Former Nigerian beauty queen accuses pageant organisers of trying to prostitute her

14 January 2016, 10:21

Lagos – Cynthia Ugbah, the 2015 winner of the Queen Trust International, has taken to Instagram to announce her resignation and to throw some serious accusations at the organisers of the pageant.

In her explanation, Ugbah revealed that she received none of the prizes that were promised to her when she won the crown.

Ugbah also said that she was told that her role as winner mostly required her to make money for the organisation, sometimes through unsavoury means such as sleeping with high profile men and then giving the money from that transaction to the organization.

She claims she was suspended in August after she hosted a lavish 21st birthday party for misusing funds from the organisation but according to Ugbah she paid for the celebration with her own money.

Ugbah is the seventh winner of the Queen Trust International beauty pageant but allegedly, five of the seven winners have stepped down from their positions prematurely.

“They are rogues, thieves, fake and most of all broke. They need pretty girls to fetch them money and make them famous,” she wrote about the organisers.
