NIGERIA SHOULD PRODUCE DARK-SKINNED QUEENS IF THEY WANT TO WIN MISS WORLD AGAIN.

Back in 2001, Miss Agbani Darego became the first Nigerian to win the Miss World pageant under the platform of the Most Beautiful in Nigeria..A Black beauty Queen who has gone ahead to be a successful Fashion Entrepreneur and a role model to many aspiring models across the world but she is not just the only beauty Queen who has such a personae..Infact, the dark-skinned beauties have been more luckier at getting the crown...
Chinenye Akinlade(formely Miss Ochuba) was the Most beautiful girl in Nigeria 2002...went further to make it to the Top 10 at the Miss World 2002 co hosted by Nigeria and UK in London..I am not sure if Nigeria has faired well since they started producing fair or should I say Yellow Queens and I am not here to disagree or deny the fact that the likes of Munachi Nwankwo, Adaeze Yobo or even the newly crowned Model, Iheoma Nnadi are not beautiful enough but they cannot overshadow the extremely white queens at the world stage...Lets face it, a dark-skinned queen will bring that needed attention to any judge especially If she is a dazzling beauty..Countries like Equitorial Guinea, Tanzania, Gabon, Seychelles, Cape Verde have produced dark-skinned queens as representatives of their country at this years pageant coming up in December and am sure they will stand out better than what Nigeria has produced.


Now, this is what I meant by standing out, Carranzar Naa Okailey Shooter represented Ghana at Miss World 2013 and she came out as the second runner up..How many of you are dark as this lady but yet she glowed at that stage..Seriously, as a black man, beauty is not about how fair you are and I guess that is why we are having so many cases of bleachers around our country today...Newly created country in 2011, South Sudan, made history by making it to the Top 7 of the Miss World 2012 pageant.
Atong Demach (Miss South Sudan 2012)
Bokang Montjane (Miss South Africa 2010, 5th Runner Up, Miss World 2011)
I actually did not have to do a laboratory test to prove my opinion but lets not pretend about the fact that black is beautiful and It stands out anywhere, any time..No offence to all the fair queens in Nigeria...
I stand by to see if Miss Iheoma Nnadi will prove me wrong at the Miss World pageant later this year and by the way, their height seems to be dropping off lately...
