Chinenye Akinlade (born Chinenye Ivy Ochuba) is a former beauty queen.
Born into a family of ten, Chinenye is the seventh of eight children. After finishing secondary school at Regan Memorial Secondary School, she attempted to gain admission to university. It was during this time the eighteen year-old Chinenye won the 2002 edition of Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, making her eligible to represent the country at international pageants.
Despite being a favourite for the Miss Universe 2002 crown, she failed to make the Top Ten, but fared better at the Miss World pageant in the same year where she was a finalist, as well as African Continental Queen of Beauty.
Formerly a student at the University of Lagos, Akinlade completed her degree in Accounting and Financing at the University of Greenwich, London in 2008. She returned to Nigeria, where she married businessman Kunle Akinlade, and works for oil company Exxon Mobil.
