This pageant was unique in many ways. The country’s coordinator, Ms. Ibinabo Fiberesima maintained a hands-off policy with respect to the event. Hence, it wasn’t the typical “Naija pageant” usually devoid of transparency. It was on this note that my co-Judges: Goldie Harvey, Emeka Ossai and Mrs. Bunmi Durojaiye stuck to the transparency game. We judged the contestants based on: Carriage. Poise. Beauty of gown. Intelligence. Articulation, to mention but a few.
After all the rigours and tremors, Miss Chinenye Munachimso Uzoma emerged as Miss Earth Nigeria, 2011, while Miss Shirley Nwoha and Miss Nnenna Omego won 1st Runner-up and 2nd Runner-up respectively. The Official Designer for the pageant was Asandia Hogan, who made lovely 15 outfits for the contestants and 5 more outfits for the “last Five”. She also made a sublime colour-blocked asymmetrical dress for Ms. Fiberesima and a yellow dress for the compere, Bimbo Akintola.
It was a colourful night to remember!
