Winner of Miss Ghana 2002, Shaida Buari Nubi has confirmed that men ask for sex before they agree to sponsor pageants.
There were reports of some beauty pageants in the past who confirmed that they were forced to engage in sex before they got sponsorship for their projects.
These reports were brushed aside.
But in an interview on Angel TV, the former beauty queen insisted there are several men who wanted s*x before they will sponsor her projects.
She said “I came across a lot of men who said if you want to get sponsored, let me sleep with you. The sex-for-favour phenomenon abounds. Till today, even within the oil and gas industry [where she works] it’s prevalent”.
She indicated that “It all boils down to morality. Thankfully, I can beat my chest that I never allowed myself to be used by any man. No man had sex with me in the name of Miss Ghana”.
