It was the pinnacle of her beauty pageant career but it very nearly turned to tragedy for Miss Congo Dorcas Kasinde after her wig caught fire amid the pyrotechnics celebrating her coronation as Miss Africa 2018.

The 24-year-old Kasinde was mid-celebration with 2017 winner Gaseangwe Balopi from Botswana when a stray spark caused her magnificent wig to ignite, unleashing panicked gasps and screams from horrified onlookers.

Dorcas Kasinde had just been announced as the winner of Miss Africa 2018 when pyrotechnics were set off to celebrate her victory.

As Dorcas, who was representing Congo, cried tears of joy and hugged another contestant, her hair caught fire.

Footage shows the 24-year-old seeing the flames out the corner of her eye as a man runs over and begins patting her head.

Gasps can be heard from the audience while people rush to her aid.

Fortunately, Dorcas was not injured and she later posted a video assuring her fans she was ok.

Despite the drama, Dorcas was awarded $35,000 and a sport utility vehicle for winning the competition.
