A 19-year old student of the School of Nursing, Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba, Mosunmola Oladipo, has won the Miss Virginity 2015 beauty pageant.
Oladipo beat 51 other self-confessed virgins at the event held on Saturday in Surulere, Lagos.
For the first time, a pageant has been won based on modesty rather looks.
According to her, there was a lot of pressure from many people outside, but she was able to preserve herself based on her conviction.
“It’s all about self-determination. It is about knowing what you want to achieve. It is a thing of honour to be a virgin.”
The originator of the competition, Princess Adunni Adediran, said the contestants were not tested medically or physically.
She told Punch:
“I was thinking of our female children who men repeatedly use to satisfy their carnal desires before they are finally dumped. These girls will have undergone several abortions till their wombs are damaged. And when they marry they cannot have children. Some girls even run mad. This time around, God forbid that anyone who is not a virgin would come here to contest. I’m not testing them but they don’t know,” she said.
