Ikwuagu Wins Little Miss Nigeria Beauty Pageant


Nine-year-old Kelsea Mmesoma Ikwuagu from Abia State has emerged winner of the just-concluded little Miss Nigeria Beauty Page, Ikeja, Lagos, recently. She defeated 37 other smart girls from other states to clinch the coveted crown.
The first and second runners-up at the event show are Miss Menankiti Daniella representing Anambra State and Miss Mnena Ternenge representing Benue respectively.
Queen Abdulateef Titilope, who was one of the judges of the show described the contestants as very intelligent. She said: “All the contestants are very intelligent, as one of the judges, judging them was very difficult, but definitely, a winner must emerge in a contest. I plan to work with the little Miss Nigeria to help promote any pet project she comes up with”.
Speaking with newsmen shortly after being crowned, Mmesoma, who was described as prettier than Nicki Minaj expressed joy for her victory and thanked the audience for their participation. She, however, revealed her intention to work together with her predecessor, Queen Esther Lawal to carry out her duties of helping the less privileged children.
Queen Kelsea had her preparatory and nursery education at Lifeforte Junior Schools Ibadan, Oyo State. Currently, she attends Delphi International School, Ikota Villa, Lekki, Lagos State. She has maintained the representative of Delphic to all debating and quiz competitions as well as the winner of Maths Wizkid and Spell B competition in her category in the school since inception. She also represents her school in music competition on key board and saxophone.
Her exceptional brilliance has accorded her admissions to many high grade schools in and around Lagos, but for her tender age, those admissions were turned down. She has won numerous a wards for herself and the school among which are: Sterling Bank Award as Best Mathematics student in Delphi, 2018, Miss Lagos State Television (LTV) back to back, 2017 and 2018 etc.
Queen Kelsea Ikwuagu is already working on life changing project for the needy and less privileged known as “voice for the Voiceless” and will be leading the child street to school campaign across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
