Founded in 2014, the Miss Nigeria USA was established with the aim of celebrating the Nigerian woman while appreciating their beauty, talent, skills and other unique attributes and goals she exhibits. They plan to achieve their goal through the Miss Nigeria USA Pageant event where contestants will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their physical, cultural and intellectual attributes as we choose a goodwill ambassador who will represent Miss Nigeria USA Pageant and Nigeria as a whole on a positive light. Award-winning Nigerian superstar, Banky W, will be performing at this event. Below is a flyer confirming his participation:
