After weeks of laborious sessions from judges- William Asiedu, Hamamat Montia and Karen Kane they’ve been able to cut down the selected 300 ladies and the number watered down to the final 16 leading to organisers of the pageant unveiling its finalists for this year’s competition.
The 16 delegates were selected from 300 young ladies who anticipated entry into the Miss Malaika House.
The 16 finalist are Mamatah Abdul-Rahmaan, Dionne Addofoly, Gifty Akweley Amarteifio, Kumang Lugu-Zuri, Kuukua Korsah, Jedidah Ama Biney, Karen Cofie, Doreen Essilfie and Beverly Efua Aidoo.
The rest includes Suweida Alhassan, Nana Antwiwaa Nuamah, Selinam Kwadzodza, Martha Daniels, Suraya Kariyama, Kezia Acquah and Dorothy Osei.
According to Miss Hamamat Montia who won the pageant in 2006, the judges settled on the final 16 based on this year’s theme, Beautiful Inside Out.
“We didn’t want ladies to just compete for a crown. We were looking for a total package made up of beauty, intelligence and gracefulness and we believe the final contestants reflect what we are looking for in a Malaika queen,” -Miss Hamamat Montia
Miss Malaika 2015 is a GhOne Entertainment TV production.
