Known as VIEN ORITSEBEMIGHO TETSOLA, she was born on the 30th of August to the families of Emmanuel Awatefe-Tetsola of Obonteghareda Village in Warri North Local Government Area and Gladys Urowoli Tetsola (nee Omatsola) of Aghogin Omatsola family of Usele, Warri South Local Government Area both of Delta State.

Born in Eku Baptist Hospital, Eku Delta State, into a family of six children, (four boys and two girls), as the fourth child and first girl. Young Vien enjoyed a happy and disciplined childhood with Baptist undertones.


She had her early education at Erigbe Primary School Agbor and at Baptist Girls’ High School Agbor. She completed her Secondary School Education at Lydia Secondary School in Benin City, and proceeded to the Lagos State University where she obtained a B.Sc in Mass Communications.


She was crowned Miss Nigeria in February 2000 (a pageant organized by the Daily Times of Nigeria, to promote the dignity of womanhood) and thus became the Nations First National Beauty Queen in the New Millennium. She was tagged “the Millennium Queen”.



Unknown to the general public was a ‘‘Vow of Consecration of Service’’ made unto God that brought about the emergence of a Millennium Queen. She prayed unto God (like Hannah did in 1 Samuel chapter one verse eleven), saying:

‘‘LORD, if You will make me Miss. Nigeria I will serve You. With the crown I will serve You, with my life I will worship You.’’

Her reign as Miss Nigeria 2000 was described as eventful, yet, scandal free. From her campaign against the spread of HIV/AIDS, to her visit and support for pipeline fire disaster victims in Delta State and to her love and care for the less privileged in the society.

She symbolized ‘the Spirit of Hope’ for the Country’s future.

In execution of her long-held aspiration to contribute positively to the Nigerian society, Vien immediately established the Africa Alert Foundation, a non-governmental organization dedicated to the campaign against the spread of HIV/AIDS and to the care of the less privileged.

 The Miss Nigeria 2000 Crowning was a Fore-shadow of the fullness of things to come… having attained that victory by a Vow (vowing her life and service to God upon being crowned Queen), Vien found herself open to the realm of the invisible and widespread revelation, for the LORD began to reveal Himself to Her by His Word and Holy Spirit;

‘‘For surely, the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secrets to His servants the prophets, and when the Lord God has spoken, who can but prophesy?’’ (Amos 3:7-8)

God has given these visions and revelations as signs that He is working amongst us. He has given these revelations, to give us hope, to encourage us and to show us that He is with us


At the age of thirty, Vien received a call
from the Lord to enter into the Ministry of the Christ, as a witness to the
people, a leader and commander for the people…

your ear, and come unto ME:

hear, and your soul
shall live; and

I will make an
everlasting covenant with you,

even the sure mercies
of David.


Behold, I have given him
for a witness to the people,

a leader and commander
to the people.


Behold, thou shalt call
a nation that thou knowest not,

and nations that knew
not thee shall run unto thee

because of the LORD thy

and for the Holy One of
Israel; for HE hath glorified thee.’’

Isaiah 55:3-5


… and so, laying aside every weight, she forsook all and began to run with endurance the race that was set before her, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of her faith, who for the joy that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

‘‘Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about

with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every

weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;

who for the JOY that was set before Him endured the CROSS, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God’’.               -Hebrews 12:1-2
