  9. I think safety is the word here. We blame witches for our carelessness. Thank God for the timely intervention.

  10. This is somehow funny but very dangerous and bad, thou you’re looking gorgeous and awesome but thank God you’re still alive.

  11. Is it the crown that attracted the fire or was her directly under the flames on the stage. Thank God her head didn’t get burnt

  12. Everything u people will blame witches. What of if it is a reminder to her that she needs to settle some people. Well am happy for her.

  13. That is dangerous But hope she is fine and In good condition though I dont believe any Calabar witch anything

  14. thank God that the incident was arrested immediately if not it would have been a different story all together. Anywasy congrats to miss Congo.

  15. This is serious so if ebuka didn’t meet her up ontime she would have been burnt to death….these stage flames should be reduced

  16. This is so unthinkable, was she close to the direct flames, there’s actually more to this than we know. Black people with black magic.

  17. I can’t stop laughing, this is absurd.how come her wig caught fire, well thank God she was not burnt.

  18. Nawa! I for tired wig just caught fire because of hugging this one na really Calabar witches work and God we thank you that nothing happened

  20. Nigerians with their local mindset what does calabar got to do with that now? It is just an unusual accident.

  21. Haha nothing I won’t hear in nigeria. how the caribbean winds now reached there to go and burn her hair now but anyway nothing callebaut will not feel though

  22. The girl is lucky that help came on time, this would have resulted in another fire tragedy. Congrats to her anyway

  27. This is strange, thank God that the plan of the devil didn’t work. Congratulations to you African beauty queen, all your efforts were not in vain. I think it’s Calabar people that sent the fire.

  28. Her village people in colabo with Canaveral witches are at work. Hahahahaha. Maybe they wanted her to show her real African hair not borrowed one

  29. very funny after being crowned her wig was on fire lol cant stop laughing well maybe there head was too hot for the crown lol

  30. Lol…maybe the wig was kinda inflammable, thank God,it wasn’t bad,one happy moment turning bad,its saddening

  31. Lol maybe her rival found a way to put fuel on the wig. But she should be grateful she didnt catch fire herself

  32. Its somehow funny, since Nigerians are saying calabar people didn’t it. But just thank God she wasn’t seriously injured.

  33. Like seriously and how is that possible thank God she was not hurt before they could rescue her wonders shall never end

  34. You know president was even suggesting natural hair for African pageant. I believe this was the reason the president made that insinuation

  35. Sorry o miss Congo. I just hope that more safety precautions will be taken by the organizers of the event to forestall any more incidents like this.

  36. That’ll teach the Congo people a lesson.. Next fire will not be wig but skin.. Fear Nigerian people on top competition

  40. Whoooaaaa!!!….Such an unfortunate event, i guess she didn’t see that coming. Congratulations to here though, hope the fire didn’t affect here that much.

  41. Lol. Before we blame calabar. The story said the fire was cause because of the stage flame. If she has use her natural hair nothing would have happened. But know ladies and passion for hair style..pls dont blame calabar ooo.

  44. This strange and funny, I haven’t heard of such. Well thank God that she won and also nothing happened to her.

  45. Thank God she survived and only her wig got burnt. But Nigerians should be careful on how they call out states when bad incidents like this happens.
