Aphua Akrofi from Accra has been chosen as Miss World Ghana 2017. She was 1st runner-up in Miss Ghana 2015. Aphua will now represent Ghana at Miss World 2017 in China next month. She succeeds Antoinette Kemavor as Miss World Ghana.
It must be noted that Miss Ghana 2017 is to take place soon. However, the winner will not have ample time to prepare for Miss World 2017. Hence the organization has taken the wise decision of sending a more prepared girl to the pageant this year. This is how Aphua Akrofi has got the wonderful opportunity.
Ghana at Miss World
Ghana has been sending representatives to Miss World since 1959. Their first placement (Top 15) was achieved by Araba Martha Vroom in Miss World 1967. Next placement was achieved by Lamisi Mbillah in Miss World 2006. She also won the prestigious ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ title. Ghana again won this title and placed in Miss World in the year 2009 with Mawusi Apea. However, the highest placement of Ghana was achieved in 2013 by the charismatic Carranzar Shooter. Last year Antoinette Kemavor placed in Top 20. Will Aphua Akrofi achieve success at Miss World 2017 with her amazing preparation?
