The Mr World 2016 competition is scheduled to hold in the UK on the 19th July 2016 and different eligible men from all over the world would battle for the coveted title of Mr World.
But before this competition which is designed to test the candidates in a variety of ways through a series of challenge events, interviews and a final stage show goes down, here are the contestants representing Africa.
