The search for the 42nd Miss Nigeria has begun in earnest. The auditions are finally over and 18 out of over 1000 girls that auditioned have been chosen to get through to the next stage. These girls have been chosen from the 6 geo-political zones in Nigeria and the list would further be reduced to 12 for the grand finale. This would be done by votes on the Miss Nigeria Instagram page. Such votes will contribute to 50% of the final scores for the top 12 while the technical judging will make up the final 50%.
Voting ends on the 23rd of November while the winner would be crowned at the grand finale on the 25th of November at Eko Hotel and Suites Victoria Island, Lagos. To attend the event which is sponsored by Heritage Bank, contact 08059744300 for table bookings and ticket enquiries.
