Dorcas Kasinde, the beauty queen from Congo who won the Miss Africa pageant got more than she bargained for as she was announced as the winner: her hair caught on fire!
The excited winner was on stage to receive her crown and sash when fireworks lit up and ignited her hair. Fortunately, the fire was put out quickly before it did any more damage. She later returned to stage to wear the tiara and collect her $35,000 cheque.
Miss Congo finished first ahead of Miss Nigeria and other beauty queens from around the continent. Viewers found it funny and made light of the incident.
