Sadly, Miss Nigeria, Debbie Collins, did not make it to the top 5, nor the top 10, not even the top 20.

Miss World 2001, Agbani Darego, has been the only Nigerian to win the competition since it started in1951.

Hopefully, next year’s Nigerian contestant will take us back to the glory days of 2001.
