Miss Earth Nigeria 2022 is Esther Oluwatosin Ajayi


Miss Ekiti, Esther Oluwatosin Ajayi, was crowned Miss Earth Nigeria 2022 in a glittering grand coronation show held on Saturday, August 27 at the EUI Event Center in Port Harcourt.

The 27-year-old beauty bested 24 other contestants to win her national title. She advocates the "Mash Up the Trash Initiative" which aims to create awareness and initiate actions among the youth on the effects of land-based pollution on the ecosystem.

Her elemental court includes Miss Edo, Abigail Ojeabulu (Air), Miss Lagos, Emesiobi Dwelling Chisaoku (Water), Miss Rivers State, Precious Bakor (Fire), and Miss Anambra, Ikechukwu Ifunanya (Ecotourism).

At the end of the event, last year's winner Christine Telfer passed her crown on to her successor who will compete in the Miss Earth 2022 pageant in the Philippines this November.

Reigning Miss Earth Destiny Wagner from Belize, who witnessed the pageant as a special guest, went to social media to share: "Grand time at the finale of [Miss Earth Nigeria]. What a wonderful show filled with so much culture and love. I am beyond thankful to be here."

This year, the "Yellow Trumpet Flower Crown" designed by The Pageant Star has been introduced. It was inspired by Nigeria's national flower, the Costus Spectabili or commonly known as the yellow trumpet, which symbolizes the beauty, uniqueness, and prosperity of the nation, but unfortunately, its going extinct.
