Everyone Assumes a Reigning Queen is stinkingly Rich – Uwe Nja 2015/ 16
In a recent chat with our journalist, Ethelbert Umeh, Uwe Nja 2015/ 16 debunked the rumours making rounds that every reigning queen is rich. Queen Lilian Adolf Njribeako is so passionate about her convictions.
Talking about some challenges most beauty queens face, she said:
‘Everyone assumes a reigning queen is rich; that her agency and good spirited people are showering her with money. Though, there may be one or two of such occasions, but that is not always the case. The queen is always busy, working hard, trying to make money both for herself, and her agency. For instance, I work hard to make my money. I am working part-time, and school full time. I am contracted to go for auditions, fashion shows, and lots more.
The queen is always expected to write and deliver impromptu speeches, dress very well. While doing all these, she has to watch her diet, go for a workable exercise program. So, every queen has their particular ways of making money to fund their pet projects. I am very much aware that depending on the type of publicity you have, most queens don’t receive good sponsorships. Some are encumbered with poor funding both from their agency and other people. If you are beauty queen, you really need to work much harder too to raise your own money for the reign, because sometimes your agency and people may not give you enough’
