Oluchi Kalu, the reigning Miss Supranational Nigeria 2019, and 1st runner-up of Africa International Pageant (BAIP) 2019, has denied being the daughter of former Abia State Governor, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.
Kalu, who coasted to victory at the just concluded BAIP 2019 finals in Calabar, where she was crowned Miss Supranational Nigeria and emerged first runner-up, said she was suprised that after her victory a lot of Nigerians congratulated her as the daughter of Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu.
The beauty queen who is currently in the City of Silesia, Poland, for the 2019 edition of Miss Supranational World Finals, dismissed the report saying:
“Ever since I won the crown, I have received a deluge of calls and goodwill messages from Nigerians who are excited over my victory at the just concluded BAIP 2019 as Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu’s daughter. However, in order to set the records straight, I have decided to speak with my management hence this statement. While I have tremendous respect and love for Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu, I want to state that this is not the case.
“Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu is a great man with large heart. I respect him so much especially for his achievements as former Governor of my state. I also want to use this opportunity to congratulate him on his recent victory at the election tribunal,” the beauty queen said.
