    the weave for Obioma is bad, they should have changed it. judging by the hair, this photo shoot was done right after the MBGN event. btw, is Sophie Gemal Lebanese or Lebanese/Nigerian?
    and Julliette please coach them very well. we need them polished for the Miss World and Miss Universe competition. i at least wanna make it to the top 10, 15 or whatever.

      I think d way it is, Sophie would be representing 9jeria at d ‘Miss Universe’ contest and then Sylvia at ‘Miss World’…(I might be wrong). Bt if it follows that procedure then I think I am glad Sophie did not win. Anyways, time will tell if that is what the organizers intended to do…

    Sophie Gemal is Gorgeous. The Obioma gurl is too young for all that FAKE HAIR.

    Abeg, i am a bit lost. What do they do after winning the crown besides showing up at events with in their gowns and crowns? Are there projects that the past winners have done?

    Well, unfortunately for Sylvia, you only have one chance to show the world what you have. She actually looks good on the cover and I’m sure she would improve in time. the weakest link on the cover was the Obioma babe…her weave-on just killed me!

    @tpop, the question was “What does being the MBGN mean to you”? The best answer she could give, amidst stutters was “It means ‘ellegan’, beauty…” and some other crap that I was just too pissed to take note of. It was a real sloppy pageant.

      No need to call it a sloppy pageant. The people that organised it tried their best to make it nice and just because you do not like it doesn’t mean you should be negative lol
