The Glamours Awards ceremony was hosted by popular Nigerian actors Omalicha Chuks and Ijeoma Orji, while the crowning ceremony was officiated by Dr Debby Goodnews Silas, founder of Debby Classique magazine and organiser of the D’CEM Awards USA, assisted by Mrs. Ego Ajiero, a Nigerian resident in America.






Ellis, who was delighted to share the joyous news of her new crowning as African Queen of Excellence, expressed happiness and pride at being welcomed into the Nigerian community and also disclosed that her ancestral DNA result showed that she is 44 per cent Nigerian.






The African American who proudly announced “My new African name is now Queen Nkechi,” affirmed that her reign as the Africa Queen of Excellence would be dedicated to promoting peace, love, and unity, not only within the African American and African communities but also worldwide through her Nkechi’s Heart initiative.






“Some of my dreams are to go to my native Nigeria and contribute to schools, create lupus awareness with some support, help some families with autistic kids and provide school essential supplies and personal care products,” she said.






Queen Nkechi, who declared her dedication to providing teenage girls with the best quality sanitary napkins, further said: “Let us collectively pledge to make 2024 a year marked by the gift of peace, unity, love, and hope. I am sincerely grateful to Dr. Debby Goodnews, the CEO of Debby Classique Magazine, for this has given me a wonderful opportunity, to use her brand to bridge this cultural gap and unite communities one heart at a time.”
