Miss Dolapo Makunjuola, the 2017 Miss Virginity.
Sixteen-year-old Miss Dolapo Makunjuola has won the 2017 Miss Virginity Beauty Pageant held on Friday at Surulere Local Government Secretariat in Lagos.
Miss Makunjuola was among the 37 contestants of the ninth edition of the prestigious Miss Virginity Beauty Pageant organised exclusively for virgins aged 16 years and above.
After a rigorous drilling by the three-man panel of judges, the SS2 student of Estgbam Montessori School, Mile 12 in Lagos, emerged top at the stiff competition which lasted for over six hours.
Adeyeye Marian, a 22 years old student, emerged the First Runner up while Oladeji Boluwatife, another secondary school student, got the position of Second Runner up.
Miss Makunjuola thanked the organisers of the pageant, saying that she is glad to identify with the virgins initiatives.
“I am very happy winning this Pageant. I thank everyone who is here and also the organisers, particularly, Princess Adediran Adunni who is the brain behind the success we had here today. Thanks all,” she said.
The beauty pageant was put together by The Virgins, a Non-Government Organisation (NGO) with focus on keeping and celebrating virgin girls in Nigeria.
Speaking shortly after the pageant, Founder and National Coordinator of the organisation, Princess Adediran, thanked all the dignitaries present at the occasion for their support and attendance.
She said that this is the ninth year of the celebration of virgins, explaining that it was to come up on the December 16, 2016 but was postponed to January 14, 2017 because of financial crunch.
The founder of The Virgins however, pointed out that if they get good sponsors with joint efforts from the public, parents, government, churches and international bodies the pageant would take a better shape.
With such support and awareness, Adediran said that mothers will be serious in making sure that their daughters remain virgins, at least within the very year each celebration is done.
Speaking further, Adediran advised well placed Nigerians to come out and support her initiative. She also advised young ladies to keep their virginity intact till they get married.
The pageant was well attended by parents, students, youths amongst others.
