New Miss Nigeria, 18-year old Shatu Garko has replied her critics saying they can keep talking, but the Miss Nigeria crown is already on her head.
Shatu replied her critics in an interview, saying she has been getting alot of messages through her DM.
Speaking in an interview on Friday, Garko said, “No one has called me but I’ve gotten so many comments and DMs that ‘I was naked’, ‘I’m doing the wrong thing.”
The Kano State indigene said that Nigerians like judging people, adding that many have ignorantly claimed that the President and the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, paid for her to be crowned as Miss Nigeria.
“Honestly, Nigerians like judging people. Many people said the president paid for me to get the crown; others said my state governor paid to get crowned. Some people said my parents paid Miss Nigeria for me to get crowned but that’s not true,” she told BBC Pidgin.
“Some people who are not even Muslims said that I’m spoiling the Miss Nigeria culture. Honestly, I don’t reply them, I don’t say anything, I just move on. The crown is already on my head so there is nothing I can do,” she added.
