A scandal is currently rocking the 2012 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN) pageant as controversies about the real age of the winner, Isabella Ayuk, has arose.
Some alleged that Isabella was over aged and not 26 she claimed to be. Someone also alleged that the younger sister of Isabella who was her classmate in secondary school is now 27 years old and that the organizers of the MBGN pageant favoured Isabella because she is dating Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, the Deputy Speaker House of Representatives, even as she also warms the bed of a big time businessman Henry Imasekha, a very close friend of James Ibori.
The source also said that Isabella was disqualified from contesting in the Miss World Pageant due to age factor which she lied about, thus the First Runner up Diamete Charles will now take her place and represent Nigeria.
Meanwhile, organizers of the MBGN pageant, the management of Silverbid has announced that First Runner up, Miss Diamete Charles will be representing Nigeria at the Miss World pageant holding in Mongolia, China in August, while the MBGN winner, Miss Isabella Ayuk will represent Nigeria at the Miss Universe. They said that Isabella will not be going to the Miss World pageant due her personal reasons.
