Ibinabo Fiberesima talks about her mental state... how she collapsed twice during the pandemic in England

Ibinabo Fiberesima has shared her mental state of health with City People Magazine, revealing how she collapsed TWICE in England during the pandemic. 

She also said her state of health might have gone worse due to the pressure of the pandemic and losing some close friends to covid-19. She told the magazine;

“I went to England before the whole pandemic started, I had health challenges. I had to do a surgery. I was here (in England) trying to recuperate to get my health back. So, I have been in England. And it has not been easy because, with my health challenges and the pressure of the pandemic, I started feeling somehow, and I collapsed twice during this pandemic.

It was quite scary and the ambulance came, rushed me to the hospital. They were trying to check if it was Covid-19 or not. They later discovered that it was not Covid-19, just my mental state. Everything crashed at a point, but thank God, I started with the Miss Earth event again and started picking up myself. I started looking forward to something.

I wasn’t panicking anymore. I lost quite a few persons close to me here in England to the Covid-19, and that really broke me and then again, my friends in Nigeria, I lost a few, not to Covid-19 this time round, but other things and they were close to me.

So, I think all that badly affected me. But thank God I am picking up again, preparing the new queen for her journey because the Miss Earth is virtual again for the global. So, there is so much work to do now. I am busy again preparing that.”


  1. Mental health should be taken seriously

  2. She goes through a lot. May the Lord rain peace into your life.
