This 2011  Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN) was largely boycotted by style editors from major newspapers and magazines, due to what they termed ‘attitude’ problem of the organizers.
Most style writers who spoke to blamed the organizers for non availability of invitation cards. Most of them said they were not invited.
A female reporter with an international media organization said ” We have tried in our little way in promoting the contest in the past. Many thanks to Amadi Ogbonaiya of Vanguard who made sure that press tags were readily available. But now, sorry, Silverbird did not even want to make the style people attend so as to block their loopholes”

    I congratulate Miss Nduka for the recent upliftment. However, I am shocked at the lies she circulate concerning her family background. Part of the requirements for winning MBGN is not coming from a rich family background. so why does she tell lies about her father in London (as I read from vanguard newspapers of 2nd July 2011) and her mother working with first bank? The poor parents are there in the village @ Isuofia and need help now that their daughter has been lifted up. If she goes on like this, she may meet her water loo. Let her be truthful now that she is a role model. Does she want to build her foundation on lies?
