The Official Miss Nigeria UK cultural pageant is an annual event which takes place in commemoration of the rich and diverse Nigerian culture. 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 pageant encourages 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.
Miss Nigeria UK (originally Mr & Miss) 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.
