Ngozi Nicholls “Miss Nigeria”, Joeana McCarthy “Miss Ghana”, Patricia Clarke “Miss Cameron”, Juliana Josepha “Miss Liberia” and Zemone Morton “Miss Sierra Leone”, according to information reaching MiyVue.com, are making final preparations for the show which is to take place at Carnival Village at 8:00 p.m. sharp.
The fabulous five will make appearances in five segments, four of which are judged. The judged segments are: Introduction, Creative Wear, Talent and African Wear. The evening will open with the Fanfare segment, which will allow patrons to familiarise themselves with the contestants. This segment, however, will not be judged.
MiyVue.com, spoke with the ladies who indicated that some have previous experience in the pageantry arena while others had not. They noted, however, that the educational value of the experience is one which they value. They noted that prior to entering for the show, they were not aware of certain experiences which their ancestors may have gone through or were not aware of the different says in which their ancestors performed everyday tasks.
The CFBC students further explained that they are – having obtained this information – somewhat concerned because the unity and bond which their forefathers had, and that which they endeavoured to hand down to subsequent generations is almost non-existent.
Patrons of the event are promised a night of “culture and energy” and in addition to the appearances by the contestants, a packed sideshow is being organised which will see performances from Nicha-B, Pepper Ranks, H2O, Upstairs STC, Footsey, Jah Fire, Even 3, DJ Flames, CFBC Dance Ensemble and Pinocchio.
A fashion show featuring African designs by ‘Shakki’ is planned as part of the evening.
Attractive prizes are up for grabs and the competition promises to be quite entertaining.
