Video + Pictures: Mr. Ibu In Ghana For The Grand Finale Of ‘Miss Goldenwood Beauty Pageant & Talent Hunt’ Slated For December 22!

Ghanaians should prepare to have a laugh of a life time as the organisers of the maiden edition of the ‘Miss Goldenwood Beauty Pageant and Talent Hunt’ have flown one of the biggest Nollywood actors cum comedian, Mr. John Okafor aka Mr Ibu to Ghana.

In what seems like a ‘Mega Christmas Laugh’, Mr. Ibu who calls himself a ‘fool’ and ‘ugly’ is expected to subject Ghanaians to pure laughter and madness as he co-hosts the pageant, which seeks to “discover the next movie star” for the Ghana Movie Industry.

He is also in Ghana to help restore peace in Tamale in the Northern Region of Ghana after accepting the invitation by a former footballer who hails from Tamale, he met in Holland. More on this will be published later.

Few hours after touching, he visited many radio and TV stations to talk extensively about the two projects. After a running around, he visited the ‘Goldenwood House’ in East Legon to visit the remaining 10 contestants of the pageant.

He advised them to be serious and be grateful to the organisers for giving them the opportunity to notice their talent, reshape it for the fame and the glitz that awaits them. The contestants expressed their joy to him after advising and making them laugh out loud.

Mr. Ibu’s co-host for the finals slated for Thursday December 22 at the nation’s premiere entertainment centre, the National Theatre is not confirmed yet but rumours going have it that, it could be Akumaa Mama Zimbi of Adom FM.
