Photos: Central Region’s Nana Ama Benson Wins Miss Ghana 2018

In spite of the numerous allegations and controversies that have rocked the Miss Ghana beauty pageant, organisers have, on Saturday night, crowned a new queen.
The controversies and allegations obviously didn’t deter organisers of the pageant, Exclusive Events Ghana and its CEO Inna Mariam Patty from going ahead to organise this year’s pageant.
At the plush Accra Marriot Hotel in Accra on Saturday night, Nana Ama Benson, a 23-year-old graduate of University Ghana Nursing School, who represented the Central Region, was crowned Miss Ghana 2018.
She beat nine other hopefuls at the finale which also saw her won Beauty with a Purpose, Most Disciplined, Miss Bikini and Miss Eloquence.
False claims?
The year 2017 did not end well for the organisers. Unfortunately for them, the nightmares of 2017 followed them into 2018. The pageant came under heavy public scrutiny.
Like an unfolding Cantata drama set to win an Oscar in an unknown category, a flood of serious allegations was levelled against organisers of the pageant and its CEO, Inna Mariam Patty.

Four former winners of what was supposed to the nation’s premier pageant - Margaret Dery (Miss Ghana 2017), Stephanie Karikari (Miss Ghana 2010), Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi (Miss Ghana 2013) and Antoinette Delali Kemavor (Miss Ghana 2015) - made perilous allegations of how they suffered physical and sexual abuse in the hands of the organisers.

The resignation of Margaraet Dery, who was crowned on October 7 last year at the Banquet Hall of the State House in Accra, stoked the Miss Ghana controversial fire.

Demand for proof
Reacting to the storm that the revelations had created, organisers dared the four winners to mention the names and addresses of the big men who wanted to sexually abuse them.
Exclusive Events Ghana, in one of their reactions, had famously said beauties without brains consider themselves as sex objects.
