NIKE OSINOWO TALS ON CROWNING A BEAUTY QUEEN WHO WOULD REIGN FOREVER

In a recent interview with PUNCH, the former beauty queen talks about why she left the Miss Nigeria Beauty Pageant franchise and the project she's currently working. Read excerpts from the interview below;
 
You are not done with pageants…
Currently, I am working on a huge project which is the Centenary Pageant. We want to find one lucky young lady who will be a visual living symbol of Nigeria’s amalgamation. She will be a representative of all things good and patriotic about Nigeria. She will reign for a hundred years and for the rest of her life. This pageant will take place every hundred years and it’s quite a phenomenon. We want someone who is versed in our culture and embodies everything Nigerian.

Looking back at all you have achieved, which gives you the greatest joy?
The satisfaction of knowing that I have made a difference really does. Let’s look at my last two projects, one of which is the Miss Nigeria project. Here was a brand that was shoved into the gutter. No one wanted to touch it but I picked it, cleaned it up, got first line sponsors involved and put it back on the pedestal that it belonged. I did that ahead of my contractual time which is three years. I achieved this in two years. When I have achieved what I have, I move on to the next project and let other people have a go.

If you did it so well and ahead of time, why was the franchise taken away from you?
I did not have to leave the pageant and it was not taken away. We signed an agreement from the beginning and my contract was three years. In three years, you can only do two pageants. My agreement expired that January.
