The Miss Blantyre Beauty Pageant returns this Friday night at Malawi Sun Hotel where 12 contestants from the commercial capital are expected to compete for the crown.
Confirming the news to Nyasa Times, Kelvin Sulugwe, Communications and Public Relations Manager for the RedRose who are the organizers of the event, said all is set for the final and all girls are ready for the title.
“The models recruitment process was never easy as we received so many applications from interested girls. We had a number of issues which we considered before coming up with the final list.
“In short, we were looking for girls with a passion for youth development and charity related projects. MSCE was an entry point and a consideration was given to school leavers,” said Sulugwe in a statement seen by Nyasa Times.
He added that girls who have once mothered babies were withdrawn from the contest but some of them, after demonstrating a good deal of commitment, have been given contracts to model under RedRose.
The event would be spiced up with live performances of the shortlisted artists who have signed a contract with them like; Blajak, Theo Thomson, Pon G and Weapon, Black Face Family and Lady Pace, Excess and Ill City, Aycee James and Bucci.
The event is expected to be hosted by MBC’s Hope Chisanu popularly known as Uncle Bemberezi. An after party would be hosted at Mibawa Café on Saturday, 7th December from 8 pm and it will feature live performances by Mibawa Band and Pon G & Weapon who are the guys behind Miss Blantyre’s Theme song.<
