It seems that this week is the beauty pageant week.
The Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant took place in Lagos last night.
Here is an exclusive look at the winner of the contest as well as the other contestants.
The winner is 19-year old Miss Imo – Munachi Nwankwo
Congrats to her!
Other winners include Miss Anire Afejuku (MBGN Model), Erica Ekundaye (MBGN ECOWAS), Sakana Dikko (MBGN Tourism), and Ebinabo-Potts Johnson (MBGN Universe).
Eyakunse Inyang (Cross River) as Miss Photogenic; Best Traditional Costume was presented to Titi Adelakun, who represented Lagos State. Jennifer Onose of Abuja got Miss Amity Award.
However, what appeared to many as the best award, apart from the one earned by the overall winner, was a million Naira cheque presented to Miss Goodness Udom of Akwa Ibom State by the management of La Casera.
