Olutosin Araromi, the 26years old represented Nigeria at Miss Universe 2019 and finished her race for the crown at the top 20.

The 68th edition of the international beauty pageant as she competed alongside 90 other ladies was held at the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.

However, the beauty queen lost her mother in Nigeria to a car accident while she was competing for the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN) 2019 ahead of the Miss Universe.

Miss Araromi can be described as resilient because the death of her mum didn’t hold her back from competing and she came out at the top.

I never thought in my life I would be writing this but with a very heavy devastated heart I’m here to inform everyone of the untimely passing of my sweet Mother Elizabeth. My mother and I travelled back home to Lagos, Nigeria to pursue my lifelong dream of representing Nigeria on an international platform so I applied to compete for @silverbirdmbgn. Unfortunately this past Friday evening when me and her were coming back from the mainland after wrapping up my final evening gown fitting disaster struck. Our @uber @ubernigeria broke down on the 3rd mainland bridge-ojoo express. When we were trying to get to safety and get into our 2nd Uber a danfo bus veered off track and struck my mom. The danfo bus didn’t stop it kept on driving. Thankfully by a Good Samaritan we were able to get my mom into a car and rushed to the hospital. After about 20-30 minutes of trying to resuscitate my mother the doctor announced that the injuries she sustained were fatal. My whole life changed in less than an hour. Those who are close to me know how close I was to my mother. She was my friend, my mentor, my spiritual prayer partner, my motivation, my confidant, my everything. She sacrificed her life to help me pursue my dream. The marathon will continue…I will still compete in @silverbirdmbgn to honor my mom and her legacy. And in the future I plan to start a foundation in her honor. Threw this hard time in my life I’ve learned that time with your loved ones should never be taking for granted. Love and cherish the people who truly support you in life. And God will give you strength through all of life’s burdens. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for me, reached out to me and donated towards my mom’s funeral. Mommy I will make you proud I promise everything you taught me I will apply it to my life and teach my future children. I love you soo much ma, till we meet again in heaven, love you forever🙏🏾✨❤️#RIPmom #heavengainedanangel #iyaniwura #loveyou 9/6/2019💔
