    so igbo people don’t live in Nassarawa again? what if she was born and raised in Nassarawa, she can’t represent where she lives? What if her momsie is from Nassarawa nko, is it then that you people will allow her?

    Omo the pic isnt doing the chic justice…I am assuming she is fine…

    who said a igbo girl can’t represent Nassarawa? But this same thing happened last year, almost every state was represented by an Igbo girl including Yoruba states like Oyo and Ogun. It’s just ridiculous. And honestly, if that is the most beautiful girl in Nigeria, then we all need to check ourselves.

    Thanks a lot. You hit the nail on the head. It’s time we stop all these indigene crap. I don’t know how the MBGN competition handles ethnic identities and stuff, but I think you hit on a problem in Nigeria where you always have to identify with your parent’s ethnic cultures instead of what you grew up with and are used to. I have many friends born and bred in lagos how see themselves as lagosians and will go on to contribute a lot towards the development of Lagos but that will never be able to take political office or do any such thing because their parents come from other parts of the country. It’s time we start seeing ethnic identities as something fluid. If you can change nationality why can’t you change ethnicity? And no one should even bring up the issue of blood and stuff because there is nothing like Nassarawa blood and Igbo blood. LIke all forms of identity, ethnicity is not stable and is definitely not God-ordained. It is not something you are born with it is something you become. So let anyone become whatever ethnicity they become.

    Long story swit. everyone has their opinion. Respect it. This is the internet.

    Her mum is probably not from Nasarawa (Onyi;s comment). The issue is that if all the contestants are from the same ethnicity, where is the diversity? More than half of the contestants are from the same category.

    I’m sure if I was Miss Anambra and people saw my hausa name, Ndi’ Igbo would probably go wild.

    Nationality is also not the same thing as Ethnicity. But if Nationality is the case, all the naturalized Chinese, lebanese and Indian Nigerians who even speak pidgin and native languages should contest.

    Oya, go figure your reactions to that….

    Just saying.

    I totally agree with Swit Pincher. Especially the points raised about political appointments. It’s so divisive.

  15. tatafo!

    April 8, 2009 at 7:12 am

    I read somewhere that the girls are assigned states if they make the cut. Obviously it seems like majority Igbo and Yoruba girls are the ones applying, maybe hausa girls are not being allowed to apply for the contests. It could also be the way it’s being advertised, in select cities or tv networks. SIlverbird or whoever the organizers are should look into why this is happening, don’t go blaming the igbo chic, nothing do her she just wants the crown and a chance to compete at Miss World 🙂

    I really dont get d idea of using the states…
    If you want to contest,just go 4 it and not use states that dont correspond with your name.
    She`s pretty tho.

  17. gbemi

    April 8, 2009 at 8:03 am

    i dont understand why they had to take it all the way to Owerri…..same way i dont think having AMAA in Bayelsa is a good idea…but oh well….but then again… u guys think this lady is striking enough to make an impact at miss world? Shes prettu no doubt…but what do u think?

  18. Originial Naija

    April 8, 2009 at 9:06 am

    WHat, owerri no good or bayelsa no good? Stop acting uncivilized. I dont know what the big fuss about as long as its held within the boundaries of nigeria.. There are other cities in Nigeria besides Lagos u know ..ekpa

    i missed the MBGN, was at the AMMA, where kenyans and egyptians dominated the night. Waiting to see the pictures tho’ hey whats going on about ethnicity and all that?

  21. randommer

    April 8, 2009 at 8:34 pm

    um hello how can you change your ethnicity? ethnicity here is not the same as states – which are artifically created, nassarawa is not equivalent to igbo. so how is an ethnically indian person going to now be ethnically igbo? of course an indian person can be naija – born and raised, but they will always be ethnically indian even if they aren’t by citizenship. ps. i know india has lots of ethnic groups, but i hope you get my bigger point.

    as for the whole indigenous thing, that is nigerian law and i agree it has its faults but in general i agree with it.

    lastly, please research on the meaning of ethnicity – thanks lol.

