Former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Munachi Abii has revealed why transitioned from serving in her capacity as a beauty queen to being a rapper.
Munachi who also doubles as an actor told Hip TV in a recent interview that beauty pageants do not equip one with skills and prepare them to face what lies ahead in terms of their professional career.
She said; “Being a beauty queen was very interesting. Unfortunately, I felt like I was thrust into the deep end too quickly. It is not just about me. I feel it’s a beauty pageant industry thing. Beauty pageants never really prepare one for what lies ahead.
They just tell one to put oneself together and that’s about it. They tell one that whatever one does, one should make sure one does not disrespect the brand, at least in the first year. There is a whole lot more to it which I had to learn along the way.”
Speaking on why she became a rapper, she said, “From there, I became a rapper. I always wrote music. I had friends in the music industry, so they brought me along. Typically, beauty queens are expected to be singers but I did not want to be like everybody else. I wanted to stand out and rapping was something that stood out. Till date, I have not come across any beauty queen that raps.”
