Naa Okailey To Uplift Miss Ghana Brand
The Minister for Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare, last Friday, urged Naa Okailey Shooter, Ghana’s representative at this year’s Miss World to work hard to uplift the Miss Ghana brand and its Beauty with a Purpose agenda.
Speaking at a welcome party held at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel to honour and celebrate Naa Shooter, who placed third at this year’s Miss World Beauty pageant held in Indonesia recently, the minister stressed that ‘the creative industry is booming and the huge revenue generation capacity for tourism and related sectors cannot be over emphasized.’
The honourable Minister used the occasion to reiterate her outfit’s belief that ‘Ghana is ready to host such a prestigious event.’
Ghana placed a historic third position, with Miss Shooter becoming the new Miss World Africa. She is also the first Ghanaian representative to get far in the competition’s 63rd history.
The welcome party attracted a number of personalities including the Mayor of Accra, Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije, Reginald Laryea, former franchise holder of Miss Ghana, Togbe Afede and Constance Swaniker of Accents and Arts, among a host of media personalities and known faces.
Miss Shooter, who was elegantly dressed on the night, relived her experience at the World event, saying ‘the greatest part of this entire experience was the privilege to share the rich cultural heritage and beauty of Ghana with the rest of the world.’
‘This victory,’ she said, ‘is not for me alone but for all Ghanaians and Africans at large.’ She also thanked persons, institutions, her parents, family and friends for their support throughout her journey to the event.
