      true talk! but why did all the girls stand with the hands behind them? such a timid look. and Anna should have worn her hair up, it would’ve highlighted her cheekbones better, not this low curly do!

    What’s with the hideous shoes? It’s like they are all wearing same shoes?

    Anyway, Ghana and maybe Botswana (though it’s a bit on the bridal side sha)

    • bnigerian

      October 2, 2013 at 6:50 pm

      I noticed the “akpola-ish” shoes too. I guess its to give them more height?

    Ghana, Guinea and Nigeria.

  20. bimpe

    October 2, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    No offence but Nigeria does look the ugliest, the dress isn’t a world class dress, looks life a prom dress you can get on the high street. We need a new Agbani mehn. I think when the commitee is looking for moss world class they should he using Agbani criteria. No offence but they want black beauty because we are African not a light skin girl that people could assume she’s bleaching

  21. Gorgeous

    October 2, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    All the dark skinned ladies are so striking, they overshadow the light skinned ones. WOW. Miss Gabon is small but also beautiful. Nice. True African beauties here. Na wah! Me go go stand for sun o. Ah ah

    October 2, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    Did they all buy their shoes from the same store? The platforms are too high and heavy for their gowns( most of them). Miss cote devoir looks fresh, Ghana not bad, miss Nigeria should have worn her hair up!

  32. Lecker

    October 2, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Miss Kenya’s outfit is a must have for me. unique! @kmt, I support u on this one, would have tot her outfit will have a touch of 9ja …just saying

    October 2, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    African girls in the top 10 Ghana, South Sudan and Cameroon got there for a reason, we can all see why. Miss South Sudan is statuesque. This girl is gonna have a wonderful modeling career, No doubt about it.
    My gabon is very cute, unfortunately she is short. The dresses looked promy.

    October 3, 2013 at 12:50 am

    they are mostly short and too curvey for the pagent…now i see why miss ghana got to the top position.theres probably enough light skin from the other continents,so if they are gonna pick an african,the person has to be “african” in the real sense,hence dark skin….#my observation

    October 3, 2013 at 6:56 am

    Many of the dresses are unimpressive for a world standard competition though Miss Nigera and South Sudans dresses were one of the best…Miss South Sudan is so flawless…what a doll..

    Naa Okailey Shooter is miss world Africa and second runner up miss world 2013, I’m happy for you girl! Is not easy to come this far. Miss Nigeria gown is beautiful but she should have worn her hair up. Miss Ghana, south Sudan, Nigeria, Angola and Ethiopia are my top five, they are stunning. Pls silver bird group sit up and stop being selfish, we can still win miss world again.

    Lovely ladies. Those complaining about dresses, height: it’s a beauty pageant and that’s how they roll. Runway modeling goes taller and superskinnier; Red carpet fashion may be more up-to-the-minute riskier; for pageants one they change up their winners – blonde this year, black next, and also they like a certain classic, not trendy, beauty. Our Anna Banner looks great. The South Sudan that y’all mentioned too. And others.

    Miss south Sudan face is gorgeous, these women have petite
    face, nice lips and eyes, and their skin is simply flawless. I just
    love it. Miss Ghana is very pretty. Miss Nigeria is ok, Agbani
    Darego will always be the most beautiful.

  60. Yep i said it, bite me

    October 10, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    Miss Cameroon Rocks, Miss Equitorial Guinea’s name sha… hmmm.

    Wow at South Sudan. She is the epitome of BEAUTY. Kilode, I can’t stop staring, I haven’t seen someone that dark in a while. Her skin is flawless, man. Her face is too pretty, her eyes and smile is simply beautiful. African women, please I’m begging you to stop the insecurity of having dark skin. Embrace who you are. Look at how this lady’s beauty stands out. Anyway, love all these gorgeous black beauties representing Africa, the way it should be. I was rooting for Ms Ghana, she’s stunning, her height, smile, body is perfect. I’m so disappointed in Ms Nigeria, they chose a random girl to represent. She’s cute but definitely not Miss world quality.
