Chelsea Tayui unveiled as Miss Universe 2020
Chelsea Tayui has been unveiled as the Miss Universe Ghana 2020 last Saturday by Malz Promotions and the Miss Universe-Ghana Organisation, organisers of the pageant at a glitzy virtual show.
In view of the devastating coronavirus pandemic, the 25-year-old dainty queen was appointed, instead of being selected and crowned at a regular “open mass scouting” session, as had been the procedure over the years.
The National Director of Miss Universe-Ghana, Mrs Menaye Donkor Muntari explained that, “These unprecedented times called for us to make drastic changes in our organisation.” With a unanimous decision between Malz Promotions and Miss Universe International, we decided to privately appoint a representative this year,” she emphasised.
Mrs Muntari said it has been three years since Malz Promotions took over the Miss Universe-Ghana franchise and on Saturday, Ghana celebrated the third crowning under her directorship.
She said last year, the Miss Universe-Ghana Organisation decided to suspend production for a year in order to restructure and make significant adjustments necessary to enhance the pageant.
The National Director described the newly crowned queen as a young lady who is not only beautiful but one with a heart of gold, pointing out that, “In the next year, she would be our ambassador to the world, promoting Ghana.”
The queen, together with the Miss Universe-Ghana Organisation, raised funds to purchase a van to support an autism foundation in the country. She will also receive a brand new car for her personal use and other attractive prizes.
After receiving the mantle as Miss Universe-Ghana 2020, 25-year-old Chelsea Tayui thanked the Miss Universe-Ghana Organisation and Malz Promotions for the honour and opportunity to serve mankind and pledged her commitment to the task of helping to bring relief to the disadvantaged in society.
