Chidinma Aaron on Sunday defeated 12 other finalists to become the 42nd winner of the Miss Nigeria beauty pageant. Chidinam Aaron who took over from Mildred Ehiguese who won the 2017 edition took home the winning prize of N3 million, a luxury apartment and an automobile. Hosted by media personalities, Ebuka Obi Uchendu and Kaylah Oniwo, twelve top finalists filed out for the grand finale which took place on Sunday at the Eko Hotels and Suites, Lagos. Eighteen contestants made it to the grand finale before the selection of the final 12 of Ntan Nton, Egede Lagele, Thomas Mseve, Ameh Munirah, Otunba Ifunaya, and Shitta Remilekun. Others are Tizhe Usa Miriam, Okudili Odinaka Doris, Agida Stephanie, Ugwu Ijeoma, Aaron Chidinma Leilani, and Dunu Chisom Olivia.
The contestants were later reduced to five from where Aaron emerged. The final five were Dunu Chisom, Ntan Sharon Nton, Ameh Munirah, Agida Stephanie and Aaron Chidinma Leilani. Dunu eventually picked the prize for the first runner-up, while Ameh was named the second runner-up. There was no registration fee for the 2018 edition of the pageant in a bid to be all-inclusive and to prevent financial restraints on the part of young ladies who are truly deserving of the ultimate title.
