It is not interesting to refer to a person as ugly and crowned it, but there is no other option than accepting a fact. For many years, the ugliest person title has been rotated from one person to another. Godfrey Baguma is the one holding the crown and has also won the Guinness World Record for his disproportioned appearances.

Godfrey is a man from Uganda, now gaining worldwide recognition. He was not born as ugly as he is now, but as time passed, he discovered that his face started to look strange to others. As per the report of Tony Wilson, the head of the medical practitioner in Uganda, Godfrey suffered from Fibrodysplasia, a rare condition that makes him look like a strange creature. This will affect his growth and placement of the cell tissues, which will look like abnormalities in his lead and the other part of the brain.

Godfrey Baguma is a professional shoemaker. Because of the barely he has met, he ended his shoemaker profession and decided to participate in the world’s ugliest man competition.

In many countries, some people will hold the title of the ugliest person in the world. Countries like Zimbabwe will contest competitions yearly to celebrate beauty in ugliness, motivating people to join the contest. But in reality, beauty lies on the inside, not the outside. Most people will look for a pleasant appearance before they can treat you nicely.

Some people in the above list were not born ugly; some have become ugly because of sickness and health conditions. Understanding that ugly people should be encouraged to achieve their dreams is essential. As no one person has not seen all the faces of the more than seven billion people in the world, the list of the ugliest people will change.
