As the preparation for the “Clash of Beauty and Fashion” commences, pretty nollywood actress, Maureen Cyril, who is the vice president of Most Beautiful Model in Nigeria Project, has opened up on the objective behind the contest.

In an interview recently, she stated that the need to encourage upcoming models’ careers as well as promote African fashion to the rest of the world necessitated the hosting of an event of this magnitude. Her words: “it is purely models’ talent contest, designers’ exhibition and a platform that will see the convergence of Africa’s best Coutures.”

The fast raising Anambra State born screen diva, who has featured in several movies like Clap Of Thunder, Console My Son, Lady Gaga, amongst others, further stressed that the show will be well attended and highly packaged.

“Though I’m in Asaba now for a movie, but my team in Abuja are working round the clock to ensure we stage a world class event. At the moment, registration for models and fashion designers is going on; the lucky or selected contestants will be in for an overwhelming treat, professional camping training and experience of a lifetime.”
