GMB finals not so great — Oscar Provencal

Oscar Provencal

Since he joined the judging panel for Ghana’s Most Beautiful 2017, Oscar Provencal had been the one judge who always pushed for something extra from the girls during their performances so his expectations were high for the finals but he was disappointed.

According to him, he was tired of the ladies’ acts because they were nothing new from what they had done over the 13-week run.

“I am not impressed with this year’s GMB finals, I was expecting something different from the usual that I have witnessed since the show started. What you did today is not something I have not seen before.

I wanted you girls to come out of your comfort zones and give me the wow factor. The final tonight has not been the best,” Oscar stated after the show ended.

He also expressed his disappointment during the Question and Answer segment. “I thought the organisers were going to give us the opportunity to ask follow up questions on the issues the ladies raised while answering questions.

For me, it would have given us the chance to dig deeper into some of the things they said,” he noted.

His disappointment aside, he thanked the organisers for giving him the opportunity to be part of a great show that seeks to project the African culture.

“I am very grateful and I enjoyed being a part of the family. In recent times that our youth seem to be drifting away from what we stand for as Ghanaians in terms of culture, GMB has set the pace.

All you girls are winners in your own right, I hope you lift the flag of GMB high by being good examples,” he said.

This year’s edition of Ghana’s Most Beautiful was one full of surprises, disappointment but exciting moments too and it was crowned with Zeinab from the Northern Region’s victory.

The well attended show hosted at the Accra International Conference Centr(AICC) saw the contestants showing off their modeling skills in various outfits as well as performing mini dramas on the various social issues they would embark on if they won the title.

While at all these, they were cheered on by their fans and representatives from the regions they represented.

The event, compered by Johnnie Hughes and Emefa Adeti was laced with music and dance performances.

Raising the bar, Kuami Eugene did justice to his songs, Angela, Boom Bang Bang and Beyeye which got everyone on their feet including all three judges.

Mzvee was good with her short but well received performance and actor cum dancer, Kobi Rana gave the audience a great performance with an energetic dance and skit with Kalybos and Korkor of Afia Schwarzenegger fame.

Edem was the last to perform and also did great by taking us back into time with some his hit songs like Over and Nyornuvi.
