Nnadi recently shared a picture of her taken when she was seven years old on her Facebook, which generated the controversy that she lied about her real age during the pageant.
Nnadi won Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria on July 18 at age 19.
The South Africa-based beauty queen, who won N3 million cash prize and a saloon car, will represent Nigeria at the Miss World beauty pageant holding in the UK later in the year.
