Naa Dedei Botchway, representing the Greater Accra Region has been crowned the winner of the 2020 Ghana’s Most Beautiful beauty pageant.
Naa who is a former student of Central University and the Ghana Institute of Journalism walked away with the crown, a car and cash prize of Ghc12,000 at the grand finale of the popular beauty show.
Abena from the Ahafo region was the first runner up and Volta Region’s Zuzu came in as the second runner up and Norther Region’s Zuzu won the 5th position.
With COVID 19 still present in the country, that didn’t take away the fun and excitement that was filled in the studios where the finals were held with strict protocols being followed.
Last year, the crown was taken by Ekua Mends in the Central Region but it’s obvious they couldn’t retain the crown this year.
Naa’s performance began as the fifth on the night as the finalists, in the first round, advocated the need for unity without recourse to one language.
She pressed home the fact that Ghana already has whatever it needs for development “and the key to the nation’s development is our attitude and mindset and not nationalizing one language.”
She continued in the second round, which was themed peace ahead of the elections, as a victim of electoral violence.
She emphasised that if the citizens are together, democracy will thrive.
“Our democracy should work, our peace depends on us and let us rise above and let us stand together.”
In the third and final round, she answered a question on the state of the Free Senior High School programme of the current government, a promise much talked about by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) while in opposition.
The three-time Star Performer in this year’s show gave thumbs-up to the programme but called for the smoothening of the rough edges as regards the double-track policy that it has degenerated to.
At the end, Naa got the crown, from heaven, as the enveloped results dropped from the skies.
Aside that piece of silverware and the car, she will also embark on an all-expense-paid trip to Dubai, one year free supply of GTP products and a year’s supply of airtime from AirtelTigo.
