Queen Celestine, MBGN Miss Universe Unveils Boo [Photos]

Posted in: , , ,

Queen Celestine represented Nigeria at the recently concluded Miss Universe 2015 where she took home the Miss Congeniality statuette. She shared the picture above on her return to Nigeria from Florida, USA where the event held and I was intrigued by the ring on her finger.

Turns out there's a boo in the picture, probably her fiance. She shared photos of the two together on her Instagram page. It seems her boo is travelling because she captioned the images, "Safe trip boo. Will miss you." See the photos below...

As The Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria Pageant Premieres, A Case Against Beauty Contests

Posted in: , , , ,

By Etcetra

Every year, thousands of girls compete in various beauty pageants across Nigeria. While the organisers may believe that they are helping our girls to feel “beautiful,” they are also in many other ways causing significant damage to the self-esteem and body perception of other girls.

The girl who won may feel as beautiful as the prettiest woman ever created, but what about the girls who didn’t win? How do they feel?

I spoke with some past contestants of one of the pageants (the girls that didn’t win) and asked them why they think they didn’t win, and this is what some of them said:

“Because I wasn’t pretty enough,” “Because the organisers didn’t like me,” “Because it is a racket and who knows what she has offered,” etc.

Ujunwa Amanda Onwudilo was among the contestants for 2013 edition of Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN), representing Ebonyi State but she pulled out days before the competition for personal reasons.
