What was running through your mind while the judges were calling out the runner ups and your name wasn’t mentioned?
You know we were six left in the competition at that time. The judges started from the third runner up and when she got to the first runner up and I wasn’t among them, I was really scared. I thought I wouldn’t be called anymore. I thought I had failed. I was turning up these thoughts and numerous other ones when my name was called as the winner of MBG in LASU. It came really sudden. I saw my friends shouting, clapping and laughing. That was when I began to feel joy in my heart. I became excited. I didn’t expect it.
Why didn’t you expect it?
Looking back now, during our training sessions in the camp, I saw other girls who were really good looking and better than me. I could only hope for the best with those great girls around me. The worst I told myself is that I will end up as a runner up or something. So, all through the camp session, I was calm and cool. I had already sealed my fate. I didn’t struggle much. I did everything we were asked to do. I followed the steps and the instructions we were given in the camp. God just allowed it to happen, I believe.
Did you ever think you will be a queen one day?
I was never interested in beauty pageants or runway. I love fashion, but not pageantry or modelling.
How was your training experience?
I wasn’t enthusiastic about it. I was just calm and cool. I walked well, but not with high heels. We were trained on how to walk with heels and other things. It was really stressful. We stood for hours on our heels. I kept training on my pose and catwalk even until the morning of the pageant.
What did you win?
I was given a car, a BlackBerry phone, two months training with a modelling academy and two years spa.
What was your dream career before now?
I have always wanted to be a woman with substance. I am a currently a student of History and International Studies. It has always been my dream to be an ambassador or something of the sort.
Do you think with your current status, you can fulfil your dreams?
These days, anywhere I go, I hear people saying, “This is the girl?” People are talking about me everywhere. That is a major responsibility. I think I have a greater opportunity into modelling proper. I will try other competitions until I attain a top-notch position in the industry.
Are you taking modelling as a career?
Yes. I don’t mind going into it full time.
Is it because of the excitements and the fame?
No. It is simply evident that I might have a shot at it. I mean for me to have won the MBG in LASU in a highly competitive contest points to the fact that this is a venture I could continue in.
What was growing up like?
My growing was not very special. I wasn’t born with the proverbial silver spoon. I grew up in a normal family. I was not allowed to go out though. I was always in the house. My parents would not allow me to go for any event. In fact, I could never conceive the idea of going, not even participating, in a beauty pageant. My father was strongly against things like that. So, when I decided to go for this one, I didn’t tell him, only mum was aware. It was later, when I had won that he was informed. I knew he wouldn’t have allowed me.
My sister did. My sister is my roommate in school. She started it and my friends joined those who pushed me into the contest. I don’t know what they saw.
Why do you think the judges gave you the crown?
I don’t know really. But I guess I did my part well. For the training we had, I made sure I completed my part well and on time. I think I have a great smile. I was able to manage the stage well. I answered my questions perfectly and I walked well.
Do you think that the judges chose the right person?
Yes. People were asking me after the event if I did something to win any favours from the organisers. I didn’t do anything. I didn’t lobby for anything. Like I said, the judges knew why they chose me. But I have been able to tell you what I think.
Usually queens embark on community development projects. Have you thought of any project?
Yes. I have been discussing with the organisers of the event on how to embark on a campaign against indecency. Looking at Lagos State in general, civilisation has eaten deep into the fabric of our culture. I would like to talk to the young people, especially secondary school girls around Lagos, about the danger of indecent behaviours in general.
How do you mean exactly?
Indecency is a general term for all acts that the society frowns upon. And most times, young girls fall prey to influences from outside our culture. I want to concentrate on girls, secondary school girls because they are still bendable. I want to talk to secondary schools around Lagos, meet with girls, create a fun atmosphere where we could talk about the importance of dressing and character becoming of a lady. You know, the way to talk and respond to people tell a lot about who you are and who you will be. I am going to be talking to them about good manners, approach and dressing.
Will you be able to cover the secondary schools in Lagos in just a year?
No. I would probably pick one or two secondary schools in every local government for the project.
Are there people backing you on this?
Well, yes. I will be working with the organisers of the MGBLASU. And I believe we will get more hands to support us on this project.
How do you interpret your position as a queen?
I believe that the major quality of a queen should be grace and humility. I stand to remain humble. As a queen, you will get to meet many people, those who want to get attached to you, those who sincerely appreciate you, all kinds of people. It is grace and humility that a queen could manage these circumstances. I think I can manage any challenges that may come my way.
