The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Lagos Chapter will today host the second edition of the prestigious Miss AGN-Eko beauty Pageant at the Haile Selassies Hotel and Suites in Aguda Surulere, Lagos.

According to the Chairman, Lagos State Chapter, Don Pedro Agandi, at a press conference held in Surulere recently, it is to encourage the cultural diversity of Nigeria through arts, social service and entertainment as well as the gift and the intelligence in ladies.

“Of course, actresses are meant to be beautiful and to be able to represent AGN and Nollywood very well. Hence, we are using this platform for discovery of talent for the Guild. This is a pageant for all heights and sizes,” he explained.

Speaking further, Agandi noted that the AGN-Eko Pageant is to enhance the brand, visibility of products and services of corporate organisation. “We are doing this to discover tourism potentials for Nollywood and corporate Organisations. We believe that the Pageant would foster and create new role models who through the beauty pageant will serve as ambassadors that will define a new Nigeria woman.”

Meanwhile, the Pageant Manager, Cynthia Agholor, added that it is part of the Association’s quest to bring up a beauty queen that is very good in acting and can represent Nollywood anywhere anytime in the world. In her words, “We are doing this now because we feel we have come of age and we feel it is time to do it. All we are looking out for is someone we can call an image.”

Therefore, the Chairman disclosed that the winner of the 2014 AGN-Eko Pageant is expected to grab a one-year movie contract with a reputable movie producer alongside other fantastic prizes.
Others present at the briefing include the Pageant Director, Princess Edith Duru, State Secretary, Stella-Mavis Nnaji and Miss Intelligent AGN-Eko 2012, Blessing Anthony-Ani amongst others.
