Queen Varsity Afrika set for crown
The maiden edition of reality show Queen Varsity Afrika is set to hold its grand finale this Sunday, July 28.
Themed ‘The Search for Beauty Plus Brains,’ the 13-episode show’s 17 contestants are female undergraduates and new graduates from various African tertiary institutions, one of whom will be crowned Queen Varsity Africa this weekend.
Jasmine Ofoegbu, CEO of Pillars & Pride of Afrika, which is behind the show, said: “The sole aim of putting up a TV reality show such as Queen Varsity Afrika is to groom and empower the Nigerian and African female for the future, as whoever empowers a woman empowers a nation.
“As a result, we are focused more on getting the ‘varsity princesses’ mentored by notable persons from different fields of endeavour.”
The winner of the show will be awarded N1m and will be engaged in skill acquisition and empowerment seminars both within and outside Africa.
