Mandjalia Gbané has been chosen as Miss Cote D’Ivoire and will represent the country at Miss World 2017 in People’s Republic of China later this year. Mandjalia was crowned by Esther Memel, Miss Cote D’Ivoire 2016.

Mandjalia Gbané is 1.85 m tall. She is student in 2nd year of commercial management. She lives in Abidjn, Cote D’Ivoire.

Miss Cote D’Ivoire pageant was formed in 1956. However, the country hasn’t found any major success at Miss World yet.  In general, Africa hasn’t particularly done that well in Miss World.  The first and the only black African beauty to do well in Miss World was Agbani Darego of Nigeria who won Miss World in 2001.  Apart from her, no black African beauty has won Miss World.  But yes, some women have come close.  Emma Walreus, Miss Botswana 2010 was 1st runner-up at Miss World.  Carranzar Shooter of Ghana was 2nd runner-up in Miss World 2013.  Let us hope Cote D’Ivoire’s contestant Mandjalia Gbané this year creates history with the first placement for her country in Miss World.
