The Travelodge Hotel Hall was filled with friends and fans of Vying contestants, in an aura of ecstasy in stud-live entertainment.
As the prologue-music bashed, the 7 contestants appeared on the prism-lit stage in sleek traditional “Kente” dresses displaying calculated dancing feet, and greeted with 'rompy' cheers by the audience, whilst the judges peeked on with vital statistical prudence.
The second stage appearance was one of 'mouth-watering' captivation, with romantic music in the background, the contestants appeared on the stage in their swim-suits protected only by a thin transparent linen and natural fiber. The audience roared in tantalizing sentiments and as if that wasn't a show enough, each contestant in an 'Olympic type of 'Synchro' begun withdrawing the protection displaying oil-streamlined physiques.
When time was subsequently apt for the exhibition of individual talents and cultural presentations, the natural ability that “well' on the inside of each contestant was unequivocally laid bare.
Talents were highlighted, ranging from profound philosophical oration, maxims, Divine truths current issues confronting society, dance depicting shackles of oppression to dance of victory.
In an interlude, George Fynn, the 'Miss Ghana-Canada Pageant' protagonist introduced to the audience the Board of Directors of the event, Mr. Kabu Asante, the CEO of 1st Capital Financial, Mr. Sam Aboagye Danso, and Dr. La-Kumi and each was presented with a plaque of pledge of responsibility. The Board will help steer the affairs of the Pageant.
The final segment of the merriment, question time had the contestants donned in colourful glittering onyx in accordance with their aspirations and braced for the verdict.
The moderator, George Fynn posed questions and each contestant not only responded, but each response was potentially unique, loaded with wisdom and philosophy.
