Miss Universe Ghana Organisation, December 11, 2018 – Ghana’s queen at this year’s Miss Universe beauty pageant currently underway in Bangkok, Thailand, Akpene Diata Hoggar made Ghana proud when she drew loud applause at the National Costume Contest held yesterday as part of activities leading to the final contest on December 17.
Ms Hoggar hit the stage with a costume that depicted a modern day Nana Yaa Asantewaa, the warrior queen of the Asantes from the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
She stood astride on the stage for some seconds, with a fierce look in her eyes, pushed up the traditional staff in her right hand three times, and then walked off with the authority and elegance of a true warrior queen.
