Otunba Gani Adams in his words, cleared air on impressions some people are having about the pageant, whereby some rumour mongers are saying whoever that emerges as the Queen will never give birth to a baby. He said Miss Okota 2011 Beauty Queen, Miss Ayomikun Idowu gave birth to a bouncing baby boy in United States of America three months ago.

That the future of our race is determined by the amount of education and knowledge that the youths have about the race and culture.
