Inna Mariam Patty, the new franchise owner of Miss Ghana
The Banquet Hall of the State House on Tuesday May 22, witnessed yet another historic milestone in the life of the Miss Ghana beauty pageant, Ghana’s oldest pageant that seeks to reward the most beautiful and intelligent young lady in the country.
The launch of Miss Ghana 2012 had long been anticipated to be a successful one, and yes it was, as the standards were raised to the admiration of patrons.
Even more refreshing was the impressive array of society’s high and mighty, socialites and the glitterati who graced what has already been said to be a night that was worth it.
Perhaps if the opening comment by Julia Morley, Executive Chairwoman of the Miss World Organization, that she was stunned by the near class act put up by the organizers, is anything to go by, then Ghana’s name was really etched in history on Tuesday.
She graced the occasion together with Ivian Sarcos, Miss World 2011, Miss Puerto Rico 2011 and Miss England 2011.
Ghana hosted for the very first time, Ivian Sarcos, the 22-year-old winner of the 2011 edition of the most prestigious beauty pageant in the world, Miss World, which the Miss Ghana pageant is affiliated to.
Sarcos and her team were in Ghana from May 19 to 23 to support Stephanie Karikari, Miss Ghana 2010 and joint winner of last year’s Miss World Beauty with a Purpose, to launch her project, as well as to attend the launch of the 2012 edition of the Miss Ghana beauty pageant.
It was a night full of great fun, glitz and calculated glamour as every patron made the most of it.
CEO of Exclusive Events Ghana, Inna Mariam Patty, underscored the importance her outfit was attaching to this year’s event, and for which reason they were working hard to ensure a smooth run when it went full scale in the coming weeks.
When Patty announced the special prize packages that would constitute the bedrock of this year’s event, it was received with loud cheers, and got most of Ghana’s corporate community who had thronged the Hall, nodding in appreciation.
Kojo Antwi, Mr. Music Man and Sherifa Gunu entertained the audience with their various hit songs, stagecraft and dancing skills.
