MFOH Nigeria and The 2023 Golden Stars Award

By Nollywood Gists

Since announcing the categories and nominees for the Golden Stars Awards 2023, pundits have been excited about the event, which celebrates achievements in the entertainment, entrepreneurship, and sports sectors, especially the Beauty Queen of the Year category.

The Beauty Queen of the Year category is particularly interesting going by the role Beauty Queens play as the symbolic representation of a collective identity by a group of people to represent them (or some of them) to a larger, often national, audience.

It is also fascinating because it is a category where the young, beautiful, vibrant, intellectually sound, and eloquent beauty queen, career model, humanitarian, and entrepreneur; Amb. Rita Chika Ezenwa (NERITA); Miss Face of Humanity Nigeria (MFOH Nigeria) has been nominated, and analysts are finding it difficult to write her off going by her unprecedented profile as an amazon, woman valor, and pathfinder of a rare breed, who has been described as a symbol of hope, with an adorable sense of belonging and respect for humanity.

Very assiduous, focused, and result-oriented, Ezenwa Nerita joined the modeling industry in 2014 and has steadily progressed in Pageantries, Runways, and Commercial Modeling.

Before becoming Miss Face of Humanity Nigeria, she participated in and won several other pageant crowns such as the Most Beautiful Girl Abuja in 2016 and Queen of Aso International in 2019.

Equally, she has walked on runways for Runway 3 in Abuja, Oyami Fashion Show in Benin Republic, and others numerous to mention, just as she has done commercial shoots for brands such as Elsas, the Michelle brand, and Shushi.

In 2018 she was unveiled as the face of one of the fastest and biggest perfume brands in Nigeria; Sapphire Scent and Sapphire Time.

As an entrepreneur, Ezenwa Nerita owns an online store known as Nerita Luxury, wherein she produces and sells Bedding sets, Duvet, Throw Pillows, Souvenirs and Night wears.

Also, a certified interior decorator and designer, whose company; Nerita Homes & Interiors provide unique interiors for both residential and commercial space.

Ambitious, optimistic, and goal-driven, the light-skinned beauty queen, out of her passion to reach more people with her humanitarian campaign, founded an NGO; Nery Developmental Initiative in April 2022.

Though her humanitarian engagements came to the limelight when she became the Queen of Aso International in 2019, over the years, she has been unconditionally dedicated to her vision of getting infants out of the street and giving them a better reason for living.

She has initiated several projects and advocacies to provide care for children suffering from autism, out-of-school kids, and charity visits to IDP camps where she and her team have provided foodstuffs, clothes, etc. More so she has partnered with NAPTIP to organize a Kick-Against-Rape project in addition to a back-to-school project.

Beyond the God-given factor, her inspiration comes from life experiences. Ezenwa Nerita grew up in a very unsure background. So, having seen the downside of life, she decided to do better and change her story. This inspires her a lot as she wakes up every morning desiring to be a better version of herself.

Since becoming the Miss Face of Humanity Nigeria, she has used the platform to become a better version of herself and engage highly profiled stakeholders in the fight for social inclusion for kids living with disabilities, special needs, women and youth empowerment, peace, and sustainable development, through advocacies, outreach, and charity, etc.

Given her passion and enthusiasm, Amb. Rita Chika Ezenwa (NERITA) is a plain beautiful woman who has strived to break free from imposed and self-imposed blockades that often drag most individual youths from achieving their dreams.

Thus, receiving the 2023 Golden Stars Award Plaque as The Beauty Queen of The Year will add to improving the already strong dynamism and functionality in redefining the essence of being a Beauty Queen.
