First African playmate of the year Ida Ljungqvist

2009 playmate of the year Ida Ljungqvist has become the first African to dawn the title, and from the pic up top...Playboy certainly knows what's up!

Ida was born in Tanzania to a Tanzanian Mum and Swedish Popsie. She's also quite the globe trotter. Uganda, Kenya, Ethopia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Cambodia, Vietnam, France, Sweden are just some of the countries she's lived in. Most of this travelling was due to her Popsies line of work for UNICEF.

She earned a degree in fashion design and marketing, and she also speaks  English, Swedish, and Swahili. Wow...This is quite the intelectual playmate we have here!

  1. Miss Mixed African!!!!!!!!!!!May 16, 2009 at 4:38 PM

    She is beautiful!!!! But, I do not understand how she is classified as African... her dad is Swedish, so she is half African. Mixed people are beautiful but never get the credit of being BOTH of the races that made them that way!
