Lucila Benita was crowned Miss Mundo Guinea Ecuatorial 2021 at the finals held on 28th August 2021 at El Retiro Riaba as she became the official representative of Equatorial Guinea at the upcoming edition of Miss World. She succeeds Miss Ecuatorial Guinea 2019 Janet Ortiz Oyono.

Lucila is 21 years of age and is also known as Gladys Adjaba. She hails from Malabo, Bioko Norte, Equatorial Guinea and currently lives in Akonibe, Equatorial Guinea. A fluent speaker of Spanish and English, Benita is definitely  going to be a strong representative of her country at an international stage.



Benita is a pre-university student. She represented Akonibe at Miss Guinea Ecuatorial 2021. She is the second Malabo resident to hold the Miss Mundo Guinea Ecuatorial title following Djanet Ortiz Oyono who won in 2019.

Benita will now represent her country at Miss World 2021 on 16th December 2021 at the Coca-Cola Music Hall in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She will be the eighth woman to represent Equatorial Guinea in Miss World. If she finishes at Miss World 2021 at least in the quarterfinals, she will be the first woman from Equatorial Guinea to place in Miss World.
