Ex-Beauty queen calls out organizers of Face of Amber pageant, says she was promised a car and more but got only N10k

Bolarinde Damilola who won the Face of Amber pageant two years ago, has called out the organizers of the beauty competition for never fulfilling their promise to her. In  a post she shared on IG, Bolarinde who is set to hand over to another queen today, alleged that she was promised a trip to California, a car, modeling contracts and more but she never got them. According to her, she only received N10,000 from the organizers. Read her post after the cut.
"My name is Bolarinde Damilola,born June 29 1996. On 14th December 2014 I was crowned the face of Amber organized by @faceofambersignaling the birth of a new phase in my life. I was beyond ecstatic,I believed I was blessed and highly privileged​ to wear such a prestigious crown or so I thought. As the winner I was promised a brand new car,a trip to California, modeling contracts, cash prize etc.
Unfortunately,till now I have received non of my prize, luckily for me I was given the sum of 5thousand naira twice and nothing more. I have worn the crown for over 2years with so much sadness and a sense of helplessness.I was crowned by@melvin0duah and severally I have vented out my frustration to him on how I have been unfairly treated by the organizers of Amber pagent but lately he simply ignores them.

Maybe its the country or perhaps as a people we feel its okay to walk over the voiceless, why should we feel its normal to act dishonestly towards​ others? Why should i not receive what is rightfully mine? Why should i wear a crown filled with so many thorns? That I shall never know but what I do know is with this experience I have learnt a lot in life. On how to be patient,on how to always see the light at the end of the tunnel, on how to always believe humans will be always be human and that looks can be deceiving,everything is not always as it seem.

Although I was unfairly treated, I believe queens are not just crowned they are also made, as queens we should stand against injustice in the society.I stand against it!

I hope for a better country where people are given what duly belongs to them, where people speak against wrongdoings without fear of reproach, a country where your word is your bond, a country where hard work is acknowledged and honesty becomes our benchmark.

On several occasions I have been asked "queen where is your car, Are you in California now?" but little do they know that heavy is the head that wears the crown.

Today marks the end of my reign, a new queen will walk the same journey I did. Goodluck!

It is normal with mushroom beauty pagents... there are a lot of them here in Abuja that use it as an avenue to organize girls for pimping to rich men. (Get a bigger penis @ https://penisenlargementgym.com)

What a cheap pageant organisers.. maybe they didn't recover more than they spent. She should manage it abeg atleast she has gotten the publicity needed to move on the next level. One senseless senator somewhere will make it up for her. Nne ndo!

I want to believe she made a mistake with the currency.Perhaps she meant $10k..If this is true,then its really really bad.

NLRC works closely with CPC (Consumer Protection Council )Get in touch...you won't need the services of a lawyer that you will pay from that your lean 10k you WON.
