According to the brand Manager, Sukhm Pannu, it is our utmost pleasure to have been a major sponsor of the most highly rated pageant in and outside Nigeria and most importantly having our Ambassador emerge from the MBGN contestants in the person of Miss. Cynthia Afury representing Adamawa State.
We are conversant with and quite appreciative of the rigorous grooming and selection process these ladies have been exposed to, matching the international standard. This undoubtedly demonstrates that we have taken the best step in the right direction in settling for one of the beauty queens.

Speaking at the event, Guy Murray Bruce, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Tourism Development & Entertainment, Bayelsa State, who also doubles as a director, Silverbird group says the theme for this year’s pageant “Every Woman” encapsulates the true definition of the woman, who is a nurturer, care giver, working woman, wife, professional, the list is endless. The theme also lends its meaning towards the national fight against the increase in the statistics of girl child rape, girl child slavery, child trafficking and early girl child marriage.
I hereby seize this rare opportunity to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the Government of Bayelsa for their warmth and hospitality and special thanks to sponsors who have contributed in no small way to the success of this event such as Tolaram Group, owners of Lush Hair, Silverbird Group etc.
