Yes, you read that right. It might just be you.

Stunning, waving and throwing kisses to the cheering crowd as the World celebrates the emergence of a new queen, Miss Africa 2018.

What’s this about?

The prestigious and international brand, the Miss Africa Pageant, is an initiative of the Cross State Government to add value to the annual Christmas Festival/Carnival Calabar. This brand is geared towards promoting the annual theme of the Festival. The 1st and the 2nd Editions were themed around Climate Change in 2016 and Migration in 2017 respectively. The theme was used to promote eco-lifestyle and create awareness for the possible ways to mitigate the negative effects of climate change, making African communities more habitable as against Migration that may lead to desolation of our Motherland. It’s the amalgamation of beauty and brain.

The Third Edition is slated for the 27th of December 2018 at the Calabar International Convention Centre, Cross River State, Nigeria. It promises to host over 30 African Beauties and Brains across Africa with the Carnival theme; AFRICANISM, telling the true stories of Africa and Africans, promoting our cultural heritage and investment opportunities.

The contestants would be camped for 3weeks where they will be mentored, drilled and thought how to speak, walk the tall and work the talk respectively, becoming a voice and face of positive change across communities. The grand finale would crown the Third Miss Africa Queen that would lead other contestants in advocating for a greener and sustainable Africa that is habitable, reducing the need to migrate, reducing the negative effects climate change possess on our motherland by creating awareness on how to reduce, reuse and recycle non degradable waste products, and more importantly, promoting Africa Positively to the world at large.

The Miss Africa 2018 pageant will be hosted by His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Cross River State, Prof. Senator Ben Ayade.
