I feel no pressure — Miss Universe Ghana
Miss Universe Ghana 2013, Hanniel Jamin last Tuesday evening left Ghana for Russia, where she will participate in the Miss Universe finals scheduled for November 5 and 9.
During a brief press interaction at the Kotoka International Airport before her departure, she hinted that she wasn’t pressured by the success of Miss Ghana 2012, Naa Okailey Shooter who placed third at Miss World 2013 and also won Miss World Africa.
Hanniel Jamin, said that she could be the ultimate winner Miss Universe, which is the rival pageant for Miss World. ‘I don’t feel pressured because I know that if Naa Okailey Shooter could place second runner-up at Miss World then I can also do better. I am sure by the special grace of God, I can become the winner of Miss Universe.’
Her departure for Russia comes after media reports that she would not be representing Ghana in the Miss Universe finals.The speculations started when the 19-year old posted on Facebook an alleged plan to replace her with another person at the finals in Russia.
She wrote: ‘Someone is trying to impersonate me, Hanniel Jamin by representing me as the Miss Universe Ghana 2013 at the Miss Universe Int’l 2013 pageant in Moscow Russia.
Now I see why I was kidnapped on September 3. Please Miss Universe Organisation Worldwide, Pageantology, Missosology, Russian Embassy, Ghanaian and Russian Immigration, and the Media please take note.’
She also alleged that one of her runners-up was trying to take her place at the international finals: ‘No matter how hard ‘you’ the Miss Universe Ghana 2013 beauty pageant runner-up tries to take my place, you will never succeed
‘You will always remain my runner-up besides you can never steal my position because I will make sure you and the people manipulating things are jailed. Hmmm, now I understand why my passport has been seized by the so-called manipulators since 2 months and my visa has not yet been processed.’
Before leaving the Kotoka International Airport, Hanniel Jamin however apologised for the confusion. She said: ‘On behalf of the organisers of Miss Universe, RAC (Roberta Annan Consulting) and Miss Universe Ghana, we want to apologise for all that confusion. We want to state that I, Hanniel Jamin, Miss Universe Ghana will be representing Ghana in Russia and not any other person.’
The 62nd edition of the Miss Universe pageant will be taking place in Russia for the first time at Crocus City Hall on Russia on November 9. The show is divided into two stages: November 5-Preliminary Show and November 9-Final.
