10 shocking facts about Agbani Darego, Nigeria’s woman pride. #6 will get you crying.
I would have loved to start from her background, but, this fact is just threatening to burst out of my mouth. AGBANI IS MARRIED and out of the market for single guys. Yey!
Yes. The 34 years old model, and winner of the 2001 miss world pageant has recently tied the knot wit ISHAYA DANJUMA, son of former defence minister, Theophilus (TY) Danjuma.
Based on logistics, the wedding took place on the 8th of April, in Marrakesh Morocco.
Agbani brought the miss world crown home in 2001 at the age of 18. 18! So this one is for girls of the days that won’t let social media rest with their flood of pictures, get involved in something rewarding. Who knows, maybe Nigeria will produce another miss world.
So, join the queue and get the next MBGN form.

This is sad, but I however have to say it. Our dear Darego Agbani is an orphan. She lost her dad in 2012, and her mother died of cancer.
Agbani has her own empire of fashion and style reality show called ‘Sylogenic’.
She is known as “black is beautiful”, even before she bagged the miss world crown.
