new queen would be crowned during the 30th anniversary of MBGN taking place at Eko Hotels & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

besides, God blessed me with good skin. And for me eating right simply
means eating when you are supposed to eat. I do lots of fruits,
vegetables, water, less carbs and stuffs like that.
international pageants, Miss World and Miss Universe this year was a
mind blowing experience, most especially, Miss Universe in The
Philippines. I must confess they were both memorable experiences that
will linger for a long time and I will never trade them for anything. I
wouldn’t have had these experiences but for MBGN. MBGN gave me the
platform to travel far and wide and make my country proud. And also,
being able to help people is one experience I have enjoyed greatly. I am
talking about the less privileged among us, and of course, my pet
project, which was endometriosis. Creating awareness for the condition
was quite fulfilling for me.
endometriosis and it was tough for me. I had some experiences and it
became a cause very dear to my heart, so I decided to
create awareness about it, because a lot of people do not know about

leaders, and not just in Nigeria but also across the world. I would
always cherish those moments. I learnt that life is about meeting
people, traveling, networking and building bridges so that we could have
good and lasting relationships with people.

two-year reign as MBGN. I got two years instead of a year, so I guess
God loves me. I was privileged.
out. Maybe now that I am about to handover to another queen, as my reign
finally comes to an end, I might feel sad because I will be missing the
platform. However, I have not really had any saddest moment as such.
Silverbird (Group) has been good to me, taking care of me in every way
they can, and they are still doing that, and I am sure that is not going
to end even after I hand over. For now, it is a grill of mixed emotions
and I can’t wait to crown the new queen.
emotional because I have been queen for two years. Two years seemed like
forever. MBGN happens to be on September 15 and my birthday is
on September 16, so I’ll hand over on the eve of my birthday. It’s a
great way to start a new year.
with the Silverbird Group, the girls I met at Miss World and Miss
Universe, and every other person I met internationally. I am still in
touch with a lot of the girls I met including Miss India and Miss USA
among others. So, life is all about making lasting relationships with
different people and that is one thing I won’t trade for anything.
work, work and more work. That includes facing my career, building and
training myself and trying to become a better person and focusing on
things I hope to achieve with my life as an individual. MBGN was just
something I said ‘let me try and see how it goes’ and it was mind
blowing. It was not like I had been planning to be a queen forever.
MBGN just came along and I gave it a shot and I was lucky enough to win.
So now that it is winding up, life will still continue. I had to finish
school, do NYSC, which I have completed, and now I work with the
Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS); and I am looking to have my own
school and do my own show among a lot of other things.
no cure, so it is all about creating awareness. Endometriosis has an
awareness month; so we will still create awareness, hold walks in Abuja
and in every state of the federation. I partner Nordica Fertility Centre
and whenever they have events, they call me as endometriosis
ambassador. It is not really tasking, so I will continue to do it
alongside some other projects I have.
to go for MBGN, and whoever wins MBGN to just be herself. Be yourself;
don’t try to be me or any other person. Don’t try to be any other person
that went before you. Yes, these people can be your role models, but
please be yourself and enjoy the moment. Be cool and don’t get carried
away by what happens in our society nowadays. Just maintain your
and a bit more understanding. Before being queen, you were relating with
people but you can’t compare it to you being queen of a big country
like Nigeria, and everybody is looking up to you, to see the next move
you make or your next mistake or that good thing you do. So, that is the
difference. I have learnt to be more understanding and careful of
things I say and do, because people like to misinterpret things. What
you mean may not necessarily be what will be interpreted, so you have to
be careful of what you say and things you do. You are relating with
people and everybody is not going to be how you want them to be, so you
need to be smart, you need to know how to work with people, because if
you can work with people and you can build relationships and be more
understanding and patient, you will go far.

school and crèche, not just in Lagos but also all over Nigeria by God’s
grace. I also want to be a serial entrepreneur.

important. I have to be attracted to him though, its part of it. And you
have to be a hard and smart worker. I don’t like lazy men; you have to
be on your feet. You have to be loving and caring as well. I don’t
care about height. He could be short or tall and I don’t care about age,
but he must be attractive. However, what matters for me is what is
What is ugly to you may be handsome to me. I don’t think there is
anything like dating an ugly man. He might be ugly to you but he is
handsome to me. It is basically beauty from the inside; that is the most
important thing. If your inside is as beautiful and amazing, what is on
the outside is of no consequence, so it is your inside that matters.
am thankful for my family who has been my backbone and my fiends too who
have been very supportive. So, you see negative things and you just
laugh it off, because if people are not talking about you, then you are
nobody; you are not relevant. You see negative reports and you just
laugh and move on with your life.
