    Hi Bella Naija, please correct these –
    1) The top 4 included Miss Osun, Miss Cross River, Miss Anambra, Miss Oyo and Miss Adamawa.

    I counted 5.

    2)Miss Oyo was the second runner up while Miss Cross River and Miss Jigawa had the same point from the judges making it a tie.

    Miss Jigawa wasn’t mentioned in the top 4 (or rather 5.)

    This is the worst pageant I have ever watched. Very poorly organized, below average looking contestants and awful host (Osas). Most of the girls answered off point and this girl is like one eyed man in the Land of the blind. For the first time, the mbgn pageant was so much better which is a new low for Miss Nigeria. I was really disappointed. The prize is fabulous though.

      Haha!! The horror. I was constantly asking myself : but didn’t they just rap up a pageant? I was confused. I thought “isn’t it thesame thing? Who is Pamela? Wasn’t it an Anambra girl that won? Lol.. Shhhit!!

      Miss Nigeria is a pageant that represents nigeria alone.. so the winner doesn’t go to any international pagents.. but Mbgn is the pageant where representatives go to miss world, and miss universe pageants… its very much like the difference between miss America and miss USA.. I hope tht answers your question

      Miss Nigeria started earlier and is the first well known beauty pageant in Nigeria(sometimes in the 50’s).For a long time the winners used to represent Nigeria in Miss World.Somewhere along the line,Silverbird came up with the Most beautiful girl in Nigeria(MBGN) sometimes in the 80’s and got the ticket to the Miss world etc.Miss Nigeria doesn’t encourage wearing of swimsuits etc.Notable winners of Miss Nigeria are Binta Sukai,Sylvia Edem etc…

      From what I remember, MBGN is run by the Silverbird group of companies, and is the only Nigerian pageant recognized by the Miss World and Miss Universe pageant. Miss Nigeria used to be owned and organized by a different body, Daily Times. Reps from this pageant cannot be entered into Miss World or Miss Universe.

    Wasn’t Ezinne Akudo crowned in 2013? Does it mean that there was no pageant in 2014?

    I think the only difference btw both pageants is sponsors/organisers and the winner of one reps Nigeria at miss world while the other reps at miss universe. Asides that, no difference, just ways of making all young ladies wanna starve miserably

    Congratulations to the winner though. Beautiful girls don’t really go for pageants anyway.

    Congrats girl, its a thing of joy. Whether anybody was shaking bumbum or not is nobody’s busy, and saying that very beautiful girls don’t really contest is somewhat true. Well done!

    To be honest, I didn’t know MBGN winner was the miss world participant until I was lookimg througj the contestant list. I don’t really watch any fashion show except ANTM. I was scrolling through the pictures at the miss world website but couldn’t find any of the Nigerian participant’s pic.
