Malawi’s prestigious beauty pageant Miss Blantyre is hastily approaching with only two weeks to go before beauties of the city invade Sunbird Mount Soche Hotel.
The colourful queen crowning ceremony is scheduled for 13th October. This year it’s spicy with the introduction of extra mouth-watering categories.
According to the organisers, they have included two more categories on this year’s menu. Chairman for Miss Blantyre, Daniel Ngwira, told this publication on Saturday that inclusion of the two categories is one way of making this year’s episode more exciting.
“Ex-Queens and Hot Mums are the two categories that have been added to make this year’s edition more exciting. However these categories are non-competitive,” he said
Ngwira clarified that hot mums category is aimed at celebrating the beautiful women of Malawi. This is in fulfilment of the brand’s value of incorporating all citizens of the country and all age groups. Considering that October is a month for mothers, this category will be one way of lighting up their month.
So far, three women have registered to participate with two more required to complete the line-up. It will be their opportunity to show the youthful girls how they paraded in their days.
On ex-queens category, Ngwira said that it will involve former models in recognition of their efforts in building the industry.
Musically, the organisers chose not to give it zero effort as they engaged the trio of Dan Lu, Lulu and Nesnes. The giants have worked on Miss Blantyre theme song tagged Chiphadzuwa cha Blantyre. Last year musician Mzati was involved in the theme song.
Lulu and Nesnes will also perform at this year’s Miss Blantyre event where Hannah Mhone will surrender her crown.
