At the end of what has been a very competitive screening process, 37 lucky girls have been selected to contest in this year's most beautiful girl in Nigeria pageant.

These girls will now proceed on a two week long camp session where there will get extensive training and grooming in choreography, cat-walking and comportment to prepare them for the main event

As you may have heard by now-this year, Africa’s most prestigious pageant has gotten a new home! 

Following successful hosting of past editions of the pageant in Lagos, Owerri , Benin, and Bayelsa, Cross River state-The Peoples Paradise has now won the rights to host the pageant on the 24th of October 2015 at the Calabar International Conference Center.

Silverbird productions has entered into a four year renewable deal with the government of Cross River to promote the state as a tourism destination using the established brand name of MBGN.

As part of the agreement, Silverbird productions will also be managing and producing The Miss Africa pageant; an initiative of the Cross River Government which holds in December 2015.
