Photos: Ashanti Region’s Sarfoa wins Ghana’s Most Beautiful 2021

Published

on

The Ghana’s Most Beautiful crown is heading back to the Ashanti Region, the region of royalty, after its representative in this year’s edition, Sarfoa, was crowned winner on Sunday.

Born Benedicta Asamoah, Sarfoa beat competition from five others to win the GH¢10,000 cash, the brand new 4X4 car from MG Auto Ghana Limited and the crown.

Volta Region’s Setor came second while Western Region’s Manu was third.

Fourth was Upper East Region’s Wedaga with Oti Region’s Akosua and Bono Region’s Mfodwo coming fifth and sixth respectively.

It was a night of keen competition at the National Theatre, the venue of attraction, as the six finalists slugged it out with breathtaking performances in the first round.

Manu, representing the West, from Asankragwa to be precise, started it all with her performance that aroused security awareness.

Akosua’s passionate appeal for mentorship for young girls followed.

On her heels with her performance was Wedaga, who championed reproductive health education, calling for the subject to be discussed openly.

Then, came the real-life medical officer, Setor, whose performance on the crucial night denounced mental health stigmatisation, a move that was entrenched by an unprecedented performance by past contestants of the beauty reality show – GMB United.

 

Then came Bono Region’s Mfodwo, whose advocacy for orphans touched a number of viewers including guest-cum-long-time judge Linda Ampah.

The eventual winner, Sarfoa, was the last performer in the first round as she espoused an agenda – Agenda BRRVF – to demand a proper rehabilitation of the country’s prisoners.

All the first round performances were couched around the respective projects to be pursued by the finalists.

The second round had the ladies come in pairs to answer set questions posed by the two MCs – Cookie Tee and Anita Akuffo.

Incidentally, Sarfoa and Setor appeared first, Wedaga and Mfodwo came next and Manu and Akosua followed.

While Setor answered a question on government’s Agenda 111, Sarfoa’s intelligence was picked on the effects of by the Ghana Education Service’s ban of corporal punishment meted out to students.

While Mfodwo also gave her thoughts on women empowerment, her stage partner Wedaga shared hers on marriage.

Manu answered a question on agriculture while Akosua’s opnion was picked on the boosting of tourism in the Covid era.

But at the end of the night, the crown had to go to one person, as succinctly stated by last year’s winner Naa Dedei Botchwey.

And to the Ashanti Region it went. Safe for Sarfoa!

Aside the car, cash and crown, she will embark on an all-expense paid trip to Dubai and be a beneficiary of a one-year supply of GTP fabric.

Setor walks home with GH¢8,000 for coming second while Manu gets GH¢5,000 for coming third.

Wedaga receives GH¢3,000 while Akosua and Mfodwo get GH¢2,000 and GH¢1,000 respectively.

The Blackmob rapper currently boasts of the hottest song in Accra, Ghana and that’s a fact – according to Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra at least. Listen/stream ‘Boys Aye Wild’ here: https://gambomusic.ffm.to/gambo-boys-aye-wild

 

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.

 

Introduced in early 2021 by the Cupertino-based tech giant, City Charts is an updated playlist meant to bring local artists to the forefront of the conversation around music discovery, one it achieves by reflecting the musical tastes of listeners in over 100 cities from around the world on a daily basis.
