Bayelsa to host 2018 MBGN

After holding the 2013 and 2014 editions in Bayelsa State, plans have been concluded to hold this year's Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria in the state again.

For the ceremony, which will take place at the Doctor Gabriel Okara Cultural Center, Ovom Yenagoa, on September 21, 37 girls have been selected after nationwide screening exercises in Enugu, Port Harcourt, Abuja and Lagos.

Before the grand finale, the girls will now proceed on a two-week long camp session where they will get extensive training and grooming in choreography, cat-walking, poise and comportment to prepare them for the main event under the tutelage of seasoned Hollywood casting agent, Juliette Hagermann. 

Speaking on this year’s pageant tagged 'Girl Child Education,' the Bayelsa State Governor’s Special Adviser on Tourism Development and Entertainment, Guy Murray-Bruce, said the beauty pageant would offer an opportunity to popularise and promote the state’s tourism and cultural potentials.

A former Secretary to the Bayelsa State Government, Professor Steve Azaiki, who is the Chairman, Organising Committee of MBGN, stated that the year's edition would bring global attention to Bayelsa as well as the Niger Delta region of Nigeria.

"It will be a good opportunity for the state to show off its educational institutions, world-class medical facilities, and tourist attractions such as Oloibiri Oil Museum, Brass beautiful sea and its white sands," he added.

Also, the Commissioner for Tourism Development in Bayelsa State, Mrs. Ebiere Musah, disclosed that the government was poised to exploit the 2018 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant to showcase the state in a positive light.

While calling on more sponsors to tap into the pageant’s huge benefits and exposure, the Chairman of the MBGN's production team, Bola Salako, said the grand finale of the event would be air live on Silverbird Television Dream Network, IBAN partner stations and some satellite channels.

He added that fans from all parts of the world would also have the opportunity to watch the event online.
