The Face of Nigeria is Nigeria’s first national beauty and style pageant. The three-in-one show bumper is a redefinition of beauty pageantry. The concept is deeply flavoured with Nigeria’s finest values, which is why the
programme parades a cultural content that reflects the new African thinking and approach to beauty pageant.
Our mission is parading annually the finest women and crown one of them as The Face of Nigeria.
Our target is to use the platform of the pageant to renew our hope, create a new face for our nation and rekindle our spirit and belief that although Nigeria is walking at the moment through the valleys of pains and discomfort, surely this moment shall pass away someday. We believe in collective struggle to guarantee that Nigeria’s future is that ‘period of time in which our affairs prosper, our friends are true and our happiness is assured’
The Face of Nigeria looks only at the good sides of our country. The Orange pageant enthrones an orange festivity of projecting Nigeria’s premium, promoting her lofty ideals, upholding those principles that bind the people together, celebrate before the world our vast beauties, potentials, friendship and brotherhood; and to advance change building hope for a new face of Nigeria.
