So how has your career been like thus far, after winning CLEO’s Most Eligible Bachelor in 2015?

“Well for one, my social media followers sky-rocketed from 2.2k followers to about 4k and I’ve gotten more external job inquiries now as a model, talent, host, social media influencer etc. It has been a blast especially being able to attend events with celebrities who are now my close friends or working with them on a same campaign.”


Nigel on keeping it going in hard times

What keeps you going in hard times?

“Perseverance. Whenever I feel like there’s nothing left in the industry for me to remain, I remember a wise mentor of mine telling me that it will be really difficult to make a come-back in the industry whenever you take a break or leave. Hence, I don’t intend to go absent.”


Now, what’s next for you?

“I’ve always been trying to work my way to be a TV Host. Whether it may be for a travel documentary, food tasting or to cover for fashion shows. Do give me a holla!”
