Mr. Cavendish University 2018/2019, Okorji Richard Chimezu is registering success in the fashion world.

The very first Mr. Cavendish, is a renowned model who started this way back in 2014 in Ghana, a year before he relocated to Uganda for education.

Chimezu has walked most of the biggest shows in Uganda like ASFAs (Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards), and recently walked in the Uganda International Week that went down at Serena Hotel on Sunday August, 4.

He has been nominated for Mr. Africa United (South Africa), Face of Africa and Most Influential Youth (Nigeria) which is expected to go down by October this year.

Chimezu says he isn’t a token type and does modeling to inspire people which at the same time has opened bright doors for him. He spent two years in Uganda minus modelling but thereafter fashion agencies liked his work and took him up.

He holds a degree in Biochemistry, degree in Telecommunications engineering and is to start on a Masters Degree in Business Administration as of August, 2019.
Away from Mr. Cavendish, Chimezu is a marketer and handles social media. He also plays instruments particularly keyboard in Redeemed Church of God, Mbuya where he prays too, regularly.
