This may not be the way Miss Congo thought she’d celebrate her win at Miss Africa 2018.
Shortly after Dorcas Kasinde won the annual beauty pageant on Friday her wig caught on fire.
Nigeria’s Daily Post said that the fireworks used in celebration of her win led to the incident.
Kasinde beat out Nigeria’s Chiamaka Nnaemeka and Zambia’s Glady’s Kayumba and won $35,000 and a car, according to TMZ.
