MBGN started in 1986, debuting Lynda Chuba as the first winner of the title, and ever since, the event has only gotten better.
MBGN got the major breakthrough after Agbani Darego beat other contestants all over the world to claim the Miss World title in 2001, making a record of being the first native African to have ever won the title. Therefore, the contestants are not just competing to become The Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, but also as Nigeria’s representative at the Miss World contest.

The current title holder Ugochi Ihueze represented Nigeria at the Miss World 2017 where she made history as the top model of the competition. She has carried a successful reign so far and will be handing down the crown to a new winner today.
During the winner’s reign, she will be required to launch a pet project that is of relevance to the country, and tackle issues like sickle cell, polio, education, child labour and women empowerment.
