Model material not rendering properly

Not sure if this is the right title for the topic, but here’s the problem anyway. I have two cylinder models in my scene, one is the basic primitive, the other is one I made myself to smooth out the rough edges the primitive has.
When I apply the material to both, the primitive renders it just fine, but the imported model does not. Any ideas?

EDIT: It seems my imported model won’t render any material I apply to it.

Fixed? Not sure how but…
