flight was at 1:20am, we used Ethiopian Airlines and we were supposed to connect the flight to Lagos in Addis Ababa. 

“The experience was great although it was not my first time to fly, but for my daughter Dillish it was, she was very excited to the extent that the person sitting next to her during our flight became her friend all the way,” she said.

She added that she was expecting the best from her daughter as her composure during their trip to Nigeria indicated that she was determined to go all the way.

The modelling competition were held in Lagos and the two stayed at a 5 Star Lagos Oriental Hotel, for eight unforgettable days

“The competitions were stiff however, Dillish managed to shrug off competitions from other tots to win, in addition they had funny moments as they played games as contestants and had a pyjmas party which they enjoyed very well boosting their self confidence.

” During the competition for some reason I was now calm, after seeing her compete l knew my daughter would make it and the results were fair, at some point people should learn to accept what is there.

” We met a lot of amazing people in Nigeria l must say and some we are still communicating with.

” At the moment Dillish has no Personal Manager, we will see as time goes on since she is still a minor it’s something l must not rush into, but to give it time,” said the soft spoken Chisangowerotah.

Upon their return from Nigeria Dillish and her mother were welcomed back by Denzel Soka a Guitarist singing Shaina by Alexio Kawara and Dillish’s aunties at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport.
