The outgoing queen of the Ghana’s Most Beautiful (GMB) pageant, Ekua Mends Bannerman, has extolled the competition for being the perfect launch pad for greatness.
Ekua who won the crown in 2019 for the Central Region said the GMB competition gives ladies the platform to display their beauty and culture to the world.
Speaking during the unveiling 16 constants for this year’s competition, the 2019 queen said the platform makes queens an asset to the world.
“GMB gives every young lady an outmost opportunity to display the rich culture to the world. Aside the exposure you get from being a queen, TV3 GMB grooms you to be a wonderful [person] to the world and asset to Ghana more especially to your respective regions,” Ekua explained.
To the 16 contestants, she said, “you are so blessed to be part of this program…I will tell all contestants to be themselves and represent their regions well.”
Attaining the highest honour of winning the crown, Ekua advised the 2020 contestants that, “no competition is easy but you just have to be yourself and believe in yourself.”
Ms Bannerman revealed that she had a ‘PPHH’ (Patience, Perseverance, Hard work, and Humbleness) principle which worked for her last year and the 16 could adopt it during their journey in the competition.
