With The Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria pageant around the corner, I guess it's a good time to reminisce about that time our Former Miss MBGN took the Miss World crown, on the 16th of November 2001.
When I saw the question asked on BN I was immediately thrown into an excitable state. Because I remember that night like it was yesterday.
Let me tell you about it. I was in boarding house in Queen's College. We were just entering SS3 and were just getting used to the power, being the most senior students in the school. What this meant was that we ruled the world and nobody told us what to do. So on that fateful night many of us SS3 gals flooded the dining hall upstairs and crowded around the tiny television, taking in each moment in bated breath, anxious and fearful all at once.
When Agbani was announced Queen I still remember the riotous hysteria. Our screams of excitement nearly brought down the building. I remember us screaming, jumping, crying, laughing, hugging each other. Agbani's victory was our victory and we wanted the world to hear our shouts.
That night, we all stayed up late and talked about each moment of that pageant, we all went to our dorm beds eventually, satiated.
So where were you, what were you doing on that day in 2011 when Agbani Darego became Miss World? Did you watch it? Can you remember what happened?
