Volta regional representative, Emefa Akosua Apeti was on Sunday night crowned winner of the sixth season of the Ghana’s Most Beautiful reality show.
She beat three other hopefuls, Hannah Ampomah Mensah (Ama) of the Central region, Eno Adwoa Anima (Ashanti region), and Afiba Anyanzua Anyanzu (Western region) to be crowned queen of a reality show which seeks to promote national unity amongst the unique regions, people, culture and values of Ghana.
After three months of live studio competitions and evictions, the finale at the National Theatre lived to its billing.
From the word go, it was Emefa who made her presence felt. She was the main competition on the night giving her competitors a run for her money.
During the talent segment of the competition, 23-year-old Emefa who is a graduate of the Tarkorado Polytechnic got Linda Ampah, a judge of the show, on her feet giving her a standing ovation.
Her drama and dance on national unity was just unmatched. She brought to bear a beautiful display of some of Ghana’s popular dances with a call on Ghanaians to unite as “we are one people.”
Veteran actor David Dontoh, also a judge for the finale, in his remarks said: “Indeed you have re-defined beauty for national development,” while Dzifa Glomeke, third judge, said: “you are very creative; you are just a wonderful performer.”
There were equally splendid performances from Afiba, who put up a show on domestic violence; Ama, who thrilled with an Asafo dance performance calling for peaceful elections; and Eno, a war drama also for peaceful December polls.
After a question and answer session, Emefa was declared winner after amassing about 42 percent of the total votes cast. Ama came second with about 22 percent of the votes while Eno and Afibia had 18 and 16 percent respectively.
For her prize, Emefa walked away with GHc7,000, a car and hampers from sponsors. Ama won GHc6,000 with hampers from sponsors.
There were also exciting performances from several renowned artistes including Dobble, Gifty Osei and Keche.
