Ngozi Nicholls wears the 2011/2012 Miss Back To Roots crownWritten by Precious Mills
BASSETERRE, ST.KITTS: Miss Nigeria- Ngozi Nicholls was crowned the 2011/2012 Miss Back To Roots last Saturday night at Carnival Village.
It was a night of irritating pauses for patrons and a poor crowd support, among other factors throughout the production of the pageant.
Nicholls took the winning spotlight away from her other three competitors. Sporting an ensemble called ‘Afro Carib’ she captured Best Costume as well as Best African Wear.
First runner-up was Miss Sierra Leone – Zemone Morton, whose eloquent representation allowed her to grab Best Introductory Speech.
There should have been five contestants collectively but one of the girls (Miss Cameron – Patricia Clarke) dropped out, it would appear from information gathered, about two days before the event.
Additionally, there had been a talent segment that night. However a winner was not announced because an award was not available at the time. Since this information was not announced at the show, patrons who attended the show and other interested persons should note that the winner would be given that award when it becomes obtainable.
Miss Ghana – Joeana Mc Carty and Miss Liberia – Juliana Josephs were the other two participants.
Highlight performances that night included Nicha B, the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) Dancers, Footsy and H20 Dancers.
The task of providing comic entertainment by Cuttoe, The Master of Ceremonies, to some extent, lightened the atmosphere.
The annual Miss Back To Roots Pageant organized by the CFBC's History Club is a fund-raising event.
