The show which was aired live by its organisers Silverbird also saw “Miss Lagos” Aramide Oluwatobi Lopez emerge Miss Universe and “Miss Sokoto” Valentina Ogbonnaya become Miss Ecowas.
While Nigerians are excited for her, some were dissatisfied with the organisation of the pageant:
Miss Imo is the #MBGN2018 winner. Queen.
Dear Governor Rochas Okorocha, you have a new project. Give us her statue at Assumpta Cathedral roundabout. 🙌🏽 pic.twitter.com/vUclWHH2li

The critics have their say:
Dear Ben Murray Bruce Sir, I want to report the organizers of The #MBGN2018. I have been watching this event closely for years. What is happening this year? The sound is bad, really bad and the world is watching!. The picture quality is also bad. Nothing is working as it should.

Even Iphone 1’s Camera is better than this SilverBird Camera. To worsen it the audio is faster than the video. SMH #MBGN2018
