Model of the Week: Adam Mahfudh

Place of Origin:
Copenhagen, Denmark

Ethnic Origin:
½ Danish ½ Tanzanian (Zanzibarian)


How discovered:
I was on a bus, on my way home on a cold January afternoon after a long day at school, severely tired, covered with two layers of clothes and a hideous beanie covering the half of my head. Looking a little homeless. A guy also on the bus approached me and asked me if I was a model. This guy happened to be head of the men’s division with Unique Models.

Favorite things:
A pencil and paper, my dogs, my friends, my family and sometimes my girlfriend.

Favorite music, band:
I listen to almost any kind of music but my favorites are hip hop, old school RNB, reggae, dancehall, blues and jazz.

Favorite movie, tv show:
Django Unchained and South Park

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
Designing, primarily clothes, furniture and stuff like that.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Spooning with my dogs, while watching Jersey Shore.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
My whole modeling career has in general been awesome. But my best experience so far would be my first runway show with Kobenhagen Fur and Astrid Andersen as designer.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
What’s not to like? – Come to Denmark and freeze your ass off, eat our traditional boring bread “rybrød”, while trying to pronounce our language… we have great parties tho’.

Favorite artist (any kind):
Jay-Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean and Joey Bada$

Place you would love to visit:
I have been a lot of places, but I haven’t ever visited The Big Apple. In fact it’s a dream of mine to visit New York.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
School, because I’m preparing for my finals, in which I will become a college graduate.

    gorgeous ethnic combo… love his profile shot!


    Yes. He has it.

  • Clone

    Didn’t expect him to be half Tanzanian. At first I thought he’s mixed with Asian. But anyway, very unique face.

  • Really great look. I like how youthful and soft featured his face is. this hair style is cool but i assume his management will be changing it to make him more versatile.

  • My nephew Adam ‘s father is from Zanzibar.We have African and Arab Blood! Zanzibar is Cosmopolitan.His father is my bother who married a Danish girl Birgitte.My son Wo is half English-is 18and looks very much like Adam ie The mixture with our family genes and European genes!–WELL DONE Adam–and he is also related to Kamil-Al-Hinai–the Omani Model!
