Our Official Harshtags
The Miss Black Beauty Africa Pageant is a pace-setting, International, African, informative, educative, entertaining & cultural event, channeling the beauty pageant entertainment industry as an effective tool to kick against skin bleaching, encourage African ladies to love and appreciate their black skin tone, empower the pageant hopefuls, fight depression & a platform to bridge the gap & promote the African culture and tourism.
We have developed a unique international African reality TV & online pageant show event for the most incredible women from Africa to participate in the most prestigious contest!
Because many young ladies admire and aspire to be a beauty queen, Supreme Dynamic Concepts Limited believes a beauty queen would be a good and effective advocate of worthy causes, to give life to this vision & serve as a role model dedicated to uphold the advocacy of kicking against skin bleaching, hence the first official launching and press conference of MBBA which was on the 29th of June 2017 at the British Council in Accra, Ghana.
Beauty Deeper than the surface
Long before the spotlights; long before the fancy gowns fall over the heads of contestants, comes the Cause of the beauty pageant "Beauty deeper than the surface”. We are organizing this pageant to raise awareness about skin bleaching as most bleachers are ignorant, vulnerable, facing insecurities and dancing to the society's tune of standard of beauty & struggling with depression!
We are also organizing this pageant for the culture, to use the platform to promote & Exhibit the African rich culture & tourism.
Pageant is not just about contestants strutting on the runway, it can be used to reach out to people and promote a lot of things & speak against social issues too.
Pageantry can be very rewarding for ladies and Miss Black Beauty Africa Pageant offers a strong foundation to enforce those values, although the reign of Miss Black Beauty Africa is just a year, this incredible Queen will travel throughout Africa to participate in charitable fundraisers under the auspices of the Miss Black Beauty Africa Foundation & Urban and Rural Dream Foundation, while promoting the beauty, intelligence, and charm of the African women with class and elegance. She will have a once in a life time opportunity to gain innumerable contacts, lifelong friendships, and endless support from diverse communities that will advance her status beyond imaginable outlooks.

"In 2016 I became confident to pursue the cause I nursed since I was 13, in 2017 I successfully launched it & attempted to organize the main event but got disappointed by my ex-business partner but I was stubborn & determined to Never give up, in 2018, the pictures became clearer & the vision got sky high & then it occurred to me that 2019 is game time & Yes! 2019 is game time!
I started Miss Black Beauty Africa to kick against skin bleaching, encourage African ladies to love and appreciate their black skin tone, empower the pageant hopefuls, fight depression, bridge the gap & promote the African culture and tourism & to
show that cultural diversity and beauty can unite people in Africa through a pageant where women can confidently showcase their talents, intelligence, and beauty on an African platform."

I think I can inspire a lot of young women to be themselves and that is half the battle. Just be yourself, it’s the easiest thing to be. Black girls, we just on another level.
There is no passion to be found playing small in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
― Nelson Mandela
You have the power to change perception, to inspire and empower, and to show people how to embrace their complications, and see the flaws, and the true beauty and strength that’s inside all of us.
European standards of beauty are something that plague the entire world. The idea that darker skin is not beautiful, that light skin is the key to success and love. Africa is no exception. When I was in the second grade, one of my teachers said, ‘Where are you going to find a husband? How are you going to find someone darker than you?’ I was mortified.

Let excellence be your brand, when you are excellent, you become unforgettable. Doing the right thing, even when nobody knows you’re doing the right thing will always bring the right thing to you

Strong woman, you may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated . In fact it may be necessary to encounter the defeats , so you can know who you are, what you can rise from and how you can still come out of it.

When I started modeling, it was like ‘oh she’s too dark ‘, and I kind of looked at them like, ‘you’re too daft’!

It’s OK not to like someone either for a reason or no reason at all , but don’t be a bully and disrespect, degrade, and humiliate the person simply because you dislike them. Bullies cause depression & depression leads to suicide, don’t be a murderer!

Dear black girl listen, you are a beautiful melanin Queen! You don’t have to turn your skin to 100 watt incandescent light bulb just to feel beautiful or attractive . Bleaching your skin is harmful & can cause skin cancer! Love yourself, embrace your skin tone & choose healthy skin over skin bleaching because health is wealth & black is beautiful! So sweetheart, put the hydroquinone container down & enjoy sunshine like i do & yes! Beauty Is deeper than the surface.
― Zino Lexili Ogazi
I love the fact that a young person, someone as young as zino, has put Miss Black Beauty Africa together. It’s not actually easy to, first of all, conceptualize events of this nature, so kudos to her & her team and I hope that this is going to be an eye-opener for young people coming up who think that their skin color is not good enough, I hope they are going to learn that being black is everything, you just need to appreciate your roots & who you are
