A total of 120 contestants are jostling for the 2020 Mr and Miss Nigeria International (MMNI) competition, the BLC organisers said on Thursday.
Also; contestants from 10 countries compete for Mr and Miss International Africa (MMIA).
The organisers, Brendance and Crusader Ltd (BCL), gave the figures in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.-
The CEO Bredan Nsikak, attributed the increase in the number of contestants for MMNI to the COVID-19-induced restrictions which, he said, made more people have time for the contest.
He added that no fewer than 25 aspiring contestants were disqualified due to age falsification, as the age limit was pegged at a minimum of 18 years and a maximum of 28 years.
