Andrew Govender

Andrew is a young star in the making. From being an academic at heart to walking the ramps at major South African shows, Andrew has come along way in the modelling industry in SA. He matriculated from Glenvista High School in 2004 with six distinctions. He later went on to attain an Honours Degree in Actuarial Science from the University of the Witwatersrand. During this time he continued to pursue modelling and acting. 'I had started modelling from the age of sixteen; I thought it would be a great way to make extra money. I started booking work almost immediately.' He later went on to sign with SA’s largest modelling agency Heads Model Management. In 2010 he won the title of Mr. India SA. Later that year he took the title of first runner up in the Face of Markham competition. On 17 March 2012 at Silver Star Casino, Andrew won the title of Mr. South Africa 2012. The action filled crowning was produced and directed by the well known Mark West from CAP-events (also producer of Miss South Africa and Mr. World), choreographed by international choreographer Ivor Jones.
