A few weeks back I was contacted by the organiser of the first ever Miss Cameroon South Africa pageant and she asked if I could spread the word on this upcoming event. First of all, I am a fan of beauty pageants; and secondly, if there is anything that showcases our beautiful African continent and people in a positive way, then I am all for it!
So, the first ever Miss Cameroon South Africa will be held at the Market Theatre in Newtown, Johannesburg during Women’s Month on Saturday the 8th of August 2015. The grand finale will be produced and directed by world renowned show producer Mr Jan Malan of Umzingeli Productions. The pageant is inspired by the strength and potential embodied by the women of Cameroon. Mckevin Ayaba Dormithienne and Vanessa Mbenoun in association with COMICA (Miss Cameroon Organisational Committee) have chosen to invest in the future of the continent’s ambassadors by offering a platform to the vibrant Cameroonian women living in South Africa.
Candidates will be evaluated in five categories (native Cameroonian wear, swimsuit, talent, evening gown and interview) and the judges’ decision will be based on criteria such as leadership skills, physical fitness and the level of dedication to community service.
MCASA is a production that not only entertains but also educates on heritage, diversity and tourism. Entertainment on that evening include performances from musicians such as Buffalo Souljah, Della Tamin, Kimaany, Babalwa, TK ,Wax Dey and more. The event’s masters of ceremony are former Good Morning Africa presenter Precious Nkandu and Award winning Cameroonian MC Petit Libota.
Tickets’ prices range from R250 for single to R400 for couples and VIP tickets are R500 (single) and R800 (couple).