    April 8, 2009 at 9:30 pm

    my dear, d whole point of using states is to show dat it is a national contest. Only 30 states wher represented dis year. I’m guessin d sharia states opted out. If only girls from all of nigeria would go for d auditions, igbo girls wouldnt keep winnin. Judgin by your name, ur either a northener, a muslim or both? Would YOU contest? Dat is the problem wit nigerians, we like complainin but we do nothin about it. I dont mean you Farida oh!x

  23. nu-nu

    April 8, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    sweetie, pls next time go and audition and lets see who will oppose. But till den, lets all chill! And FYI, ther was a year d representative at miss world for south africa was white. So if a naturalized chinese passes d judges’ criteria ther is nothin wrong wit it. Its lik white people in america sayin black people cant represent dem at miss world. And for all d other people complainin, this just means glory is the most beautiful girl among al d girls dat auditioned and contested, so no need to get your panties in a bunch! If any of you think you can do better pls go ahead. She is very well spoken, i watched d broadcast.

    awww shucks! Posted dis wrong. Was tryna reply LADI’s comment. No harm TATAFO (who i totally agree wit by d way :-))

  25. Ladi

    I just wondered why there was no diversity amongst the contestants, I guess its ‘Sharia’ but shouldn’t those states just be omitted. I watched the chic that represented my state a few years back and I was just offended/ annoyed with the representation….. Its like introducing myself as Miss Anambra with a strong Hausa-Fulani accent while reflecting no element of Igbo culture.

    p.s. I love Igbo people biko, If I had to criticise, MBGN should just be more representative of the country (same argument I make with WANTM not having all Nigerian models which fortunately, it’s not doing).

    I’m igbo but…….. those chicks no try at all, it was like all the fine girls refused to come out to contest so the organizers had to make do with who was available.

  27. Mma

    April 10, 2009 at 6:49 pm

    Wait “Chukwu”?!.Definitely igbo claimin nasarawa.Dont dig d whole mostly igbo thing thou,there just need to be diversity.

    April 11, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    wait oo have you guys even paused and maybe pondered that since she’s a youth coper she might well be representing the state she’s serving.

    All in all, the girl is wugly!!!
    no beautiful girls in nigeria anymore,, too bad…

  34. Love

    April 14, 2009 at 1:46 am

    Ok, I almost never write this sort of response, and I don’t really care much for who wins what and where but a few things mentioned here I do wish to address…
    First about location, what is it they say about keeping your dirty laundry away from the public, if u are too ignorant to realize that other states in Nigeria other than Lagos and Abuja have equal right to host such national event, then u are no different from most American’s that are ignorant to the world around them and if u do pay attention to the news, u will recall that such ignorance can be dangerous (sept. 11)…

    The more delicate matter I wish to speak on is this idea of indigene, it breaks my heart that my generation (20-30years of age) are buying into this idea that has been used to divide Nigeria for so long, making Nigeria defenseless to international terror and exploitations.
    My mother taught in Enugu state for 16years and when Enugu became a state of it’s own in 1991 (thanks to Babangida and his crew), my mother (now in line for the principal position) and other teacher from other States, were sent packing without dime of the Salary they were owed for the past 4years, this of course forced my mother to relocate to United States. But u have to wonder what about those that didn’t have that opportunity?
    What difference does this lady’s ethnicity make if she is a resident of Nassarawa State? Why do we ignore the problems we have and focus on irrelevant arguments? Is Nassarawa not a state in Nigeria, Is she not Nigerian then someone pls tell me why her ethnicity and last name are overshadowing her achievement?
    We so much want to copy Americans, but we seem to only succeed in doing that with defiled things but when it comes to things that will enhance us as a people, we are quick to retreat to our “cultural and traditional ideologies”.
    For those of u aware of American politics, think back and u will recall that Hillary Clinton was born in Illinois, married to bill who is from Arkansas but went on to be the senator of the State of New York for 8years.
    I realize that we all have our opinions, but can I make a plea to my people, lets leave primitive thinking behind and meet the rest of the world in advanced level!!!
    Stay blessed!

    For those of you who are against the crowning of this young lady as the most beautiful girl in Nigeria, I want you all to know that beauty is not just physical appearance. The individual’s intellect is part and parcel of beauty

    I know for certain she is from Anambra state and has never been anywhere near talk more of living in Nassarawa. I think dey distribute girls from states that av many applicants to states with few applicants.
