Songstress Feli Nuna is not happy with herself after failing to take Miss Ghana competition serious when she was a contestant seven years ago.
The young lady who was one of the 20 finalists for Miss Ghana 2010 in a chat with MzGee on Hitz FM’s ‘Showbiz This Week’ entertainment show disclosed that she joined the beauty pageant because she wanted a well-respected platform to exhibit her talent for the world to know that she has a gift. The ‘I Like Am’ hitmaker added that she also wanted a stage to enhance her stagecraft since she wanted to be a musician so that things will not be difficult for her when she becomes the mainstream artiste she has always wanted to be.
Born Felicia Nuna Akosua Tawiah, the singer believes she could have won the 2010 edition of the beauty pageant but the only mistake she committed seven years ago was not taking Miss Ghana serious. She told MzGee that she has regretted not taking the event serious when she had the chance to compete with other 19 ladies for the prestigous crown.
“I was actually singing and rapping before Miss Ghana and I had always loved the (Miss Ghana) stage. I had also wanted to get accustomed to the stage and crowd because I knew that I want to do music and I’ll be performing n front of million people.
I’m sure I would have won Miss Ghana but I didn’t take it too seriously. I always bash myself for it because I was just having fun and wanted only the stage. I didn’t really care about the whole pageant.
It was fun because we got to network and meet new people. I was in the top 20 but I wasn’t part of the top three queens but it was a great experience. I learnt a lot as a woman.” she said.
