Team NOTV: So how serious is your music? I mean, have you got songs etc.
Anthony Erico: Yes I do have recorded tracks but that was some years ago, however I discovered that I couldn’t just jump into music and be successful without having a good voice, so I put that on hold, went to better my voice through numerous voice coaching and also joining the choir just to get better.
Team NOTV: So let’s talk about modelling. Why modelling?
Anthony Erico: For a long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a model, modelling is just an amazing aspect of living been able to pose and tell many stories from just a still picture.

Team NOTV: And is this your first pageant?
Anthony Erico: Yes it is.

Asides representing Nigeria in the international version
Anthony Erico: I intend to take the opportunity given to me by winning this competition to further expose myself and what I’m capable of to the world and also take modelling and pageantry to a greater level.
Because the problem in modelling and pageantry is that new comers and upcoming models barely have the opportunity to show themselves to the world, as organisations tend to always want to work with models that they are familiar with and not new coming models, this is a problem in modelling and pageantry that should be addressed and fixed.
Team NOTV: So what do you think of women taking over the World – Hillary Clinton most likely to win the US election, England has a female Prime minister
Anthony Erico: The truth is there’s nothing wrong with a woman been the prime minister of England, if someone sees something wrong with that, then that’s simply gender segregation it’s wrong, be it a man or a woman what the world needs is good governance and indisputable leadership that’s all.
It’s not the matter of a woman or man, all that is important is who can take the lead and make good change.
