To contest at the 2013 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant, you can’t be more than 23 years old. For the first time since the pageant was created in the 80s, the age limit of contestants is now 23 years. (18-23) Before now it was 18-26.
The current queen Isabella Ayuk won the pageant last year at the age of 25…and the controversy over her real age was crazy. A lot of people said she was over 30. Plus the age limit for Miss World is 25, so the pageant organizers Silverbird Entertainment must have their reasons for reducing the age limit of contestants going forward.
