The organizer of Mr Tourism Nigeria and Most Beautiful Face in Nigeria (MBFN) pageants, Zanzy Entertainment, has unveiled the finalists for this year’s edition of the highly anticipated pageant.
The unveiling was made on Monday, June 4th at a press briefing where they spoke extensively about the pageantry business and how far they have come.
Speaking about the event, the CEO of Zanzy Entertainment, Chuks Anusionwu, stated that the pageant, which is now in its 5th edition, came to life out of his desire to encourage young ladies to value themselves and to always appreciate themselves as beautiful not just physically, but in character and intellect.
He added that he seeks to elicit the support of members of society to, through his pageant, help groom young ladies and guide them towards playing active roles and contributing to society through pet projects.
Anusionwu also seized the opportunity to invite the public to the MBFN 2018 grand finale which will take place at The Bespoke Event Centre, Lekki, Lagos on to show up and support the 15 girls who will be showcasing their talents, physique, intellectual prowess and other values on stage.
Speaking about the pre-contest 10-day camp period, Zanzy Entertainment ambassador and Mr Tourism Nigeria 2017/2018 Charles Ighalo said it had been days of ensuring that the brand gives the ladies an educating and intriguing stay while receiving coaching from specialists. He added that live updates on camp activities and event information are available on the brand’s Instagram page @zanzyentertainment.
Also speaking about the event, Omotola Adesenye, Classic Makeup USA Head of Marketing stated that the makeup brand is excited to partner with the organizers to put up the event because it believes in the vision to appreciate and encourage the classic woman who is an embodiment of every virtuous quality.
“It’s not just about a beautiful face, but about someone who can portray a good image of the country. As is obvious, Nigeria does not have a good image so far, hence the contest is aimed at picking those who will help project it rightly”, she said.
Also present at the press conference was Oluwole Entia, Dominio Wines Manager who spoke on the brand’s partnership with the beauty pageant and support for the contestants and their pet projects.
This year’s edition of MBFN is themed “Beauty Gives Back” and will feature 15 contestants who will strive to impress the crowd and judges, and ultimately wear the crown.
