African Pride Contest Winner with R&B singer Miguel

I’m sure you heard about the African Pride contest where you win a trip to Atlanta, a makeover by their glam squad, and an awesome dinner with singer Miguel. I always look at big contests and think…no one really wins. You rarely see pictures of the winner(s) for contest. Well Raime was a lucky lady and won the fabulous Grand Prize. Congrats to Raime.
