Speculation is rife that the 25-year-old financial advisor, Kachote, might lose her crown this week after she confirmed that the circulating pictures are hers.

However, Kachote, attacked for being ugly says they were taken ‘sometime back’ when she was drunk.

She told H-Metro that she was photographed when she went for sleep over at her ex-boyfriend place.

“I have always suspected that those pictures would circulate but it happened a long time ago and I believe my past does not determine where I am going,” she said.


“I once hanged out with a guy whom I was dating at that time, we went to his place and we had some drinks and I had no control over everything that happened during that night because I was under the influence of alcohol.

“I was hoping the pictures would have been deleted by now since it happened a long time ago and I last spoke to the guy a year ago and I no longer have anything to do with him since what we had ended a long time ago,” she added.
