One of the questions is, why was Precious Okeke, the initial winner of the contest, which took place on Saturday, October 5, disqualified for simply not confirming that she had read and understood the terms and condition of the pageant while applying.

Questions such as how serious could such confirmation be that would necessitate dethroning a winner after she had gone through the hurdles of competing and winning, are currently begging for answers from pageant director Dele Onabowu.

With Ike’s appointment, Alexalyn Owuadey from Ghana becomes 1st runner up and Tara Davies the 2nd Runner up. Okeke was disqualified alongside her Malawian counterpart, Alexina Phiri.
