Adaeze Yobo (born Adaeze Stephanie Chinenye Igwe) is a former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria.[1] [2]

Formerly a student at the University of Abuja, Igwe pursued her childhood dream by representing Anambra in the pageant with 29 other girls.[3] Like Ann Suinner before her, Igwe's project is Sickle cell awareness; she also used her reign as a platform to showcase Nigerian talent. Apart from winning five million naira, a Hyundai car, and endorsement deals, Awka-native Igwe represented Nigeria at Miss World 2008 in South Africa.[4] She made the top twenty in Miss World Talent, and placed second in Miss World Sports.

During her reign, Igwe established her own charity The Adaeze Igwe Foundation, an organisation which promotes AIDS and Breast Cancer awareness, and raises funds towards similar causes, including malaria and tuberclosis. Its mission is "to create and increase access and opportunities to Nigerian youths and communities towards addressing [their] needs and challenges in relation to health and sustainable development." [5][6][7] She has since left the University of Abuja, and started a Communications course at the New York Film Academy.[8]

In 2010, Igwe married Everton player Joseph Yobo in a midnight ceremony held in Jos;[9] the couple started dating in 2009 and are now expecting their first child. [10]
