Miss World 2016 Voting has Started! Here’s what Nigeria’s Rep Debbie Collins has been up to in the Past Week + How to Vote



The 2016 Miss World beauty pageant kicked off on the 26th of November and BN Beauty brought you the scoop on all the African queens (click here if you missed it) and now, we want to catch up with Nigeria’s rep, Debbie Collins.

Debbie was the 1st runner up in the 2015 MBGN competition and she represented Nigeria in the 2015 Miss Universe pageant but has gotten another unique opportunity to represent Nigeria at this year’s Miss World as the MBGN competition did not hold this year and the current queen, Unoaku Anyadike, will reign for two years.

Voting has started for the 2016 competition and we want all our BN readers to vote.

How to Vote: Download the Miss World app, on the AppStore and/or the play store and vote for Miss Nigeria.

The United States of America will be the home of Miss World 2016 and will host the Grand Final on Sunday 18th December!

Here’s what Debbie has been up to!

    I’m not against natural hair, but I think the color makes the hair look kinda razz. She should have gone for a more natural color. I don’t understand, couldn’t they have hired a stylist for her? The voting is never Nigeria’s problem any year, as Nigeria always enters top 25 in voting (mind you, the voting is for people’s choice award, it doesn’t add any mark in the competition, the winner of the voting goes into top 10 as the 11th person, and never advances from there). To be eligible to win miss world, a contestant must place high or win any of the 5 fasttracks; top model, beauty with a purpose, sports, talent and multimedia, and this is why no MBGN has placed in top 20 of miss world since 2004, not because they are lightskinned (Agbani is the darkest Miss world till date, even among the 6 black Miss worlds in history), or because they are ugly, or unintelligent, or because people don’t vote for them. MBGN need to restrategize next year, except they want to keep sending girls on vacation, instead of competition.

    A mixed race lady representing a country with the highest black population. Nigerians come in different skin colors(bleaching included) but more than majority are dark/brown skin with kinky textured hair. Agbani Darego won as a full Nigerian and dark skin beauty. The west is looking for a true representation of Africa.

      I don’t know about Debbie being mixed race, is it because she has two english names? I also have two english names and i am 100% Nigerian, just as “Goodluck Jonathan” is. It might also interest you to know that Miss England is half black, and oh, Miss France is a full black woman from Martinique. Welcome to the 21st century!

      I agree. I’m mixed race, so I’m not hating on her. Women representing African countries should be full Africans. I don’t see any mixed black European representing them. She’s not Nigerian but biracial. She’s pretty, lacks the “it” factor though.

      @ Seriously, …That’s rubbish and even more pathetic coming from a mixed race individual. Africa is a colorful continent and we are different colors…and if anyone who has African blood flowing in their veins have a right to claim their heritage. Do not be one of those who make people of mixed heritage suffer identity crisis.

      Bottom line, she actually looks good and stands out. She ha an awesome smile. She might not fit into their physical stereotype but she’s repping well.
