Miss Africa 2018 beauty pageant queen, Dorcas Kasinde, says she is fine after he hair caught fire during the crowning ceremony in Cross River State in Nigeria.
Kasinde was announced as the winner on December 27 and as she stepped forward to wear the crown, her wig burst into flames, presumably from a spark of the fireworks.
The beauty queen has thanked her fans for all their support and says she is happy to be the new Miss Africa 2019 Calabar.
