Becoming a beauty pageant title holder is every model’s dream and the moment she conquers it, it becomes a lifetime memorable moment. But for 24 years old Dorcas Kasinde it became a memorable moment for all wrong reasons.
It was a terrible start to Dorcas Kasinde’s reign as Miss Africa 2018. The Congolese contestant was initially in tears of joy but they soon turned to Oh so no! Moment. Her hair was inexplicably engulfed by fireworks at the event in the Cross River State, in Nigeria.
Soon after the much-awaited announcement of the event was made and she became Miss Africa 2018 fireworks exploded to mark the celebration, but apparently, they also targeted the new Miss Africa’s hair and they started burning. The video of the incident has gone viral since. Watch it below:
Nevertheless, Miss Africa 2018 was fine and went to the stage to receive her sash and crown with grace. She was accorded with $35,000 (over Rs. 24L) and a sports car.
