Published

on

AKPENE Diata Hoggar, a model, blogger and entrepreneur was on Saturday, September 15, 2018, crowned winner of the 2018 Miss Universe Ghana contest held at the plush Labadi Beach Hotel, Accra, in an atmosphere of pure colour and splendour.

Akpene, who is also a Management Information Systems (MIS) graduate, beat nine other beauties in what was described largely as a highly competitive event, to pick the coveted title and the sole ticket to represent Ghana at this year’s Miss Universe international pageant slated for Bangkok, Thailand in December.

She also received a brand new car from 4FK Motorsport which is owned by Ghanaian international soccer star, Sulley Muntari, a five-week leadership programme with YALI (Young African Leadership Initiative), six months publicity and a spread in the Glam Magazine, among other amazing prizes.

The tall and cordial model, who represented the Brong Ahafo Region in the middle belt of Ghana, excellently promoted the tourism sites and cultural heritage of the region, attracting thunderous applause from the obviously impressed audience.

Akpene excitedly expressed her gratitude to MALZ Promotions, the organisers of the event, for their professionalism, and graciously congratulated the other contestants for the healthy competition.

Vanessa Tekor Akuetteh, a budding paralegal and model, who represented the Western Region was voted the first runner-up, while Sylvia Naa Morkor Commodore, a second-year Business Administration undergraduate, who represented the Upper West Region picked the second runner-up prize.

All the contestants put up great performances in the various segments of the competition, promoting the culture and tourism products of Ghana while displaying their individual talents in singing, dancing etc.

Sporting some intricate designs cut and stitched by some of Ghana’s talented designers, the contestants displayed great sense of fashion, intelligence and eloquence as they answered questions from the judges to test their knowledge about various issues in society, after which five were shortlisted to vie for the crown.

The all-round great performances by the contestants made it quite difficult for the five judges to decide the top three from the best five contestants. Indeed, for the first time in the history of the Miss Universe Ghana pageant, there was a tie, which meant that instead of choosing the ultimate winner from the best three finalists, she was picked from four.

The judges on the night were Sean Guy, a Lifestyle Coach, Yvonne Nelson, Actress and Entrepreneur, Manuela Osk, former Miss Universe Iceland, Shirley Frimpong-Manso, Movie Director/Producer, and Emmanuel Kojo Jones-Mensah, a Real Estate Developer.

The other contestants were Michealina Mary Stampoulous Dankwa, Ashanti Region; Pascalina Nuamah Yeboah, Central Region; Daisy Obeng Nkansah, Eastern Region; Gifty Nyamekye Quansah, Greater Accra Region; Anita Sampana, Northern Region; Naa Yemotiokor Odoi, Upper East Region and Regina Afiba Dadzie, who represented the Volta Region.

The audience, made up of the creme-de-la-creme of the country were serenaded by top Ghanaian musicians, Adina and King Promise, while they enjoyed some fine champagne and a three-course plated meal.

The Noryam Dance Group spiced up the event with some sprightly traditional drumming and dancing that gave the show an authentic Ghanaian touch.

The contestants were clothed by some of the finest designers in the country, including C’est Dora, Quophi Akotuah, Yartel Gh, Saa Dia, and Nhyira. The event was organized by MALZ Promotions, owned by Menaye Donkor Muntari, who is also the National Director for Miss Universe, Ghana.

The Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Mrs Catherine Afeku, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Mr Akwasi Agyemang, a former Minister of Finance, Dr, Kwesi Botchwey and many Ghanaian personalities graced the event, which was aired live on Joy Prime TV, a media sponsor of the pageant.

The main sponsors were Princess Paa, Devtraco Plus, Labadi Beach Hotel, 4FK Motorsport, SHEY by Menaye, Woodin and Belaire champagne.

Published

on

German-born Ghanaian sisters, Nana and Afua Dabanka, created the luxury footwear label, MONAA, in honor of their royal Ashanti heritage. As young girls, Nana and Afua were completely captivated by their father’s handmade leather Ohenema slippers as well as their mother’s intricately woven Kente silk ensembles.

The sisters travel from New York to London. They grew up in the small town Wetter in German. To maintain strong family ties, they travel regularly to Ghana.

Made in Ghana by expert artisans, MONAA sandals are constructed from the finest, globally sourced leathers, and refined with African-inspired embellishments. Exquisitely handcrafted, MONAA reflects the designers’ transcontinental sensibility.

The name MONAA combines Afua’s nickname, “Mo” with “Naa”, the affectionate abbreviation of Nana. Likewise, the brand combines craftsmanship steeped in tradition but designed with a global perspective. Hence, the sisters present a luxurious new footwear option and a personal labor of love: Made in Ghana, for the customer who makes herself at home anywhere in the world she may be.
