Click for a large view of EseThis year’s sixth Miss Black Canada pageant was held on Sunday 26th October in Toronto. Over five hundred people gathered at the venue to witness the display of beauty, talent and excellence of 26 contestants from across Canada. The contestants were judged on their communication skills, talent, swimming costume and evening wear.

Ese Ero, born in Nigeria and a resident of Vancouver, represented British Columbia at the pageant. Several of the contestants had been in pageants before but it was the first time for Ese. She dazzled the audience with her smile, great personality, beauty, wit and talent. When she performed the “Tchologo” dance from Ivory Coast, the audience starred in awe and amazement. She captivated the audience and the judges. Ese made it to the top five finalists and ended up as the third runner up for the crown.

James Avery, better known as “Uncle Phil” on Fresh Prince of Belair was one of the five judges while Freddie Jackson’s voice added to the festivities of the evening. Freddie sung five of his favorite romantic songs before the final count down of the pageant.

Other special guests included the reigning queens for the Jamaica-Florida, Miss Canada Plus, Miss Ghana, Miss Teen pageants and also the reigning King from Mr. Caribbean Canada pageant.
