It was pageant time again last weekend, and even though the big news was that Miss Jamaica, Toni-Ann Singh won the Miss World crown, but Miss Nigeria stole all of our hearts. Miss Nigeria, Nyekachi Douglas, was a delight during the entire broadcast of the pageant, but it was one moment in particular which won her a new collection of stans.
When Toni-Ann was announced as the 2019 recipient of the Miss World crown, Nyekachi started cheering and dancing, and immediately rushed to Toni-Ann to congratulate her.
You can watch the moment here:

She caught the attention of viewers earlier on in the pageant when she cheered Miss Kenya on while she was answering her question:

After the event, Nyekachi explained her reaction by saying that Toni-Ann had motivated her when she was feeling down, so she was just returning the favour:

A lot of people have drawing comparisons between Nyekachi Douglas and Miss Universe Miss Nigeria, Olutosin Itohan Araromi who was similarly excited when Zozibini Tunzi won Miss Universe.
