Miss Congo's Wig Catches Fire Moments After She Was Crowned Miss Africa 2018

Congolese representative, Dorcas Kasinde won the 2018 edition of Miss Africa beauty pageant hosted by the Cross River government.

Kasinde was named winner ahead of the first runner-up, Nigeria’s Chimamaka Goodness Nnaemeka, and Zambia’s Gladys Kayumba, who emerged as the second runner-up.

The 2017 winner, Gaseangwe Balopi from Botswana, crowned Kasinde as the new queen on Thursday.

Moments after Kasinde was announced as the winner, the stage fireworks were let loose and the afro wig donned by the new Miss Africa caught fire.

The incident caused a brief panic on the stage as Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, host of the show, and Balopi, ex-Miss Africa, frantically tried to put out the fire.

The Congolese beauty queen will take home $35,000 and a sports utility vehicle as her winning prize.

The Nigerian representative earned $10,000 while Zambia’s Kayumba will be given $5,000 for her effort.

Miss Zambia, Miss Nigeria, Miss Sierra Leone, Miss Congo, and Miss Ghana made the top five of the pageant which was held in Calabar, Cross River state capital.

Over 30 contestants from across Africa took part in the pageant which is now in its third year.

  1. For Warri if you broke them go say head burn

    But she just turned $35,000 richer why her head burn?

    I just hope it was quickly put out before any damage was done to her head or face/body..the people in charge of the pyrotechnics should have been more careful...congratulations to her

  2. Jesu!! Ebuka was trying to put off the fire instead of running for his life??


  3. So she wore a fake China made afro wig to a pageant called Miss Africa? The African Gods were not settling for the hypocrisy no more I see.

    1. Oh please! So it’s a crime that she wore an Afro textured wig??? There’s no pleasing you people

    2. Its her natural hair. Try to find out correct information before ridiculing people.
      Even original human hair wigs/weave do burn, not only china synthetic burn.

    3. Hair, wigs, extensions etc are flammable

    4. Natural, synthetic and non synthetic fit catch fire

    5. @anon 15:26 trying to form madam original hair wearer but ended up sounding like a dunce,olodo rapata...

    6. It was an accident ooo regardless all hair are inflammable also Ebuka is a real gentleman and a hero

  4. What a pity but a Very good lesson!
    We will keep reading issues like this as long as girls will carry these petroleum product thrash on their heads.

  5. This is no news, forest fires happens and it just happened.
