Agbani Darego and husband

Sensational Nigerian-born former Miss World, Agbani Darego, has finally found a soulmate after many years of speculations, sealing a secret wedding on Saturday in faraway Morocco.

And like her entrance into the limelight took many by surprise, her marriage to Ishaya Danjuma, son of former Minister of Defence, Theophilus Danjuma, which was taken away far enough for the prying eyes of Nigerians, also stole stealthily into the public knowledge, apparently the way she designed it.

The 35-year-old, according to the News Agency of Nigeria shared the news on her Instagram page with the picture showing her in a wedding dress with her partner turning their backs to the camera at the wedding.

She shared the picture with the caption, “08-04-2017, #Mrs. Danjuma”, which was further confirmed by her friend Elizabeth Elohor.

Elohor, while sharing the same picture wrote, “Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Danjuma @agbanidarego. May the almighty God bless your union. #mysisismarried, #beautifulcouple, #Marrakesh.

Her post revealed that the couple held the wedding ceremony in Marrakesh, Morocco over the weekend.

In 2001, Darego was crowned Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria. Contrary to popular belief, Darego did not replace Valerie Peterside after the latter was dethroned, as she had won Miss Nigeria.

A few months later she was a contestant at Miss Universe, and became the first Nigerian to place among the top 10 semi-finalists, finishing seventh overall. She was the only one to wear a maillot as opposed to a bikini during the swimsuit competition.

In November that year, she became the first native African to claim the Miss World title (Although past winners such as Penelope Coelen and Anneline Kriel are South African, they are of European descent, and Antigone Costanda, who represented Egypt in 1954 is of Greek heritage. Darego’s victory was widely welcomed in her home country, and her one-year tenure included goodwill trips and scheduled appearances on behalf of the pageant, and a national honour of MFR.

A graduate of Psychology from New York University, she has judged numerous pageants, and fashion and modelling competitions including Miss World 2014, Miss England 2002, Mr. Scotland 2002, and Elite Model Look Nigeria 2012 and 2014.
