September 12th, 2021 was memorable. It was a day when beauty and elegance met with beauty and performance. Geely Nigeria in its capacity as The Official Car Sponsor for this year’s Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant organized a striking array of their vehicles for the 37 contestants representing all 36 states and the FCT.

Newly brought into Nigeria by Mikano, Geely has grown to become a global auto giant, being the largest shareholder of A G Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes Benz. Geely also took complete ownership of Volvo Autos in 2010 and is the sole owner of LEVC, the manufacturers of the famous London black cabs. These are just a few of the impressive partnerships and acquisitions of Geely’s through the years, including a recently announced partnership with Renault.

On this bright and sunny Sunday, a convoy of 21 cars Geely Nigeria embarked on a tour of the host city, Lagos, in a motorcade that took off from the company’s flagship showroom on Adeola Odeku, Victoria Island, passing through pertinent locations like the home of Silverbird (MBGN’s organizers)- on Ahmadu Bello way and Eko Hotel and Suites, (the venue for the crowning event) on Adetokunbo Ademola, Victoria Island.
