Asking a lady for sexual gratification to win pageantry is inhumane---Queen Elizabeth Aminata Amadou


Beautiful Elizabeth Aminata Amadou is the winner, Face of Peace Africa 2021. I this exclusive interview with Topflyers Magazine, the 22 years old undergraduate of Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma speaks about the need to change people’s biased mindsets of models as well as her rise to stardom in Miss Peace Africa 2021 pageantry.

Can you tell us about yourself?

My name is Elizabeth Aminata Amadou. I am the winner of Miss Peace Africa 2021. I am a student of Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma. I am 22 years old and I am proudly a Christian.

You recently won Face of Peace Africa 2021. Is this your first time contesting in pageantry?

Yes, this is my first time contesting in pageantry.

Did you know you would win the pageantry from its onset?

Actually, I did not really put it in mind that I was going to be the ultimate winner. All I had in mind was to put in my best, showcase myself, do the best I could. However, I wasn’t expecting to really be the winner.

What did you enjoy most about the pageantry?

I enjoyed virtually everything that was done. They were all fun and an experience I would like to have again especially when we were told to showcase our best skill.

What skill did you showcase?

I wowed people with my singing skill.

Can you sing very well?

Yes, I can definitely sing very well.

Do you intend being a music artiste in future?

Actually, I intend delving into the movie industry because I have friends that are into acting. So I intend hooking up with them but I could also go into the music industry if fate leads me there. You know, sometimes, man proposes, God disposes so let the will of the Lord be done.

What lessons did you learn from the contest?

I learnt a lot of things but the one that triggered me most was that people are observant of your actions and inactions. I never really knew this because people were not supporting me during the contest until two days to the final contest. So, I learnt that people know when you are doing well and would support you if you don’t give up although the support may come at the 11th hour. Nevertheless, patience is key, it pays a lot.

What do you think made people turn up for you two days to the final contest?

I don’t really know but I think it is God because I went to them at the onset of the pageantry to ask for their support but they were reluctant until two days to the grand finale. However, when I kept pestering them, God intervened and they turned up. So it was just God.

Some people believe models are sexually loose and may need to be sexually intimate with certain people to win pageantries. What is your reaction to that?

I won’t blame the people with such beliefs. This is because such situations intermittently occur in our society and I have experienced something like that in time past. However, it is not totally true and does not happen in all pageantries. Asking a lady for sexual gratification to win pageantry is inhumane, it is totally wrong.

What do you advice models who encounter such situations?

It is simple. Modeling is not a do-or-die affair and the modeling industry is plural. If one agency is asking you for sexual gratification which you shouldn’t do, stand your ground. If because of that they evict you, try another modeling agency and one day you will be the best you can without soiling your feminine integrity.

If you were to change something in the modeling industry, what would that be?

I would strive to change the negative mindsets of people towards models.

Interviewer:…and how do you intend achieving that?

By creating awareness on what modeling truly stands for through social media platforms.

What do you think makes a good model?

Good character is the main attribute of a good model.

What are your best meal and colour?

My best meal is melon soup with Pando and any kind of meat.

Interviewer intercepts: Any kind of meat like frog meat right?

(Laughs) No, meat from domestic animals and livestock such as goat, chicken, etc (smiles).

(Interviewer laughs). Ok. What is one thing you can never do in life irrespective of the pressure on you?

I can never deny God, kill someone or deny my family members.

In a game of truth and a lie, tell us something true about you and something not true then allow the audience to guess which is the truth and the lie.


I am from Senegal and I was born in Nigeria.


Behind every successful man there is a woman and vice-versa. Is there a man behind your success in Miss Peace Africa Pageant?


Yes, there is a man behind my success.


Do you care to tell us more?


Yes. I had the dream of becoming a model when I was younger and as I started growing my family discouraged me but when I met this my friend, he motivated me to achieve my modeling dream. So I really appreciate him for that.


Interviewer cuts in: Kudos to that man for motivating you again. How did he feel the day you won the pageantry?


He was so excited. He couldn’t believe it and he was very shocked. I was also very happy that I made him proud.


How can people reach you?

Who are the people you would like to give a shout out to?

I will like out to give a shout out to King South. KKzy, King Brown, Ose Black, my aunty, V, and my mum, Peace.
