Does your state follow?

Are you ready to have some fun today? Alright!

A reader of mine messaged me via Facebook and asked me quote: "Jide, can you do a list of states with the most beautiful women in Nigeria?" Immediately, I thought to myself that that was in fact a good list idea but I also knew that I'm not one to just by my own opinion come out here and give this kind of list because things like these are very subjective.

So, I turned my eye to the body in Nigeria whose work it is to literally determine stuff like this: the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria beauty pageant competition.

The Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN) competition has been happening since 1986 and has seen women from all 36 states come and compete for that coveted crown that has been won by icons such as Regina Askia and Agbani Darego.

So, to create today's list, I decided to go through all of the winners of MBGN since it started in 1986 and tally how many times each state has won for the lifespan of the competition. The results...are interesting.

Are you ready to dive in and see what state has the Most Beautiful Women in Nigeria according to this MBGN data? Then let's go!

Akwa Ibom women are some of the most talked about women in Nigeria, and it's obvious why.

A lot can be said about the women from Rivers State but one thing that has never and can never be up for debate is the level of beauty that state has.

Sweeping the competition with not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but FIVE winners including the first-ever win is Imo State. Imo produced the first-ever winner Lynda Chuba in 1986
