Description DM2011060101:NIGED:PERSONALITIES:BEAUTIES:OCT 1958 – How Does It feels To Be Miss Nigeria? “Oh, it’s quite a job to be popular. It gives one dizziness, and it’s only the realization that one is on top by the people’s choice that gives one the courage to go through it without succumbing.” So said Miss Nigeria 1958. And who is Miss Nigeria – this embodiment of a delicious sensation? She is a 19- year-old Helen Anyamaeluna. And before her day of glory, she was a clerk in the Eastern Nigeria Ministry of Transport. Helen is no brainless beauty. She is a linguist who can hold her own in English, French, Ibo, Efik and Yoruba. (Photograph by Drum Photographer ©BAHA)
