The Nigeria Mrs Universe World Pageant team is calling on all Nigerians in South Africa and around to come and root and hoot for their own contestant.

For the first time in history, Africa is hosting the Mrs Universe World Pageant: Durban is the host city and Nigeria is participating for the first time. The prestigious event holds from August 25 to September 3.

“We will be coming with the Mrs Nigeria Universe 2017 Queen to compete with other beautiful women from 83 countries and will love our community over there to come out to support her” – Anogwi Benedict.

Nigerians are known to be loyal supporters of their brand and have a knack for turning any event they have a representative in to their own.

The Nigerian community in South Africa has shown great support for Nigerian soccer teams and other Nigeria teams who have come to South Africa.

Benedict prays the same loyalty and support will be on display when Mrs Nigeria Universe Queen comes to compete in Durban.

Mrs Faith Ifeoma Ogaga is Mrs Nigeria Universe Queen 2017. She is set to put Nigeria in the international news one more time as she is ready to climb the world stage as Mrs Nigeria Universe.

Nigeria was once branded as a country with the most beautiful people when Miss Agbani Darego won the Miss World pageant in 2001 and now history is about to repeat itself but this time with a married woman.

The Mrs Universe pageant will be held in Durban until 2027. This comes after the former Mrs KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and 2016 Mrs Universe first runner-up, Tracey-Anne Aggett won over the International Mrs Universe organizing committee with her charitable projects and vision for the continent.
