The search for Queen of Emerald Nigeria 2017 has been concluded on Sunday the 7th of May 2017. The Second edition tagged the “Beautydom” edition was designed to raise beauty queens to become Ambassadors, create awareness and champion the fight against Cervical Cancer in Nigeria.
This quest began with auditions of beautiful and intelligent ladies across 17 states nationwide of which 30 outstanding ladies emerged successful and qualified for camping.
The successful candidates arrived camp on the 3rd of May 2017 at DIAMOND VIEW HOTEL LEKKI, which lasted for 5 days and ended on the 7th of May 2017 after the grand finale. The camping process was a rigorous learning process for the contestants and a cross to stardom for the winners as most of the contestants confessed. They got to interact with one another, learn to cope and live with each other, tolerate, support and in the end loved each other despite their different backgrounds. The girls also learned new things trained in different ways and were enlightened by motivational speakers during the camping period, which was a process to remember and cherish for the rest of their lives.
