Wendy Efele has emerged the winner of this year’s Face of Candy City beauty pageant, which held at the Astoria Event Centre in Lekki, Lagos State, recently. The 22 year- old entrepreneur, who is also a student from a higher institution in Ghana, defeated 30 other housemates to clinch the title. The housemates were camped for several days and were tested in intellectual, etiquette and beauty regimen and some fell by the wayside. At the grand finale held at Lekki, 11 titles, five crowns were won with one winner. The winner of Face of Candy City 2018, Wendy Efele, got away with an official car, a trip to Dubai and other prizes like hair and cosmetic products from the sponsors. “I am very happy to win this pageantry although I wasn’t sure about winning. It makes me feel great to be the Face of Candy City after trying just once although I have been following them for about two years now on Instagram,” says Miss Efele. Wendy, however, disclosed that she has been getting negative comments on social media following her victory. The CEO, Candy City Entertainment, Ofoma Divine, expressed satisfaction on the success of the fifth edition of Face of Candy City stating that the Journey so far has been good. He said, “I feel very good knowing that against all odds, it was a success. At first, I got a call that my mum was rushed to the hospital. That alone broke me down along with a text message saying that one of our contestants was kidnapped in Benin but thank God for his mercies, everything went smooth afterwards and we were able to accomplish our goals on this edition”.
