MISS AFRICA 2018 CALABAR – WHO WILL EMERGE THE CROWNED QUEEN?
The 3rd edition of Miss Africa Calabar is upon us, who will become the crowned queen for the most prestigious Africa beauty pageant? The 2018/2019 edition is tagged Africanism. Now in its third year, this event produces some of the most glamorous moments each year.
I had a conversation with Femi Oyelade– Brand Consultant, Miss Africa Organisation, to talk about the event and the plan for this year.
“The Miss Africa Pageant, an initiative of the Cross State Government is created to add value to the annual Christmas Festival/Carnival Calabar. This brand is geared towards promoting the annual theme of the Festival. The 1st and the 2nd Editions were themed around Climate Change in 2016 and Migration in 2017 respectively. The theme was used to promote eco-lifestyle and create awareness for the possible ways to mitigate the negative effects of climate change, making African communities more habitable as against irregular Migration that may lead to desolation of our Motherland. It’s the amalgamation of beauty and brain.
The Third Edition is slated for the 27th of December 2018 and will be hosted by His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Cross River State, Prof. Senator Ben Ayade, at the Calabar International Convention Centre, Cross River State, Nigeria. It promises to host over 30 African Beauties and Brains across Africa with the Carnival theme; AFRICANISM, telling the true stories of Africa and Africans, promoting our cultural heritage and investment opportunities.
The contestants would be camped for 3weeks where they will be mentored, drilled and taught how to speak, stand tall on the African walk way with the heels of confidence and also walk the talk respectively, becoming a voice and face of positive change across communities. The grand finale would crown the Third Miss Africa Queen that would lead other contestants in advocating for a greener and sustainable Africa that is habitable, reducing the need to migrate, reducing the negative effects climate change possess on our motherland by creating awareness on how to reduce, reuse and recycle non degradable waste products, and more importantly, promoting Africa Positively to the world at large.
The auditions for this year’s pageant will be done all in the month of November. It begins today 3rd of November 2018 in Botswana. Next will be South Africa (8th – 9th) , Lagos(15th) and Abuja(17th). The auditioning will end in Calabar on the 21st where the list of the finale contestants will be unveiled” – Femi Oyelade
