To test the readiness of Malaika delegates to pursue the Malaria
eradication campaign when they eventually assume the Malaika crown,
last week’s challenge saw the ladies separated into groups of five and
sent to some Junior High Schools to preach Malaria prevention and

This edition of the series which was aired on GTV gave viewers a good insight into the more serious side of the contestants and their determination to affect their community positively.

The delegates simplified the message to fit the audience and even went to the extent of putting up short sketches to carry their message across effectively.

Prior to this, the ladies took part in a quiz on general knowledge and “Miss Intelligentsia” the delegate who emerged tops, in this case Akosua, was exempted from the week’s eviction.

With two more evictions to go before the final of the Miss Malaika reality beauty series, the competition waved an emotional goodbye to another pretty delegate last week. Twenty-year-old Nadra Osman became the fourth delegate to exit the competition leaving 12, 10 of whom will go for the final.

Out of that 10, one contestant will take the prestigious crown and drive home a brand new KIA saloon car.

Nadra was at the bottom three with Christine and Ama and the Godmothers exercised their power to save one delegate from eviction by choosing Ama to stay and when the chips fell, it was Nadra who had to leave the competition. She follows Naa Yemoley, Sandra and Semira.

In association with Travel Bureau, Lux, Vimto, Gino, Forever Easy, MTN, KIA, UB, Allure, and Darling, Charterhouse hope to choose a Malaika Queen who apart from being the embodiment of Ghanaian and Africa beauty, is also capable of coming into her own.

The audience is encouraged to vote their favourites to stay in the competition because later on in the month, the 10 finalists will get the once in a life time opportunity to go to Dubai.

Who leaves the competition next depends largely on votes from viewers who can keep a date with the show on GTV every Sunday at 2:30 PM and on Wednesdays at 9:30pm.
