Oluchi Onweagba turns 33 today. The Nigerian model, who appeared in three SI Swimsuit editions, got her start at age 17 when she won the inaugural "Faces of Africa" contest. In this 2007 behind-the-scenes video, Oluchi is on location in Memphis where visits Graceland, rides in a convertible and dons a bikini at a crowded diner. There are few places more culturally different than Nigeria and Memphis, but Oluchi makes the transition like a pro. So on this Throwback Thursday, we pay homage to Oluchi Onweagba.
