It’s going to be fun, and a display of panache and razzmatazz as Miss Africa Queen beauty pageant berths in Asaba, Delta State on October 7, 2009.
Conceived by Ghana-based XYZ, Miss Africa Queen, which aims to promote African culture and tourism including peace and harmony, will have beauty queens from all 52 countries on the continent catwalk the aisles of the prestigious venue in Asaba.
According to the organisers, the pageant plans to showcase African woman in her totality: her ebony black complexion, the firmness of her breasts, her rounded hips, her submissiveness and tolerance, which are not the characteristics of Western beauty pageants.
The winners at the national level would converge on the coal city of Enugu where they will be screened and tested. While the best queen would leave Enugu with a brand new KIA Rio, consolation prizes would be given to the other 36 delegates. They will later compete with other queens from Africa in Asaba.
However, the contestants would look forward to meeting the reigning Miss World University Nigeria (MWUN), Delphine Okobah whose presence as one of the judges would be a delight.
According to Delphine, her reign “is an eye opener because I have been able to meet so many people. For instance, my journey to Korea was a very good experience. I met many ladies from different countries, different cultures and background.”
