African Beauty- Adaeze Yobo

Adaeze Yobo (born Adaeze Stephanie Chinenye Igwe) is a former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, and step-daughter of former football player John Fashanu.
She was born in April 1990.
Formerly a student at the University of Abuja, Yobo pursued her childhood dream by representing Anambra in the pageant with 29 other girls. Like Ann Suinner before her, Yobo's project is Sickle cell awareness; she also used her reign as a platform to showcase Nigerian talent. Apart from winning five million naira, a Hyundai car, and endorsement deals, Awka-Etiti-native Yobo represented Nigeria at Miss World 2008 in South Africa. She made the top twenty in Miss World Talent, and placed second in Miss World Sports.

During her reign, Yobo established her own charity The Adaeze Igwe Foundation, an organisation which promotes AIDS and Breast Cancerawareness, and raises funds towards similar causes, including malaria and tuberculosis. Its mission was "to create and increase access and opportunities to Nigerian youths and communities towards addressing their needs and challenges in relation to health and sustainable development." She has since left the University of Abuja to start a Communications course at the New York Film Academy.
In 2010, Yobo married Fenerbahçe S.K. player Joseph Yobo in a midnight ceremony held in Jos after a brief courtship, and are now parents of their first child.
In 2011, Yobo was ranked 92 in a list of 101 Sexiest Soccer Wives and Girlfriends, as compiled by Bleacher Report.
