The 2016 Miss Nigeria USA pageant took place on May 28 at the Symphony Space Theater in Manhattan and a new beauty queen was crowned.

Winning the coveted title was Lola Adeoye, who was representing Ekiti State. She beat 18 other contestants to emerge winner of the 2016 Miss Nigeria USA.

Lola’s win was an exceptional one in terms of appearance; mostly because, unlike her peers, she rocked her natural close-cropped hairstyle without using the use of hair attachments or wigs with unwavering confidence.
Meet the New Queen
Lola Abeni Adeoye is a 2014 alumna of the School of Communications, Howard University. Immediately following graduation, Lola entered Howard University School of Law, where she’s currently a 3rd year JD/MBA student.

At Law School, Lola has the pleasure of serving as the President of the Sports and Entertainment Law Students Association and Graduate Student Assembly Secretary. She has had the pleasure of taking several intellectual property related courses which has solidified her interest in becoming an Entertainment Attorney. This past semester, she was honored to be a Student Attorney in the Intellectual Property and Trademark Clinic at the Howard Law Clinical Center, which gave her the experience needed to be selected as an intern in Viacom’s Business and Legal Affairs Department for BET Networks this summer. Outside Law School, Lola loves to serve her community through various avenues, including her church home Graceland Bible Faith and her beloved sorority, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

As Miss Nigeria USA 2016, Lola’s year of service will focus on her platform- Suicide and Depression Awareness and Prevention; an issue dear to her heart.

This platform aims to expand the Nigerian Suicide Prevention Initiative from Abuja into the remaining 35 states in Nigeria and to also lobby the Nigerian government to review and update the Mental Health Act which has not been reviewed since 1959! She hopes that through this, the stigma of Mental Health in Nigeria will be broken and Mental Health issues would be taken more seriously.
