Miss Nigeria didn’t win the Miss World crown, but her giddy reaction when Miss Jamaica’s name was announced as the pageant winner on Saturday is going viral as an example of how friends should support each other.
Three women remained on the stage waiting to find out who would be crowned Miss World: Miss Nigeria, Nyekachi Douglas; Miss Jamaica, Toni-Ann Singh; and Miss Brazil, Elis Coelho.
When Singh was announced as the winner, no one seemed more excited than Douglas. Singh looked shocked at first, but Douglas didn’t skip a beat.
She immediately started celebrating the big moment, did a happy dance and stomped her feet in joy. She then shouted her congratulations at the new Miss World and enveloped Singh and Coelho in one big group hug.
Fans on social media loved the show of support and remarked that we could all use a friend like Miss Nigeria.
“In 2020 when your friend starts a new business, podcast, therapy, anything that enhances their life. Be her Miss Nigeria,” wrote one Twitter user.
