Ehiguese emerged as the new queen at the beauty pageant event held at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The journey to this year’s finale started in November when auditions were held in three cities of Abuja, Port Harcourt, and Lagos within over a one-week period. From personal photography sessions from Studio 24, using cool photo props, there were also monopoly games and passion project activities to keep the ladies entertained with refreshments.

The auditions started at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja on Nov. 7 with an impressive turnout of contestants from the Northern region who showed up for a chance to become the next queen.

The contestants were judged by George Okoro (Photographer and Lifestyle Magazine Publisher), Adama Indimi (CEO Reign by Adama Lashes), Ogugua Okonkwo (CEO Style Temple) and Andy Ogbechei (Creative Director, A-Squared Network).

They served as the guest judges at this phase of the auditions, accompanied by Enyinne Owunwanne (CEO, Times Multimedia – organisers of the Miss Nigeria pageant). The team moved to Port Harcourt on Nov. 9 to receive contestants from the South-South/South-East region at the Echelon Heights Hotel, before heading to Lagos where the audition was held at the Times Multimedia, Lagos Headquarters.

From there, the 37 semi-finalists were announced in a special Instagram Live Session, setting the stage for Thursday’s grand finale.

Rita Chinedu, the Delta state representative, emerged the first runner-up while Miss Ogun, Tolulope Ayanfalu Mary, was the second runner-up.

Anambra’s Chioma Stephanie Obiadi emerged victorious in the 40th edition of the pageant. The Miss Nigeria pageant is designed to showcase positive attributes of Nigerian women and award university scholarships.

The pageant promotes a wholesome girl-next-door image, combining vintage glamour with modern elegance.
