‘The Pageant is a Fraud’- Miss Ideal Nigeria 2015 Calls Out Pageant Organisers
The outgoing Miss Ideal Nigeria, Sandra Osamor, is currently putting the organisers of the pageant on blast for failing to fulfill the terms of her winning the 2015 edition. The Guardian reports that the Covenant university graduate revealed she is yet to receive all the things she was promised by the Miss Ideal Nigeria organisers after she was crowned last year.
“The pageant is a fraud and it should be investigated. The organisers, House of Twitch, make promises to unsuspecting contestants and don’t fulfill such promises. I won with hopes of benefits but got nothing” she stated.
Miss Osamor was promised a trip outside the country, a modelling contract with a famous agency, clothing for one year during her reign and one million Naira.
Sandra Osamor’s manager refused to speak on her allegations. He is said to have told a friend that if she wants to fight, he is ready to do so spiritually.
Meanwhile, a director in House of Twitch, Ayotunde, affirmed some of Osamor’s claims. He, however, justified their actions, stating that Miss Osamor failed to keep to the terms of the Miss Ideal Nigeria agreement.
“As Miss ideal Nigeria, there are obligations associated with the office and this includes project execution but Sandra was not forth coming when she was needed. We have a runner-up, who was always ready, and we resorted to work with the runner-up” he said.
He also disclosed that Miss Osamor was in the habit of not showing up for events because she works a 9-5 job and this affected some of their campaigns. In addition, he stated that she accused them of fraud because they used her picture on their website. “She willingly gave and agreed we use the pictures, so what is the fraud?” he said.
This is not the first time beauty queens and pageant organisers will clash.
