2017 MBGN Registration – Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, often abbreviated as MBGN – is a pageant organised by Silverbird Group with the main purpose of sending representatives to international competitions such as Miss World and Miss Universe.
Quite a number of people have been mailing us to get more information as regards the 2017 MBGN Registration and Beauty Pageant. For the benefit of al, we’ve decided to make this post and provide you with all the information we have at hand.
Senator Ben Murray-Bruce is the mastermind behind this pageant which started in 1983 as Miss Universe Nigeria. It gained widespread popularity after the name was changed to Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria in 1986, and its first winner was model Lynda Chuba.
Winners of the MBGN pageant are expected to represent Nigeria at Miss World, and until 2004 at other international pageants including Miss Universe. As with most pageants second-place winners are expected to replace the title-holder if they are unable to complete their reign.
Winners are expected to also adopt at least one platform (also known as ‘pet project’) during their reign – an issue which is of relevance to Nigeria. Once chosen, the winner (and occasionally other finalists) uses their status as Beauty Queen to address the general public about the pet project they chose. The most popular has been Sickle cell Awareness, but others have included Polio, Child labour, Education, and Widow Empowerment.
In 2007, Silverbird announced that the pageant would produce four more representatives apart from the winner. The original titles were Miss MBGN Universe (to represent at Miss Universe), MBGN Tourism (Miss Tourism International), and MBGN ECOWAS (Miss ECOWAS). A fifth title, MBGN Model, which allowed its holder to compete in modeling contests at international level, was dropped and replaced with MBGN Ambassador, with its winner performing ceremonial duties in the country.
Screening exercises popularly referred to ‘auditions’ are held nationwide to select contestants for the MBGN Pageant, and successful contestants will be coached on etiquette and stage presence at the boot-camp before competing at the finale, where segments include Interview and Evening Gown, and Swimwear.
Prizes for the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria winner vary each year, but have always included cash; up to N3,000,000, and some winners have also received a car.
As no pageant was held in 2016, the current Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria title-holder is still Psychology student Unoaku Anyadike who represented Anambra in 2015.
