Nigeria’s representative at Miss World 2017, Ugochi Ihueze, was crowned the Top Model for 2017, defeating other 117 contestants at the just concluded event.
Top Model is one of the prime contests of the pageant. It was instated in 2004 and is often considered a strong indicator for final results. Mostly the girl who wins the blue crown places in Top Model round. In fact 4 of the winners of Top Model title later won Miss World – China PR in 2007, Russia in 2008, Philippines in 2013 and Spain in 2015. Last year’s Top Model winner, Jing Kong of China was Top 11 in Miss World finals.
Will Ugochi Ihezue benefit from the Top Model win? She is really striking and definitely a contender for Miss World title. Nigeria is the only country to have produced a black African beauty who won Miss World.
Perhaps they can strengthen their record with Ugochi this year!
Show her some love.
