Gold Ezennaya is Face of Zikel International 2022
Gold Ezennaya has emerged winner of this year’s Face of Zikel Beauty contest.
She beat 20 other contestants, to win the top prize, held last Saturday at the Terra Kulture in Lagos.
Organised by Zikel Cosmetics International, a leading cosmetic brand, the event was an opportunity for aspiring models to achieve their dream.
Aside being the brand ambassador, and representing the brand locally and internationally, the new queen carted home millions of prices including a brand-new car, a luxury trip to Dubai, and one year supply of Zikel cosmetics amongst others.
10 other queens were also awarded different portfolios such as; Face of Zikel Tourism, and Universe amongst others. They were also named brand ambassadors in the coming year.
Speaking on the objective of the event, CEO of Zikel Cosmetics, Kelvin Ezike, said the idea is to empower young women with an interest in the beauty industry.
“It is about changing the narrative by engaging young girls to be self-reliant, while also erasing the negative perception about pageantry,” he said.
He noted that the girls were selected based on their looks, intelligence, confidence and charisma.
This year’s event also recognised and awarded some personalities including Nollywood actress Linda Osifo; Kingsley Okonkwo aka Kcee; and designer, Trish O, amongst others, who have contributed to the growth of the nation in various capacities
