|A 24- year-old Sierra Leonean model, Alice Ganda, was the beautiful model adjudged winner of the September edition of Exopa New Faces contest last Saturday.
She beat nine other contestants to emerge winner after different rounds of interesting catwalk and fashion displays as well as talent performances.
Her fierce catwalk and confidence surpassed that of her colleague wannabe models. Behind her were Ghanaian model Rebecca Agbolosoo Mensah, a 24-year-old graduate of the University of Education; and a19-year-old Sierra Leonean model, Masery Sesay, who took first and second runners-up respectively.
The show, as usual, took place at the Exopa Burg behind the Zenith College. It attracted quite a number of modelling and fashion enthusiasts but not like the other editions.
Unlike the previous month’s show, Saturday’s contest did not involve male models but the show lived up to its billing. It started at about 10pm with a performance by an upcoming artiste called T.O.P, to pave the way for the models who hit the runway in African mini wears.
There were musical performances by other upcoming Ghanaian musicians during the show.
During the talent show, most of the models danced while a few sang.
The winners have a contract with the Exopa Modelling Agency and other juicy packages including cover page articles in NEWS-ONE and spotlight exposure on Metro TV’s Allo TiGo.
The event will continue every last Saturday of the month at the Exopa Burg where the event always takes place. The show is expected to be more exciting in the coming months.
