After weeks of rigorous grooming and interview sessions, 10 ladies have been selected to represent the nation’s various regions at this year’s Ghana’s Most Beautiful (GMB) pageant, an initiative of TV3 Network.
The announcement to that effect was made at a briefing hosted by radio and television presenter, Johnny Hughes last Friday in the Executive Theatre of TV3 Network in Accra.
Talking to Showbiz, the longest- serving judge on the pageant’s panel, Mrs. Linda Ampah, said she was impressed with how the ladies had been transformed after the grooming sessios.
“The zeal to be in the final 10 was encouraging. Though it was difficult for us to make the final selection, we are glad we did it. We trust we have selected the best to represent each region,” she said.
She wished the ladies well and urged them to not just work toward the crown but to better themselves.
“The crown is important but it is not about it all the time. They should make it a point to leave the contest better than they so they can be agents of change in our society.”
Auditions for this year’s GMB were held in Tamale, Ho, Kumasi and Accra. The final 10 were chosen out of the 23 that made it to the semi-final stage.
The 10 final contestants are Tsekumah Christine Edem, 24, (Volta Region); Helena- Annabella Asare-Bediako, 25, (Ashanti Region); Shaguffa Pelpuo Adams, 26, (Upper West Region); Ivy Nhanna Serwaa Sefa- Boateng, 23, ( Eastern Region) and Juliet Mensah, 23, ( Brong Ahafo Region).
The rest are Helena Baaba Botchway, 26, (Central Region); Dorcas Asante Afful, 25, (Western Region); Henrietta Naa Ayeley Mensah, 23, (Greater Accra Region); Helen Talata Akongzirigo Azitariga Atinganma, 23, (Upper East Region) and Zeinab Abdul Mumin, 23, (Northern Region).
