14-Year-Old Nigerian-British Model Jordan Oguntayo Named Forbes’ Youngest Under 30




Jordan Oguntayo, a 14-year-old Nigerian-British model, has been named Forbes’ youngest Under 30 honoree for 2023. Even though the average age of participants and selected finalists in the Forbes 30 under 30 is around 27 years old, Oguntayo astounded the audience with his presence in the Arts and Culture section.

As one of the most successful child models in the world, Oguntayo has already achieved a lot in his short career. He has modelled for high-profile brands like Nike and Adidas and was signed to the top modelling agency Storm Management when he was ten. He has also graced the pages of magazines such as British Vogue and L’Officiel USA, making him a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry.

Oguntayo’s inclusion in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list is a testament to his tenacity and dedication to his craft. According to Forbes, he is the youngest person on the list, and most competitors are older than 25 years [1].

This is not the first time a Nigerian has made it onto the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. Wale Lawal, a research and consulting professional, was named to the list in 2016. However, Oguntayo’s inclusion as the youngest honoree in the Forbes 30 Under 30 is remarkable.


Oguntayo’s success at such a young age inspires many young people who aspire to greatness in their chosen fields. His dedication and tenacity are a testament to the fact that age is just a number and that with hard work, anyone can achieve their dreams [2].
