Step closer gentlemen. But tread carefully. Miss April Nikki du Plessis is a South African woman through and through. She’s adventurous and admits to being a bit of a “wild child” but she’s warm-hearted and loves a little romance too. She says she was a tomboy until the age of 13 but “I’m proud of that because it made me tough and gave me the guts to be a go-getter.” And go get ‘em she has. Guest photographer Danny Steyn (also a South African) says he’s been a pro glamour photographer for more than 30 years and Nikki is “one of those who stands out from the rest.” We’re delighted to have her join the PLAYBOY South Africa family and watch her star rise.
