Can we know you
My name is Mosy O’ Ginni.
I’m an Events director/consultant.
How did you become an events director
I floated an Event management company in the UK with Finishing Touch Events as its brand name.
It was established in 2002 and since then the event outfit have successfully provided extensive support for every type of conference, product launch and corporate events throughout the UK, and have a reputation within the event industry for being innovative, professional and entirely flexible in reacting to clients requirements.
Don’t you get stressed out sometimes? How do you manage all these
I’m the oldest of six siblings, and as the first born i have watched my parents and others look after my younger siblings and was also given opportunities to help out.
All this practice and observation has not only given me organisational skills but also make others want to put me in control.
As a first born, having other siblings means my parents had to start sharing their attention with my younger siblings and as a result, my thirst for approval seems to be unquenchable.
In order words, no matter how much praise or adoration I receive, I always find myself wanting more (smiles).
Furthermore, because I’m used to expecting that others will need my help, I’m usually the first person to volunteer when there is work to be done.
I find it hard to delegate responsibility even if I’m overloaded and stressed, i prefer to stay in control, I’m always keen to be in charge, always keen to stay in the heart of things.
Did you school in Nigeria or abroad
I grew up in Nigeria and the UK.
Formal education was completed both in Nigeria and UK.
What is Miss Hotlegs Nigeria all about
Miss Hotlegs Nigeria is a specialised beauty pageant.
It is an event designed to celebrate the beauty of women’s legs, and to showcase the accomplishments of today’s young women.
The pageant has been open to all Nigerian girls between the ages of 18 and 28 and who’s at least 5 feet 7 tall.
We held three important auditions to accommodate all applications from the three zones in Nigeria.
The crowning of the lucky winner of The Miss Hotlegs Nigeria 2016 took place on 28 March, 2016 at the Bespoke Center.
The winner, Miss Chidi Flora Oluchi was presented with a cash prize of N500 thousand.
She will also represent Nigeria at the Miss Hotlegs Africa Pageant which holds in Ghana, in December 2016.
The First runner up, Zainab Ayoola Adedoyin and Second runner up, Oluwuine Onyinyechi both have a cash prize of N250,000 and N150,000 respectively, along with sash and crown.
What were the challenges you faced while organising Miss Hotlegs Nigeria 2016
There were no sponsors
Arik air opted out at the last minute.
I was told the pageant’s name sounds provocative
The screenings in Lagos, Porthacourt, Abuja and the grand finale was self funded.
