A cross section of Nigerians took to Twitter on Friday to express their dissatisfaction as popular search engine, Google tagged the former most beautiful girl in Nigeria as the “Ugliest Miss World”.
GWG recalls that Agbani Darego won the coveted crown of Miss World in 2001 after she took the crown from Priyanka Chopra of India.
She had prior to that won the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant in 2000.
It became surprising to many that despite these feats, she was still tagged as the ‘Ugliest Miss World’. Some Nigerians took to the micro-blogging platform to express their unhappiness.
GWG presents some of these views.
