THE FIFTH annual crowning of the Miss Nigeria UK cultural pageant saw 14 finalists from around the UK competing to become the next Queen – but it was Temi Soyinka’s name on everyone’s lips at the end of the evening.


This year’s grand finale was held in St Mary’s Venue, Marylebone, London and was yet another success within the Nigerian Community in the UK.

The ceremony was opened in its traditional style of an introduction dance from the contestants and the playing of the Nigerian national anthem by excellent saxophone player Saxangel.

Miss Soyinka will be carrying the officialMiss Nigeria UK title for 2018/2019 campaign and will see her working alongside many organisations that aim to support and enrich the Nigerian culture, and with the prize of flight tickets, provided by Royal Air Maroc, she will also be working with organisations within Nigeria itself.

Second place was secured by Adedoyin George, who was also awarded a ticket to join Temi in Nigeria, with third place going to Olamide Oni, who won hearts with her infectious personality.
