In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Akua Amoakowaa, CEO of Miss Golden Stool, said the pageant has cultural significance and intends to use the platform to promote the rich Akan culture and traditions.
“Miss Golden Stool is a culturally inclined beauty pageant that seeks to nurture and groom a bevy of young ladies who will use their physical beauty, intellect and extensive knowledge of their culture to impact lives positively, with an emphasis on culturally promoting the development of the Akan regions in areas of sanitation, tourism, health and other social and economic issues.
“Last year, we had performances from Kwaisey Pee, Obaapa Christy and Jayana and this year we have another set of prominent musicians to thrill patrons for the grand finale," she said.
Miss Golden Stool is organised by Jay N Jay Company Limited. Sponsors for the Miss Golden Stool are Darling lemon alcoholic beverage, Life maté furniture, Latex foam and Pomo tomatoe paste. Abrewanana won last year's edition.
