Bianca Onoh is a businesswoman and socialite, perhaps best remembered as the wife of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu the Ikemba of Nnewi and former Biafran Leader.
The daughter of former Anambra state governor Christian Onoh and a Law graduate of the University of Nigeria, Bianca won the 1988 edition of the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant, representing Abuja. Although she was crowned in 1988, Onoh reigned for most of 1989 as the pageant had taken place late the previous year. During this time, she represented her country in Miss Universe, but achieved greater success by winning the Nigerian version of Miss Intercontinental.
Bianca is now married to Ojukwu, and the couple have children together. She divides her time between her home and cosmetics business Bianca Blend, in Enugu. She is also in charge of the non-government organisation Hope House Trust, centred towards rehabilitating juvenile offenders in Enugu.
