Kaone Kario’s big break showed up in the form of a continent wide model search called Face of Africa.
She first came across the show, during the 'free to air' time on Africa's largest Pay TV, MNET.
It was at this moment, at the tender age of 9 when she declared that one day, 'I want to be a part of that!'
In 2005, almost a decade after her declaration, she was crowned Face of Africa (FOA) 2005 aired live at a star studded show, from Sun City, South Africa.
Winning the contest was a catalyst towards an intense love affair with television.
She was then romanced by the network into presenting and hosting the FOA [Face of Africa] show in Nigeria in 2009-2010, one of the biggest highlights of her life, aired live to over 8 million viewers, a confirmation that she belonged to the camera.
As an FOA scout, she travelled across the continent looking for the next Face Of Africa.
London was her first exposure to a global fashion market and this initial experience was tremendous, with her booking countless shows in 2007 London Fashion week.
In 2011, Kaone moved to New York City on a modelling contract with agency giant, Wilhelmina.
She is currently based in New York City and is continuing to carve out a name for herself in the Americas, while proudly flying the flag of her African heritage.
