Grace Atinuke Oyelude, the first Miss Nigeria, celebrated her 90th birthday today.

After defeating over 200 Nigerian girls in the event, Oyelude was awarded Miss Nigeria in 1957.

Oyelude has previously stated that she became Miss Nigeria by chance.

Her brother, a broadcaster, noticed the pageant adverts in the newspaper and entered her without her knowledge in Lagos, despite the fact that she was still living in Kano.

She was admitted to the school of nursing at Ashford, Kent, England, after winning the pageant, which came with a reward of 200 pounds and a two-week return ticket to London. She became a state licensed nurse in 1961.

She studied at the St. Thomas Hospital School of Midwifery in London, where she graduated in 1962 as a state certified midwife SCM.

She also earned a Credential in Nursing and Hospital Administration from the Royal College of Nursing in England in 1971, and another diploma from the Ghana Institute of Management and Personnel Administration in 1976.

Miss Nigerian organizers took to Instagram to wish her a happy 90th birthday.
