While congratulating the winners on their victories, he reminded them that they are now role models to many, and advised them to uphold the integrity, royalty and dignity that go with their crowns and titles; to live the worthy lives expected of them; and to fulfill all they pledged to achieve with their crowns, while also impacting positively in the society.

On what she plans to do with the new crown and title, Miss Okika,who is also a Nollywood actress, said, "I will carry out some pet projects, part of which include giving out food and other things within my capacity to the needy, visiting some hospitals to pray for, encourage and financially support the sick, encouraging girlchild education, and positively impacting the Mbanese society in general, among others."

She advised her fellow contestants who did not win in the contest never to feel demoralised, but to rather continue to try their fortune in other such contests, as tomorrow may be their own turn to win.

On her own part, the 3rd Prize Winner and Miss Mbanese Culture 2021, Miss Ezeutulu Chinwendu Marycynthi (from Okpo in Utuh) appreciated the host, the Elephant Town Entertainment for seeing value in organising such contest which gave them the opportunity to showcase their beauty, talent and intelligence and shine to the world.
