Fitness coach and model Francisco Kampila is the reigning Mr Zimbabwe International after he was crowned at an event which took place on 30 April at Open Eye Studio in Bulawayo.

To add cherry on top of the cake, Kampila also won the People’s Choice accolade.

Ten models coming from different cities in Zimbabwe including Bulawayo, Victoria Falls, Harare and Kadoma made a runway walk at the event.

Apart from Kampila having the crown on his head, Roland Mzamba from Victoria Falls and Charlie James from Kadoma, were crowned as the first and second runner-ups, respectively.

Trevor Nhidza won Best Personality while Wonderful Sibanda scooped Best Project award.

The king, Kampila is now tasked with the privilege of representing the country in Nigeria from 19 to 29 September at the Man of Earth pageant.

The down to earth persona who used to be a model on advertisements, said it was his first time to participate in a professional pageant.

“This year, Mr Zimbabwe International was looking for a group of confident young men who are willing to dominate the modelling and fashion industry. I believe I had it all that was part of their requirements and took on the challenge.

“Ten models contested for the crown and me emerging as Mr Zimbabwe International was some sort of dream because it was my first time to participate on a professional level.

“I used to be a model for adverts but on this particular gig, I decided to give myself a try on a new field in the industry and with God, I made it. Confidence and being a goal getter paid off for me at the end and I am proud of that,” said Kampila.

The dreadlocked model who is also an author said the status of being Mr Zimbabwe International had brought him humility.

“It’s humbling and fulfilling to be recognised as Mr Zimbabwe International. I will be representing the country in Nigeria in September for Man of Earth pageant and I am confident I will make Zimbabwe proud.

“The status I hold right now is challenging and I am tasked to stand for the recognition of the boy child in our society. I also have to engage actively with other communities as well as taking a lead role in educating the masses on environmental issues,” said Kampila.
