Another African queen targets global crownfrom RUSSELL ADADEVOH in Accra, Ghana
ACCRA- MISS Universe Ghana, Abena Akuaba Appiah, is confident of landing the global crown when the Miss Universe final is held in Miami, Florida later this month.
The event is scheduled for January 25.
“I am excited at the opportunity to represent my country. I can only ask for God’s guidance and favour ahead of the finals,” Appiah said when asked about her chances.
She left the country last Friday for America with locals wishing her well ahead of the competition that has drawn 90 models.
“Abena is naturally beautiful and intelligent, so I can safely confirm that she is the next Miss Universe.
“If you look at her, you see a naturally talented girl,” said a parent, Marcia Mensah in an interview with CAJ News Ghana Bureau.
If Appiah, an Afropop musician, wins the coveted Miss Universe, it will be the second in a row that an African beauty queen wins a global competition.
South Africa’s Rolene Strauss was crowned Miss World in England last month.
