THE MUCH talked about Miss BA@50 Beauty Pageant finally hit the stage at the Sunyani Polytechnic Auditorium. In all, 16 ladies who prevailed at the district level competed for the crown.

Ama Tiwaa, representing the Sunyani Municipality, walked away with the crown.

Juliet Konamah from the Tano South District was adjudged the first runner-up, while Sarah Deaah from Wenchi Municipality was confirmed as the second runner-up.

As part of her prize, Miss Ama Tiwaa will receive a scholarship package to the USA among other mouth-watering prizes. The first runner-up will go to Canada, whereas the second runner-up will go to the South Africa.

All the other contestants received consolation prizes from Sleek Cosmetics. The Atebubu, Yeji, and Tano-North districts were not represented in the competition.

The special guest of honour for the event was the Second Lady of Ghana Mrs. Laudina Mahama. Also in attendance was the Regional Minister, Kwadwo Nyamekye-Marfo, party representatives, business executives, religious and traditional leaders, among many other dignitaries.

With Kwame Adinkrah as the MC, the audience was entertained with different bouts of jokes and dance performances. Invited artistes included OD4, Asem, and Slim Busterr with his stunning dancers.

Slim Busterr and his dancers rocked patrons till they were breathless for more. Asem changed the atmosphere in the auditorium when he made his entry from the crowd. The hip life artiste kept the crowd on their feet until he left the stage.

In a related development, a section of the crowd expressed their disappointment with the judge’s final decision. The crowd contended that Ms. Tiwaa could not express herself properly in the English language.

According to audience members, the delegates kept deviating from the questions asked, with some of them having difficulty expressing themselves in English.

They also said although the beauty pageantry was not as competitive as it should have been as the region celebrates its birthday, the organization was up to standard.
