“Agbani Darego is my mentor, role model, whatever you want to call it. She is the only black woman to have won Miss World. I am really inspired by her. Today, she has carved a niche for herself. she is a brand; I believe in branding so much” she said, in a chat with Potpourri.
Speaking of her trip to Albania, the beauty queen enthused that she had a great time, meeting people.
“I met a lot of people from across the world speaking different languages. I met beautiful and nice people. Albania is a beauty to behold; it is such a serene place to be. We were in camp for 11 days. It was like a dream; I still don’t believe I was there and won Miss Bikini. We went around the city, all of us, 56 beautiful girls and we were only four black girls. I am glad I made my country proud.
“I am really grateful to BAIP and Mr. Opuene, the organiser of the event for this opportunity. BAIP has opened doors for me and they are empowering youths. Contesting was a mind-blowing experience and I am flattered that they considered me worthy of flying the Nigerian flag. I feel privileged. I want to thank Mr. Opuene for this lovely opportunity” she mused
