The physical screening for the prestigious Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant (MBGN) has commenced today with 50 contestants and five renowned personalities as panelists at the Silverbird Galleria, Lagos.

On the list of panelists for the final physical screening are: popular Nollywood actor, Alex Ekubo, Nigerian pageant winner and actress, Anna Banner, former Miss West Africa, Dr. May Ikeora, Nigerian model and former Mr. Nigeria, Nelson Prince Enwerem, and pageant executive, Augusta Ufford.

The 50 contestants were selected after a week of virtual screening of hundreds of constants for the 2021 MBGN.

Meanwhile, the 50 contestants will eventually be trimmed down to 37 contestants, while other events will hold to eventually produce the next MBGN Queen.

According to the organisers, the recent screening had dwelled more on the personality of each of the contestants, their beliefs, vision and why they had thrown their caps in the ring for the prestigious event.
