ELEVEN models from Bulawayo are set to compete in the Miss UpperKlass Finals which will be held on 31 August at Bulawayo Theatre.
The beauty pageant will kick off at 11am ending at 6pm and thereafter an after-party.Organiser of the pageant, Meluleki Miles, from UpperKlass Connections, said they were ready to host the beauty pageant and everything was in place for a successful event.
“We had a selection competition two weeks ago and we selected the 11 that are going to be competing in the finals. This is going to be a good modelling contest and we will be having a number of artistes performing at the function,” he said.
Models have been chosen from different modelling agencies in town so as to give them another chance on the ramp.
“We have prepared special prizes for winners and this is just a boost for them to work hard before and during the competition,” said Miles.
Entertainment on the day will be provided by various artistes including dancehall artistes such as General Python, Digital B, Silent Assassin and Dancehall Rockers, with many more expected to confirm their participation.
“We will be having dancehall artistes performing for fans. Dancehall artistes have been sidelined a lot in Bulawayo and we are giving them a chance to show fans what their music is all about,” he said.
Miles said winners of the event will also take part in a donation to a local children’s home which will be chosen by UpperKlass Connections owner, Brian Siyamwe.
He called on fun loving Bulawayo residents not to miss out on this day as there will be plenty of entertainment for them.
“Fans should come in their numbers to watch models on the ramp and listen to some good music. There will be a special programme which we can not disclose at the moment but those who will come will be our witness after the show,” he said.
This will be one of the many shows that the UpperKlass Connection stable will be hosting in the coming months. Plans are at an advanced stage to host a Clash of the Titans Dancehall competition in the city.
“We want to revive the dancehall music scene in Bulawayo. The music has been on the decline but UpperKlass Connections want to unite all the Rastafarians in town and revive the music we love the most. It’s not dancehall we will be dealing with, we will have more pageants and we have opened a studio where we are nurturing different artistes,” said Brian Siyamwe.
