The grand finale of the 19th edition of the Miss Malaika beauty pageant is set to come off at the Grand Arena inside the Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday, October 30.

It's been several weeks of grooming and undertaking a variety of tasks and now 10 young ladies will be battling it out to take the title as Miss Malaika.

The 10 finalists are 21-year-old Manuella Floris Lazo; 24-year-old Bintou Keita; Asia Musah (21); Abena Danquah Okai (22); Ama Tutuwaa Osei-Akoto (19); Precious Yankson (23); Hillary Tsar (21); 20-year-old Doreen Osei Tutu; 24-year-old Winifred Bambil and Iris Cudjoe (24).

According to the CEO of Charterhouse, organisers of the pageant, Therasa Ayoade, patrons should come expecting to be thrilled.

“The night will be full of glitz, glamour and talent display as the 10 intelligent ladies battle it out for the car, cash and crown.

"As has been the tradition for Miss Malaika Ghana over the years, the ladies have gone through an intensive journey of rediscovery and grooming in preparation for the finals where one will be selected to succeed the reigning queen Jasmine Djang,” she told Graphic Showbiz.  

She added, “As we all know, this platform has over the years groomed young ladies to do exploits and that is something we are not relenting on.

"However, this year's is a bit different because we added some new concepts to our grooming process. All these are to help them not only to shine on the pageant platform but in the world as a whole. We cannot wait for the girls to show the world how they have transformed.”

Apart from the contestants showing off their talents and what they have learnt in the various segment on the night, there will also be performances by some of Ghana’s finest acts such as Adina, Mr Drew, Abiana, Sefa among others.
