Miss World 2011 – Who is Our African Queen? Find Out! View Exclusive Photos & VideoPosted on Friday, November 4th, 2011 at 3:19 PM
On Sunday 6th November 2011, a beautiful young woman will be crowned as Miss World 2011.
Africa is well represented at this year’s pageant with beauty queens from all around the continent participating in the pageant which is being hosted in London this year.
Some of our pre-pegeant favourites such as Miss World Ethiopia 2011 Melkam Michael Endale were unable to participate in the pageant due to visa issues. On the other hand, we are happy that the rest of the beauty queens including MBGN World 2011 Sylvia Nduka made it to London.
So far, the ladies are enjoying the Miss World experience with trips to Cambridge University, a grand charity gala and various pre-finale competitions on their agenda.
So far, Miss Zimbabwe seems to be the leading African contestant as they have been shortlisted for multiple awards including the Beauty with a Purpose award, the Beach Beauty award and the Top Model award. Miss Ghana, Miss Botswana, Miss Uganda and Miss South Africa who also represented her country at the 2011 Miss Universe pageant have also done well so far as they have also been shortlisted for awards during the pre-finale activities.
We’ll find out the winner on Sunday!
Check out photos and videos of all our queens below.
