Oluchi Onweagba Turns 40 Today
 
Oluchi Onweagba-Orlandi (born 1 August 1980) is a Nigerian model.

Early life
Onweagba grew up in the suburbs of Lagos, Nigeria, with her two brothers and sisters. She is the daughter of a civil servant father and mother who was a nurse.

Discovery
At seventeen, Onweagba was urged by a family friend to enter into the M-Net "Face of Africa" preliminary screening at the M-Net office in Victoria Island, Lagos. The agency groomed her to be one of Nigeria's entrants for the 1998 competition (now called the Nokia Face of Africa). This despite the fact that, growing up, she had maintained a relative ignorance towards fashion and modeling. With the support of her family and friends, she decided to compete in the inaugural edition of the Face of Africa in 1998. This was the first-ever continent-wide model competition, organized by the South African channel M-Net in collaboration with Elite Model Management. She won the competition

Personal life
Onweagba's first name comes from the Igbo language and means "God's Work".

In 2006, Onweagba married Italian fashion designer Luca Orlandi. They have two sons.
