September 12th, 2021 will remain memorable for a long time because it was a day that glamour and colour was added to the ever busy Lagos roads as beauty and elegance met with beauty and performance.
Geely Nigeria in its capacity as The Official Car Sponsor for this year’s Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant, organized a striking array of their vehicles for the37 contestants representing all 36 states and the FCT.
The product of an exclusive partnership between one of the largest Nigerian solutions providers, Mikano International Limited and Geely Global, Geely Nigeria, is one of the newest entrants into the Nigerian Automotive scene.
Geely, newly brought into Nigeria by Mikano, has grown to become a global auto giant, being the largest shareholder of A G Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes Benz. Geely also took complete ownership of Volvo Autos in 2010 and is the sole owner of LEVC, the manufacturers of the famous London black cabs.
These are just a few of the impressive partnerships and acquisitions of Geely’s through the years, including a recently announced partnership with Renault.
Now, on this bright and sunny Sunday, Geely Nigeria’s 21-car strong convoy, embarked on a tour of the host city, Lagos, in a motorcade that took off from Geely Nigeria’s flagship showroom on Adeola Odeku, Victoria Island, passing through prominent locations like the home of Silverbird (MBGN’s organizers)-on Ahmadu Bello way and Eko Hotel and Suites, (the venue for the crowning event) on Adetokunbo Ademola, Victoria Island.
The route for the autocade gave the girls an opportunity to see the city of Lagos, promote the event and enjoy the comfort of comfortable and tech-savvy Geely cars.
The MBGN contestants delighted onlookers and fans, happily cheering and waving to the crowds that gathered on the streets to catch a glimpse of the Most Beautiful Girls in Nigeria in the Most Beautiful Cars in Nigeria. The motorcade ended on a high note when all the ladies were returned safely to their base with goodie bags and treats, courtesy Mikano International and Mikano Foods.
The convoy of Geely cars, featured all three models in Geely Nigeria’s current lineup: the iconic Emgrand 7 sedan, which the MBGN 2021 winner will walk away with, the X7 Sport SUV and the recently launched Coolray crossover SUV.
Geely Nigeria, brought to you by Mikano International, is proud to be associated with the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria platform, a prestigious and reputable brand that has groomed successful, young Nigerian ladies into becoming icons of beauty and intellect.
Geely’s brand ethos – “making refined cars for everyone” – makes it fitting that the leading car company is partnered with a platform that has, over the years, refined many beautiful, capable young women and led them on to global recognition.
