Eight more immaculate, alluring, intelligent and beautiful ladies have qualified for the national finals of this year's Miss Ghana beauty pageant.
This brings to twenty, the complete number of contestants selected for the national finals, set to be held in September.
At the last of three nationwide zonal auditions held in Accra over the weekend, the Capital's trendy, sophisticated, and witty young ladies between the ages of 18 and 25, turned up in their numbers to audition for what would later go down as a keenly contested selection process.
After three days of engaging the contestants in various tasks including but not limited to marketing activation, and speech and oral presentation, the judges including AMAA award-winning actor Majid Michel, television presenter Nana Aba Anamoah, Barrak El-Mahmoud, a professional photographer, Ali Jihami of Ghandour Cosmetics and Inna Maryam Patty of Exclusive Events Ghana, were convinced at the depth of quality, knowledge and finesse displayed by the eight out of the over 300 who auditioned.
The eight finalists include a 22 year-old Medical student of the University of Ghana Carranzer Naa Okailey Shooter, Dzifa Dellor, 21, also of the University of Ghana, Jennifer Annan, 22, of the University of Development Studies, Nadia Ntanu, 23, of the Pentecost University in Accra, Nana Foriwaa Oppong, 23 of the Central University College, Adwoa Ofori Afriyie, 21, of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Abena Apiah , 19, and Rosaline Okoro, 23, also of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
This year Ghana's Capital, Accra, is represented by Naa and Abena while Afriyie and Nadia represent the Western Region. The Central Region is fully represented by the able heads of Foriwaa and Rosaline while the adorable Dzifa and lovely Jennifer will be seeking to bring glory to the Volta Region.
Apart from the Accra (Southern Belt) auditions, similar exercises were also held in Kumasi (Middle Belt) and in Tamale (Northern Belt) to select deserving and worthy finalists for this year's event.
