Miss Ghana Ends The Era Of Money Buying Beauty Queens In Ghana As Roseline Okoro Wins Miss SMS…

2 min


When I heard that the organizers of Miss Ghana 2012 were going to crown someone as Miss SMS,  I asked myself what the heck is Miss SMS (SMS Queen)?

The organizers explained that, they  have realized some individuals with ‘loose money’ to throw away have in the past been able to buy countless top-ups for friends and family to vote for undeserving candidates to win beauty pageants in Ghana and as such, they were not going to let the 2012 Miss Ghana be ridiculed this way.

Immediately after hearing the above, I said to myself…I think I know the person who will win Miss SMS…

Let me play the devil’s advocate here…

Personally, I have an issue with the way the Miss SMS concept was brought to the attention of Ghanaians-the last minute approach (the first time I heard of it was yesterday on Peace FM).

The organizers made Ghanaians (especially those who wanted a particular candidate to win by all means) to spend money voting for this candidate thinking their votes will count towards who becomes the eventual Miss Ghana 2012 winner. When in fact, they were never going to be given that strength, instead a lousy award called Miss SMS was to be created for all the cash people were throwing into thin air. WHAT A LOST FOR SOME PEOPLE!

I can also see the sense in what the organizers did. There was no way they were going to cheaply sell the Miss Ghana crown to the highest bidder even if the person does not have what it takes to become a Queen-especially if the people she would represent (Ghanaians) would have an issue with her win.

At the end of the night,  Miss Roseline Okoro won SMS Queen…

There were other awards such as;

Most Beautiful Talent
Abena Appiah

Miss Congeniality
Biley Sung La-Bou

Miss Photogenic
Precious Kyei Bonsu

Miss Top Model
Naa Okailey Shooter

Miss Eloquence
Naa Okailey Shooter

Miss Fitness
Joan Ahiawordor

Most Discipline
Sabina Aryee

    1. @gaga, AND WHO SAYS WHAT IS NECESSARY OR NOT? I DON’T KNOW WHO DOES THAT ON THIS SITE BUT I SURELY KNOW IT IS NOT YOU.

      CHRIS WAKA WAKA 

    2. @gaga, Chris, I know we all get mean on this site, but this one is too mean (but funny though). Ha, did you have to put that arrow there? eish! wo tirimu y3 den paaa. adzen?

  1. I was waiting for this to show up. When the Okoro’s started their war with GC, I said that is the girls chance having been thrown out of the window.  lol

  2. Miss SMS will become talk of the town now.  But why that stupid title? Ah what will Miss SMS do? get free sms or what? nonsense 

  3. That title should have been People’s choice award or Most Favorite contestant.. WTF is Miss SMS Queen? Anyway, Inna did great with this pageant.

  4. Yvonne okoro and sister you have another chance to Win MISS sms again since you claim you are from Africa you can participate in whether miss Togo,miss Nigeria,miss Niger,miss Sudan or miss Somalia ,yes you are from Africa ….ignorance is curable but stupidity is permanent.

    1. @27calibre(O_0), lmao!!!!!! my mind exactly…since dey r africans dey can join any other pageant on d continent. miss sms is an insult bt at d same time a consolidation price to d dear sister of our african super star. wen pple were busy winning miss eloquence n d rest…..u get a miss sms pat on d bak? ridiclous!

        1. @27calibre(O_0), hahahahahahaha exactly rite she’s just ignorant u kno n all over the place with some small recognition she hw she’s turn into a dumb dumber dumbest gurl. i used to like her buh her arrogance and pride made me to think otherwise

    1. @B.B, hahahahahaha i think hence forth we all shud go to her for some top ups oooo. R. Okoro do u by chance offer both tigo and mtn or only vodafone?? cus i need some credits ooo miss sms. i think it will be a gud business for her if she start with some tigo and mtn transfer credits cus she’ll make money paaaaaa

  5. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA CNT STOP LAUGHING!!!!!! SO WHAT DID SHE GET? A TROPHY OR WAT? LOOK PPLE LETS FACE IT, GONE ARE THE DAYS WHEN GIRLS HAVE TO EVEN SLEEP WITH SOME ORGANIZERS OR PAY BRIBE TO BE CROWNED AS BEAUTY PAGEANTS. AM HAPPY INNA, FOR THAT MATTER A WOMAN WAS THE MAIN BRAIN BEHIND THIS EVENT, IT WAS SOOO FAIR AND I THINK THE DESERVING CONTESTANTS WON.IF U THINK U HVE MONEY, GO AND ORDER THE MOST EXPENSIVE-CUSTOM-MADE CROWN FOR YOURSELF FROM EMEFA JEWELLERY AND BUY AND YOURSELF A CAR WITH THE INSCRIPTION “SMS QUEEN” WHO BORN DOGG!!!!!!!

      1. @nat, No my dear, am not saying Yvonne shdnt have campagned for her sister, who in the world wouldnt support thier relatives when they partake in competions? Its just that the way Yvonne went about it was totally wrong.!!! She is rather trying to breed haters for her sister indirectly, i just feel sorry for her lil sis though, cus her big sisters action might disfavor her. IS BEAUTY PAGEANT THE ONLY WAY À GIRL CAN MAKE HER DREAMS COME TRUE.? ADZEN!

          1. True my dear,I dnt think any of the contestants went there to loose, but it shoudn’t look as if u dnt emerge the winner the world will come to an end??? There are most girls who ddnt emerge winners in beauty pageants and yet make good use the chance and work their ass off to become who they want to be! Look at Yvonne Nelson for instance, Roseline is a young beautiful girl with a bright future, she can reach as far as she wants only if she is determined to. @frog,

  6. @Gc do have problem with okoro’s family.there is no problem if roseline okro wins the competion. And there is nothing wrong with her nationality . I think is personal attack.

  7. Chris, u being Mean and very rude 2 the Okoro’s, may God 4give u.
    @linda, FYI, the okoros never started no war, GC did, pls check ur facts.
    Chris is just RUDE.

  8. u would notice most girls who win miss eloquence eventually emerge winners of any pageant. besides that, the Okoro girl didnt actually had what to win the crown. why i am saying this? well, she got facial beauty but doesnt have the required height n shape. ust take a closer look at NAA, she is very tall, got long limbs, got a perfect bbody shape with very flat skin, very beautiful dark skin tone, eloquent and infectious smile. Yvonne okoro or whatever she calls herself should know that beauty is just not about the face cuz when u for for the miss world, the girls who come to compete have the features of NAA. so if she thinks ghanaians are being ethnic bias then she should go back to nigeria and do her acting. who even made her an actress anyways? can see they really desperate for fame….some stars ghanaians hype…hahaha

  9. Finally a proper Ghanaian has been crown MISS GHANA n any byside GHANAIAN or better still NIJIAGHANA of AFRICANS as they claim they re STUPID OKORO u really want to rep GH at MISS WORLD????? U better enjoy ur MISS TEXT MESSAGE TITLE lol
