The Centenary Queen! Queen Ubah Releases New Photos to Mark her Birthday



IMG_1421As Nigeria marked a 100 years, a beautiful young woman was crowned as the first ever Centenary Beauty Queen pageant and now holds a position as the ‘Centenary Queen’, a position she will hold for the next 100 years.

Marking her birthday today, 25-year-old Queen Ubah has released lovely new photos – taken by Sunmisola Olorunnisola – to celebrate her day.

According to her PR team, ‘She chose the floral theme because, just like a flower, she is beautiful both in and out. Flowers also represent hope, growth and new beginnings. As her journey as the Centenary Queen of Nigeria has just begun, she hopes to touch lives and leave a positive impact on anyone she comes in contact with.’

See the photos below.

    for me it’s not about her age but her colour and flower concept.
    Is this lady full Nigerian without any iota of foreign blood in her blood line? If yes, then I doff my cap to am. Regardless, I would have thought that the panel would have selected a dark skinned (preferably black like charcoal) beauty. Because lets face it, when the world hears about Nigeria, we the most populous “[black] African country” in the WORLD! I’d be confused if I were a foreigner and was introduced to his “white woman” from Nigeria.

    Secondly, flowers kwa! hian. flowers? what has flowers got to do with our heritage? our economy? our identity? FLOWERS? I dare their PR team to tell us they selected these flowers from a bush in Kogi or Calabar or Ondo. I bet 10,000Naira that it was procured from some fancy english named business who IMPORTS foreign flowers.
    I don’t think they realise her platform is to promote our culture and our values. We are black and proud biko. promote us or step aside. Flowers. WTF?!
    But what do I know? I’m just an ordinary citizen.

    I am sorry when did Nigeria marked 100 years? On a more serious note; Nigeria needs to stop making every girl beauty queen. I don’t even think that America has so much categories of beauty queen. Besides, if this was such an honorable title; why was the budget soon low, I think Boko Haram even has a larger budget. Queen or whatever your name is, I think it is very sad that were first victim of the rubbish. As a 25 years, you still have the opportunity to get it together. First step, go and read your book. I think I will rest my pen now.

    Ola brown….permit me to direct this question to you on intelligence,
    If you read your ‘books’ well enough you would have known when Nigeria celebrated her 100th year centenary.
    Now for the queen…she is a very beautiful lady but her make up artist messed up things up. Happy birthday my dear!
