Mr Nigeria, Nelson Enwerem, is calling on the support of Nigerians ahead of the 2019 Mr World beauty pageant in the Philippines.

Enwerem made this known in a chat with News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Lagos on his preparations for the 10th edition of Mr World Pageant, holding in August in Manila, the Philippines.

He appealed for support from Nigerians on what he called a “noble cause” which he said would bring pride to the country if he wins.

“I am calling for support and sponsorship by good-spirited Nigerians, as the contest is coming up in less than 30 days from now.

“I will be representing our beautiful country and I can’t do it alone. Other contestants have massive support from their respective countries and that alone can really boost one’s morale during the competition.”

He also spoke on his chances. He said “I’m confident about winning the world contest because I have all it takes; the challenge so far is getting my country on my side and her full support financially and morally”

Commenting on voting strategy, he said it would be on a social media app, MobStar App.

“The official voting platform for the Mr World competition is a social media app called the ‘MobStar App’ which people have to download.

“Create an account, follow me and like my pictures and the contestant with the highest number of likes on his page wins the social media challenge,” he said.

He further urged Nigerians to participate in sending their votes as many times as possible, adding that this would boost his chances of winning.

“I need votes in order to increase my chances of winning because I’ve been preparing for this contest physically, mentally and spiritually.

“So I believe I can take my country to the next level with full support from Nigerians,” he said.
