Poly student wins Miss Eastern title

NINETEEN year old Euphemia Aku Sika Ahedor, a student of Koforidua Polytechnic, last Saturday became the first regional beauty queen to book her place in the Club Pleasure 2002 Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant.

Euphemia made a strong showing to beat seven other lady contestants to take the regional beauty queen title as well as a ? 500,000 cash prize and sponsors’ products.

Together with Euphemia to represent the Eastern Region at the Miss Ghana 2002 final is another student, 22 year-old Hamiza Sahadatu Sename, who placed second and took away a cash prize of ?450,000. In the dance segment of the three-tier Club Pleasure package, Ronald Parry the two- time regional dance champion was beaten to second place by female new entrant Hilda Eunice Okai, who danced her way to a cash prize of ?500,000 and an opportunity to represent Eastern Region at the National Dance Final. In all, 20 dancers participated in the dance contest, which required each contenstant to do highlife and also dance to a "mystry song".

Derrick Ibrahim, 19, singing a song about HIV/AIDS, got the nod of the judges and became the regional champion in the Hip-life Talent Championship. He also had ?500,000 as his cash prize.

An evening of fun and entertainment, the regional package comprised music , dance, beauty and a fasion segment which showcased the creations of two young designers using exclusively Akosombo Textiles. On stage as guest artiste was Okomfo, whose popularity seems to have preceeded him to Koforidua as he was virtually mobbed by fans when he struck his popular "Kwaadee" song.
