Tuesday, December 22, 2010 witnessed another grand celebration of fashion at the Osu Children’s home which featured the nation’s leading modeling agency. Exotic Model Agency was at it again- the second of its annual Christmas party with the children of Accra’s most famous orphanage.
Turning out to be an utterly fun packed event, it started just at advertised with a humid atmosphere which was perfect for the mid afternoon program. Several super models of the agency and other dignitaries were present to get the event running and also contribute to its success.
A Nigerian comedian was on hand to kick start the event after a brief prayer. Though unpopular in Ghana, he made a name for himself with his witty jokes and antics on the microphone. He got everyone laughing and on several occasions picked on the former Ghana’s Most Beautiful contestants who were present.
Project Fame contestant and also of Mentor fame, Nii, took to the stage to do what he is best known for. In a special performance for the children, the soulful singer was full of emotions getting a couple of the children to come around him. Interestingly, most of the children joined Nii in performing the song ‘Hail the world’ by the legendary Michael Jackson.
This was followed by the Walk Tall Fashion Show as introduced by the mc for the show, Ato Turkson of Ghana Television. The trained children made the fashion show segment a spectacle to watch as they exhibited tremendous talent and amazing walking tricks with ease in clothes designed by Empress Creation, Allan Davids and Oheema Kids Collection.
They made use of the runway and were joined by the super models of Exotic Model Agency who graced the runway with their engaging outfits that hanged around their adorable frames. Soon it was time for a cake cutting ceremony and presentation of assorted items to the administrators of the orphanage.
After then, it was a total fun fair with the dance floor getting flooded and sweaty. There were more to eat and also drink as the party continued into the night.
In an interview with CEO of Exotic Model Agency, he was full of joy and pledged his commitment to assist the home at all times. According to Bennet Adjei, the celebration is an annual event which his outfit started last year.
‘I was motivated by the talents I see anytime I visited the home. These are real icons in the making and it is in the right direction to put smiles on their faces aside training them for the future. It forms part of our social responsibility and giving back to society’.
