Applications are now being accepted from Afro-Caribbean girls who will like to take part in the first ever Miss Bronze UK Scholarship pageant scheduled for October next year in England. It follows last Saturday October 19th 2013 official launch during a red carpet/black tie event at the Marriot Hotel in the seaside port city, Portsmouth.
Among the star guests at the launch were Portsmouth female Lord Mayor Lynne Stagg, Nollywood actor Theodora Ibekwe-oyebade, Vivian Geh Effiom, Victorine Ndikum, and Dr, Augustine Forba. Soban DJ Eko Ngwashi was on hand again to provide music after he did same during the SOBA Uk convention that took place in Reading a week earlier.
The event was also note worthy because the first ever film written and Directed by socialite blogger Goretti Etchu-Egbe titled WOMAN, was premiered during the launch. The film examines the dramatic events that usually occur in a marriage when one of the partners decides to embark on an extra marital affair.
“A successful event depends on three things in my opinion: the right crowd, the right ambiance and good food. Miss Bronze UK Scholarship Pageant gets a big tick on all three”, Goretti etchu-Egbe said shortly after the launch.
The main organizer Esther Tabot Enaw said the event will identify and sponsor the most outstanding women in the Afro-Caribbean societies in the UK. “The reason d’etre of the Miss Bronze UK Scholarship pageant is to empower women of African and Caribbean origin. Transforming women who have fear in them to women who like David will gather their nerves and self-confidence to resist the any odds .
We want to create a new generation of leaders who are problem solvers” she said.
Javic Musiq and Rough Kumbaboy provided entertainment on the night.
Mrs Enaw is clear about what has to happen after last Saturdays launch; “It’s time we come together to help women and girls find and claim their inner power so that they can reach their full potential…to get involved in this project contact us through our website www.missbronzeuk.com.”
