At the Miss Pride of Africa Beauty Pageant that was just concluded, Nigeria emerged as one of the top winners in the competition which was held in London, United Kingdom.
The Beauty Pageant took place on 26th November, 2022 and was organised to empower African women by providing a platform that would encourage them to further give an in-depth humanitarian service on the continent.
The competition had a number of African countries including Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, Rwanda, Congo, Mayottee and Sierra Leone, with representative beauty queen aspirants.
Nigeria’s Akerejola Itiafa was one of the top 3 winners after a total of 17 candidates contested for the ultimate crown and several stages of assessment.
Itiafa said that: “As Queen, my charitable campaign would be focused on promoting financial literacy in Africa, especially for low-income enterprising women, women with small business”, as she spoke on her plans for the crown.
Asides from being crowned the People’s Queen, she also earned other awards such as second princess, an ambassador of the pageant and the award of the best swimwear.
During the contest, her incredible manifesto was targeted at increasing financial literacy among low-income enterprising women in Nigeria and also, she showcased the multi-faceted aspects of the Nigerian culture through food and various cultural attires.
The newly crowned Miss Pride of Africa Beauty is a proud Nigerian from Ogori-Magongo in Kogi state. She is a graduate of the University of Lincoln with a B.A. in Business Marketing and Masters Degree holder in International Trade, Strategy and Operations from the University of Warwick.
