Miss Congo, Dorcas Kasinde, won the African beauty pageant hosted by the Cross River State Government Friday — but unfortunately her hair got a little too close to sparklers and went up in flames.
According to TMZ:
It appears the people onstage waving around celebratory sparklers to honor Miss Congo were responsible for setting her hair ablaze, but it seems like they noticed right away … and hopefully the fire did her no harm. Kasinde reportedly beat out Nigeria’s Chiamaka Nnaemeka and Zambia’s Gladys Kayumbato take home the crown, and was awarded with $35k and a sport utility vehicle.
No word on the extent of her injuries.
