After years of tenacity in the modelling industry, a young model, Jordan Oguntayo, finally receives the credit he deserves by being included in the Forbes 30 under 30 list.

The eighth edition of Forbes’ annual Under 30 Europe list was just published. The exclusive list honours young founders, leaders, and entrepreneurs who make an impression and bring about change in Europe for their outstanding accomplishments. 

Youngest in the Forbes list

Jordan Oguntayo astounds the audience with his presence in the Arts & Culture section, despite the fact that the average age of participants and selected finalists in Forbes 30 under 30 is around 27 years old.  According to Forbes, he is the youngest person on the Forbes list, where most of the competitors are older than 25 years.   

Since he was seven years old, this young model has worked hard to advance in his profession and achieve his goal of being the most booked. Although this might seem impossible, Jordan went above and beyond to make it a reality.  

The now 14-year-old child has worked with a wide variety of well-known brands and is no newcomer to the industry. Brands like Dior, Moncler, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Primark are among those in his portfolio. 

Since 2018, this Nigerian child model has also been one of the brand’s notable faces, and he is working to build his name in the business. He has had, to put it mildly, adventurous years in the business.  

Jordan’s recent travels in cities like Berlin, Budapest, Coruna, Barcelona, Amsterdam, and Sophia also propelled his career. His tenacity attracted more brands, including Harrods, Ted Baker, Massimo Dutti, Next, and Milk Magazine.
