Ojehonmon said Nigeria has lots of talents and creativity to show to the world.

“These models are young Nigerians who are displaying the beauty of Nigeria to the world.

“We want to use this platform to reach out to the world that the 9ja beauty model is capable of changing, preaching to the world that Nigeria is beautiful.

“These people have been neglected in the past forgetting that they can still be creative to help themselves and society,” she said.

“This beauty pageantry is not gender-based, this is the first edition that’s why they are all females between the age 15 to 29, males can also be part of this pageantry for the subsequent contest.

While expressing his view, the General Manager, 9ja beauty model, Mr Jeremiah Aluya said:” beauty pageantry or modeling is not all about coming on stage to show yourselves.

”It is more about what can be done as a male or female to help society because anyone that is impacting life is already a model,” he said.
