Congolese representative, Dorcas Kasinde, has won the 2018 edition of Miss Africa beauty pageant hosted by the Cross River government.
Miss Congo emerged winner last night at the Miss Africa 2018 beauty pageant and shortly after she won, her wig caught fire on stage.
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.
24-year-old 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.
