The event which was activated today in Lagos is exclusively for Nigerian males between the ages of 17-28 years who either live in Nigeria or outside the shores of the country.
Mr. Universe Nigeria Contest, combines a male pageantry and a supermodel search into one to create a super talent competition for discovering future national personalities such as film-stars, models, businessmen, spokesmen and performers. Santiago Roberts, initiator and President of Mr. Universe Nigeria Organisation said the event which is encapsulated by its motto ' for the glamour, for the purpose, for the nation' has been strategically designed not just to add value to the contestants but also in the long run for them to become a force to reckon with both here in Nigeria and in the diaspora.
"The Mr. Universe Nigeria Pageant has a foundation of integrity and class. I do believe that the pageant sets the bar high, and it expects much from state delegates. The foundation is of moral and ethical quality, and definitely is a system that all eyes should be watching. We are on the move!" says Allen Ukwuru, the reigning Mr. Universe Nigeria 2012. Read More
