African Beauty “au Naturel” Winner

June 29, 2007

That’s it folks let the winner be known, enough with the suspense already right :-D? In spite of the low turnout of participants – 10 only 😦 – myself and the rest of the judges (including my mother, and no I don’t live with her, anyway wtf do you care…so piss off) still had a hard time picking out the winner, since all participants were so beautiful!

So the winner of the 3 gift cards (Best Buy, Target and iTunes) is none other than the enchanting Chioma. More about her below. Many thanks to those who participated and great week-end to all. See ya @ the Shrine tonight maybe?

African Beauty “au Naturel”

June 22, 2007

hundred-mile-smile.jpgTo all African sirens out there, starting today I’m running a fun contest that I dubbed African Beauty au Naturel. The contest will reward its winner the following gift cards: $25 Itunes, $25 Target and $25 Best Buy. As its name implies, the object of the contest is to crown the most beautiful African girl without make-up or artificial apparatus, yes totally “au naturel”, no cheating!! To participate, just send a couple of your most enchanting photos to the following email address along with a short bio of yourself (ie. name, where from, etc.): oneafricandude@gmail.comm (just remove the last m) . The winner will be announced here next week Wednesday. Although the contest is open to all, keep in mind that you can only use the gift cards in the US of A :-(. Bonne chance to all and thank you for participating!

It is also in the spirit of beauty that I offer this video of Nigerian artist 2 Face, in this popular song rightfully called “African Queen”. Good week-end to all!!!
