Queen of IBILE

Queen of Ibile

Our young women quite frequently aren’t an integral part of the affairs of this great State. The Queen of Ibile Pageant seeks to serve as a medium of unification in Lagos/Nigeria. The intent of this project is to involve the young women of Lagos in the affairs of the State and to empower them through a healthy competition on an annual basis. IBILE is a meaningful acronym.  It is comprised of the first letter from the names of the five administrative divisions of Lagos State- Ikorodu, Badagry, Ikeja, Lagos Island and Epe. This will instill a sense of pride and joy of ownership to residents of each division. Amongst other states, Lagos is renowned for its unique and spirited beauty.  It is recognized for fairness in its dealings, solidarity, and co-ordination.

The Queen of Ibile Pageant will allow contestants to participate in a pageant and reality television program that will showcase their knowledge about the State while promoting progress on infrastructure through the annual project theme. Awards will be given to individuals and government officials who have contributed significantly to the infrastructural developments of Lagos State.

Auditions will be contested to select 57 contestants that will represent all Local governments and LCDA in Lagos State.  

The top contestants will proceed to the camp for 2 weeks. Here they undergo series of activities such as talent showcase, workshop, costume showcase, sporting exhibitions, tourism, exploration and lots more. The contestants however will be shared into 5 groups with a celebrity mentor. The 5 group which will be named according to the acronym (IBILE)- the viewers are to start voting for their favorite from here on. The essence of these activities is to bolster their experience and knowledge. Over the period of camping, the appointed celebrity’s judges will be on hand to examine the contestants and award them marks based on their performance in each activity which will be aired live for viewers to follow the activities and vote their favorite.
