The Miss Africa beauty pageant is hosted by the Cross River State Government with a global theme #climatechange, It’s a pageant with a difference, that involves not just beauty but brains, poise and purpose.

In a bid to further spread the call for registrations that kicked off on the 1st of July, 2017 across all the regions in Africa, Queen Neurite Mendes, the reigning Miss Africa 2016/17 and the Miss Africa team have moved their campaign invasion to Lagos.

On Friday, 14th July, the Queen started her interview at the @thebeat999fm on the morning show with OAP Maria in an exciting session that was live on air at 10:00am.
