“I am very happy to have won, even when I wasn’t so sure about winning.
I feel great being the winner of Face of Candy City even when this is my first attempt.
This pageant is one of the most decent pageants I have participated in as most of them are tied around negativities. I am glad to be associated with a pageantry such as this and I hope that people begin to change the way they think about competitions like this,” excited Efele said.
While expressing satisfaction over the success of the competition, the CEO of Candy City Entertainment, Ofoma Divine said thought the journey so far has been tough, it is worth it all.
“I feel very good knowing that against all odds, it was a success.
At first, I got a call that my mum was rushed to the hospital, that alone broke me down and a text message saying that one of our contestants was kidnapped in Benin but then I am grateful to God for his mercies; everything went smooth afterwards and we are able to accomplish our goal.”
