A 20-year-old student of the University of Professional Studies (UPSA), Accra, Jasmine Djang, was crowned Miss Malaika 2020, at the Miss Malaika grand finale which was held at the Grand Arena at the Accra International Conference Centre last Saturday.
She beat nine other beautiful and intelligent young ladies to win the enviable title, cash prize and a brand new car.
Jasmine Djang gave the audience and judges the true definition of beauty with brains, as she wowed them with outstanding performances throughout the competition.
All ten finalists put up a good show but Jasmine proved a tough competitor on the night.
She will now take on the role of Miss Malaika after Phylis Boison, from the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) won the title in 2019.
Olga Kam Aduama, a pharmacy student of the University of Ghana, was crowned as the first runner-up and Franklina Shalom, also a University of Ghana student, was the second runner-up.
The Malaika night was thrilling as there were music performances from artistes such as Kidi, Adina, among others.
