Some weeks ago I informed you guys that Collete Nwadike will be representing Nigeria at the Exquisite Face Of The Universe beauty pageant.
In the keenly contested competition held Wednesday night 9 December in Sao Tome & Principe, Collete made history as the first ever black queen to take the crown.
She beat Miss Germany who was the first runner-up; Miss Angola was the second runner-up; Miss Aruba was the third runner-up and the host country participant, Miss Sao Tome & Principe was the fourth runner-up.
Nwadike succeeds Susan Castano from Dominican Republic.
Nwadike, who had earlier won the award for “Best Evening Gown”, put up a stellar performance to outshine other gorgeous contestants from various countries of the world.
“It’s like a dream come true. I’ve always dreamed of winning an international pageant and here I am, living my dream. I thank God for making this possible. I thank my ever supportive family,” elated Nwadike said.
The new Universe beauty queen gave special thanks to her groomer/national director, Tomi Lydia Salami, whom she said left nothing to chance in preparing her for this pageant.
Also she thanked Rikaoto and BiBiyonce, her custome designer.
She also commended the officials of the Nigerian Embassy to Sao Tome & Principe and the Nigerian Community in Sao Tome.
Collete will spend her reign promoting charitable causes, tourism and goodwill around the world with special focus on Africa.
