The Official Miss Nigeria UK (Formally Mr & Miss) cultural pageant is an annual event which takes place in commemoration of Nigeria’s Independence. A platform that aims to empower, enrich and edify the Nigerian culture in the UK and unite British born and raised Nigerians with their heritage. The three times sold-out event held in prestigious central London venues is a fantastic depiction of true West-African culture. An equal combination of education, beauty, business and entertainment has attracted the best familiar faces and reputable companies.
The cultural pageant will encourage contestants to embrace their heritage and learn what it means to truly represent their country. By encouraging the contestants to work together and build each other’s character we are showing them how to be successful and prosperous in their future plans. We want everyone who participates in the event to feel like they are walking away a winner.
Mr & Miss Nigeria UK was created by a young, London-born and raised Nigerian who wanted to learn more about her heritage and at the same time bring people together in a positive way. There was a gap in the market for Nigerian inspired events and she felt it was time to start with something she knew best. The event is run by a small team who self fund everything through working and fundraising.
Over the years to come we want the brand to continue to help our contestants grow and we also want to set up our own foundation which will see our winners work with under privileged children in Nigeria and across Africa, as well as supporting them with their entrepreneurial endeavours.
2018 sees a change in the format of the show with it now being ONLY women competing in the competition. We want to thank all the Nigerian Men that competed and won over the past few years but this decision has come after long deliberation.
Thank you to Royal Air Maroc
