The 1st runner-up is the sweetly beautiful Celestine Queen,21 & 2nd runner-up is 18 years old Olive Sadiq with the beautiful low cut.
We heard it was a packed event and as usual started 2 hours behind schedule. The venue could only allow for 500 guests, so much so that even an ex-queen was 'gated' and wasn't allowed in, majorly because 2 sets of IV's were printed and some of those with the scroll like IV's weren't allowed in, while the IV card's printed by Daily Times allowed guests in without stress.
Some of the other former queens that attended were Helen Ajayi-Miss Nigeria 1979, Binta Sukai-Miss Nigeria 1990, Nwando Okwuosa-Miss Nigeria 2003, while the incredibly gorgeous Anita Iseghohi, MBGN 2004 also attended with her husband, Tom Iseghohi.
Some of the dignitaries that attended were the 1st lady of Ekiti State, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, Ms Sally Mbanefo, the DG of NTDC, Ex-International J.J Okocha, who was a judge, Ex-beauty queen in the 80's and now founder of Isis Model and owner of the NNSM competition, Mrs. Joan Okorodudu, talk show host & founder of EbonyLife Tv, Mo Abudu, Publisher of Genevieve Magazine, Betty Irabor, Hon. Abike Dabiri & her husband, Olumide & Dakore Akande, top Nigerian designer, Frank Osodi and many other guests.
