Sierra Leone is experiencing a shift in the entertainment industry. It is no longer a secret that pageantry is moving to the apex in the industry. Over the years Sierra Leoneans were not used to watching beauty pageants or better still had any interest in it.
Of recent we are all seeing pageantry as something that will help fly the Green, White and Blue far and beyond. For the first time in the history of our country, with the help of people like Natasha and the likes, our country was called upon to take part in the Miss Universe. It was indeed not a mistake by the organizers to call on us. Our country was well represented by a young and dynamic lady in the person of Hawa Kamara. The 2013 Miss West Africa represented us adequately and was chosen among all other contestants to be interviewed by CNN. In that interview, she sold our country to the outer world.
Looking at pictures of the Young lady flooding on social media and other places tells me that if given more attention to pageantry, our country, can produce more ladies that will represents us in the world and do better.
You will also know that pageantry is taking a shift after the recent launching of the inter secondary beauty pageantry by one of our very best Dijah Kay. This competition again will help tap on talents in the pageantry world.
With the above and many others, you will notice that if government and other lovers of pageantry give more attention to it and try to develop it, it would see a boom.
Let us spot talents and train them for the future.
