The grand finale of the 2018 Miss Africa Beauty Pageant was held in Nigeria yesterday. As Congolese representative, Dorcas Kasinde, who won the contest was crowned, her wig caught fire on the 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.
