Bertini Heumegni is a surprisingly humble model, actor and designer who seems to have his head in the right place. Discovered in South Africa while working as a bouncer, he has gone on to become a highly sought-after model, personal trainer, designer and actor.
Born in Cameroon, he went to the University of Lagos and then moved to South Africa. He lived in South Africa for seven years before moving to New York where he realized he needed to do more than just model. He became a personal trainer. He was picked to be on America’s Next Top Model where he stood out because of his hazel-green eyes. Determined to bring his children to the U.S., he worked hard until he could afford to bring them over. His twins, Danielle Heumegni and Patrick Heumegni finally joined him ( something he touts as his proudest accomplishment), and are doing well in college.
Bertini Heumegni also designs underwear (the BH Collection), inspired by the underwear that he modeled for various designers. He also set up a production company, Camerlywood Productions, to produce films. His first film, ‘American Dream‘ featured Helene Faussart, of Les Nubians. To learn more about him, visit his website.
