The United States Embassy in Nigeria on Sunday congratulated Nigerian-American, Oluchi Madubuike for winning the 2021 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN).

Oluchi who competed as Ms. Abuja during the MBGN Pageant in September 2021, graduated with notable distinction in nursing from the University of Texas at Arlington. She also doubles as an ER & ICU nurse.

As the current MBGN queen and Miss World Nigeria, she will be representing Nigeria at this year’s Miss World competition, December 16, 2021 in Puerto Rico.

Oluchi who contested for the prestigious crown scaled through various processes and stages of one of the biggest and recognised pageant.

During the preliminaries of the pageant, various screenings took place, in which she stood up tall in the midst of hundreds of contestants.

Due to the Covid-19 precautionary measures, the first stage prompted organisers of the pageant, Silverbird Group to make the screening a virtual one, after many contestants registered.

The beautiful lady was able to prove she could contest for the crown after her presentation online caught the attention of the judges in the first stage and the second stage (the physical screening), which she made the list of 37 contestants.

The zeal she had to win also made her the favourite of the judges during the event proper at Eko Hotels. The same zeal made the judges select her among the last fifteen, five and two contestants, before she was voted the winner of MBGN 2021.
