The show held at the Silverbird Galleria on Saturday, October 29, 2011 attracted a huge turnout.
The anchor of the night, Munachi (a former MBGN queen) was far from a good host; the model-rapper lacked charisma and poise as she often fumbled her lines.

Fourth runner up went to Joseph Agossa, third runner up to Bandele Adebule, Second runner up to Chucks Obichukwu. The second position was given to Melvin Oduah, leaving Deji Bakare to be pronounced as Mr Nigeria.
